Ultima Online Retail - FREE!?

Rumors from the 20th Anniversary Party are that GamePlay starting in January 2018 will be free.  If you have a house and want to keep it or if you want to get a House, then you will have to subscribe.  The hope is that more players will come back to the game and new players may be attracted at first since it is FREE.  Also, they will maintain the UO Store and have other various tokens for sale...

Looks like they didn't really change this release much from the inside information we received months ago.  Hope it does well for them though!  *wink*

I'm wondering if they will try to implement some type of advertising system (embedded browser?) within the client for those free accounts...entire free to play model is ad dependent.  if they can do it, they can theoretically implement captcha system.... :o just speculating!

Does free account is to let ppl come back to the game.  Trying the game on a trial account for two weeks don't get you full experience.    back in the days UO try the same thing but leave the house available.  This is not new.

i believe they also mentioned that you will not be able to use your bank. with that being said old account that have stuff in the bank you wont be able to retrieve without an active subscription but they will be doing something allowing you to have some sort of storage. and i also think they discussed the multiboxing at the party as well. for now this is just he say she say stuff until it comes out.

This programm is to bring back old player that left and bring new young blood to the game.  A Lot have change and this is one way to introduce them.   Yes the free account will not be able to access some dungeon, loot IDOC, place house, Will have limited back storage.      If you decide to turn your active account into a free account, you will be losing alot of grandfather option. 

So if you are planning of having those free account to farm wood or iron, you are up for a rude awaking I believe.
