Mo' Money, Mo' Multima Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Update ID

The Firing Squad has posted an interview with Mark Jacobs of Mythic Entertainment, the new man in charge Ultima. In an unusual move, Electronic Arts recently purchased Mythic and then charged the company with giving their classic MMPRPG a shot in the arm. Jacobs is very positive about EA's new level of commitment to their previously neglected Ultima property:
This decision by EA to put a lot of additional resources (and money) into the title shows, in a big way, its renewed commitment to online games. With the acquisition of Mythic and the revamp of UO, EA has shown that it is determined to regain the leadership position in a space that they helped define many years ago. It's a new day, a new EA, and this is only the beginning...
Contrary to some expectations, EA does not plan to dismantle the current UO team at their Redwood Shores location (pictured below). Mythic will manage the project from Virginia, but the current development team will remain in place.

Lost Ship of the Day: Vaktoth Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Update ID

This is the second in our series of 'lost ships' found inside Wing Commander III and IV. Like the special Dralthi featured yesterday, this Vaktoth is the unused 'ace' fighter from Wing Commander III. It would have been flown by Kramm "Deathfang" nar Caxki -- apparently the nar Caxki clan was rather short-changed by WC3. It's a little more subtle than Deathstroke's bright red ride... but what isn't?
