Richard Garriot announced today that he has begun work on a new RPG called Shroud of the Avatar. This new game will be full of great fiction (storyline), and many other innovative things that made his Ultima series so great. I'm pretty sure it will be an online MMO, but feel free to correct me. He has a Kickstarter project which he opened today and already has 1/5 of the backers. It's getting backed very quickly, so be sure to back it if you want and you can ensure yourself access to beta and even alpha.
Richard Garriot is the man behind the Ultima series, and Ultima Online is the longest running MMORPG (unless someone can prove him wrong? o.o).
Alpha is expected to start in December 2013
Anyways.. Here is the Kickstarter page.
The video is on the Kickstarter Page!
PS: Feel free to move this thread to the appropriate section if you feel it doesn't fit the F2P MMO section. Thanks.
