Ultima Online: Stygian Abyss

We had one of those once. Haven't been able to ride a bike since.

Mythic Entertainment, an EA studio, today launched the official website for Ultima Online’s upcoming Stygian Abyss expansion. By visiting, players can unearth information on the newly-playable Gargoyle race, never-before seen spells, powerful new weapons and armor, an expansive and dangerous dungeon, and a variety of new, tough-as-nails monsters.

An entrance to the Stygian Abyss has been discovered upon the world of Sosaria, hidden in the seething caldera of a newly-risen volcano. At first glance nothing more than a colossal web of dank caverns and oppressive dungeons, it houses an ancient city that acts as a barrier between the worlds of Sosaria and Tel Mur, home to the Gargoyles. Masters of Imbuing and Mysticism, these clawed and winged creatures find themselves facing certain destruction at the hands of the Abyss, forced to delve into the secrets of the lost city and the rift to their sister world...

Released in September 1997, Ultima Online features an epic storyline both magical and fantastic. With devoted followers around the world, it has thrived for over a decade and spawned a number of expansions, making it one of the deepest, largest MMORPGs ever created.

Ultima Online:Stygian Abyss™ is scheduled to be released in 2009. To learn more head to This expansion is not yet rated.
