It’s been 15 years since the launch of the original Ultima Underworld: The Stygian Abyss and now players can finally get their hands on the latest sequel, Underworld Ascendant, albeit in the form of a pre-alpha build.
GOG has announced that EA has requested they remove the Ultima Underworld and Syndicate series from sale starting next week
Paul writes: "Underworld Ascendant is an immersive first person dungeon crawler that is heavily based around the much loved Underworld Ultima in which you play The Avatar (sadly not the airbending variety); a hero tasked with venturing into The Stygian Abyss, in order to do battle with the demon Typhon and his undead hordes."
From PSU: "When Ultima Underworld released on PCs back in 1992, it was a revelation. Developed and produced by the same developer that would go on to create the legendary likes of Deus Ex, System Shock and Bioshock, Ultima Underworld was a first-person RPG that thrust players into a subterranean world filled with sentient, intelligent races, a great story and danger around every corner."
