Ultima 9 - Ascension Game Info
Description: Ultima Ascension is the final installment to the Ultima Series.
The text of the press release below doesnot mention the plot to be inconsistent with previous ultima's and the buggy state it shiped in. Nevertheless a must-play for any rpg game lover.

Date: 07 Oct 1999

Product Description

Ultima Ascension is the next-generation fantasy role-playing masterpiece that delivers the glory of saving a legendary land of virtue from the ultimate force of evil.

In a world where action heroes flail blindly in the mire of humanity, you have the upper hand in Ascension’s deep, engrossing story line. You are the Avatar, the ultimate hero, who must free Britannia™ from the Guardian’s sinister machinations. With the help of allies, both old and new, you will battle powerful foes, unravel mysterious puzzles and struggle to restore the eight basic virtues to the land, before engaging the Guardian in the final battle for Britannia.

Ascension’s 16-bit, 3-D graphics transport you into a rich, incredibly detailed world complete with moveable camera views, real-life physics, 3-D sound effects and full speech for every character.

During your quests, you’ll encounter more than 50 types of fantastic creatures and monsters. You’ll engage your enemies using a powerful magic system that enables you to cast from 8 circles of magic or an innovative new combat system that is the perfect blend of strategy and tactics.

It’s the return of the best selling role-playing game of all time and Lord British’s greatest masterpiece ever.
