Party Like It's The First Age of Darkness
Shooter reports at the Chat Zone that Electronic Arts has joined the GameTap online service which, as a result, will soon offer Ultima I through VI as part of its subscription-based classic gaming service. The original article is here.
Gametap allows legal access to hundreds of classic games for a low monthly fee. Those interested in testing the service can apply for a free trial period. Ultima VI was the last Ultima game released before the original Wing Commander... it isn't hard to see a future where Wing Commander games (or, at the very least, the magnificent Ultima VII) are made available!
While excellent news for those left hoping for a legitimate way to play some of the greatest games ever developed, this is presumably also a crushing blow to those who have long decided they're allowed to steal these titles as "abandonware" on the questionable logic that no one is profiting off of them. I hate to say we told you so...
