Ultima Online Reactivation & Eighth Age Beginning Update ID

Beginning today, former players of Origin's Ultima Online are being allowed back into the game for a limited time. The Homecoming Reactivation allows users with an expired account in good standing to play from September 27 to October 10 for free. The game client can be downloaded and old passwords and account information should be valid. Check out the directions here. The retail release of Mondain's Legacy has been replaced with an Eighth Age anniversary set. This new retail box will come with a rare blue soulstone, a free advanced character, atlas, six of the previous expansion packs and more. The set is expected to ship on October 18 and includes 45 days of Ultima Online service. You can order it at Amazon for only $16.99. It's a great deal for people who get hooked again during the current account reactivation.
