The latest Ultima Online expansion has been released. Samurai Empire adds the Ninja and Samurai classes and provides an exotic new continent to explore. After Origin closed, production of this game was moved to EA's primary California studio. I haven't seen an actual box yet, but if you preorder you get a paper with an access code for an exclusive in-game item. The preorder slip still features a prominent Origin logo.

The game stands as the longest-running online subscription-based game in history.The pictures are pretty dated now, but it's amazing the game is still going strong after all these years. It is still one of the most popular massively multiplayer games around.
