Ultima Online's 8th Expansion Dated

Ultima Online turns twelve-years-old next month, making it the perfect time for Mythic to release the game's 8th expansion pack, Ultima Online: The Stygian Abyss.

Ultima Online channels the classic first-person dungeon crawler Ultima Underworld on September 8th, with the Stygian Abyss expansion adding in the game's largest dungeon to date. They've filled it with imposing bosses like the Primeval Lich and the Stygian Dragon, and have even included PVP areas within for those who prefer killing each other at every turn. The expansion also introduces a playable Gargoyle race, with their homeland of Ter Mur just one of the many new places to explore.

"As the 12th anniversary of the storied Ultima Online franchise approaches this fall, we could not be more excited to launch UO's 8th expansion, Stygian Abyss," said Jeff Hickman, Executive Producer for Mythic Entertainment. "On September 8th UO players past and present will be able to experience all new content, including the new Gargoyle race and one of the largest dungeons in UO history."

The expansion will be available online for $29.99, or $39.99 with a month of game time. As a special added bonus, anyone who purchases the expansion before September 30th will receive a code to transform an existing character in a Gargoyle, which is sure to impress whatever ladies are still playing the ancient MMO.
