Open release period set for January 22nd.
Richard Garriott’s Shroud of the Avatar will see a second open period on January 22nd and will open up permanently in March. In the meantime, it’s crossed another Kickstarter milestone with $3 million in crowd-funding.
Writing in the latest update, Garriott stated that, “Shroud of the Avatar has crossed the $3M milestone thanks to your generous support. The team and I would like to express our deepest gratitude to all of our Backers for your belief in both our team and our vision for New Britannia.”
As of now, Shroud of the Avatar will be exclusive to the PC and will incorporate a shared worlds approach as opposed to being a massively multiplayer online RPG. More importantly, it will be the spiritual successor to the Ultima series and hopefully wiping away the horrible mess that was Ultima IX: Ascension.
