Ultima V Remake: Lazarus

ltima V: Lazarus is an exceedingly ambitious project that greatly improves the graphics and sound of the PC version of Ultima V. However, that's not all. Rather than releasing an "upgrade patch," as happened with Ultima IV, what we've done is a true from-the-ground-up remake of the gaming classic, Ultima V.

It is built in the Dungeon Siege 3D RPG engine, which you can learn more about at DUNGEONSIEGE.COM, and it has brand new graphics, CD-quality orchestral music (including re-mastered versions of the original U5 music plus some new pieces), improved and expanded dialogue, and a much more "alive" design for the Underworld, amongst other improvements.

“The Shadowlords have come. Lord British, the True King of Britannia, has been taken by them. Blackthorn, friend of the king and regent in Lord British's absence, has fallen into corruption and seized the Crown for himself. The Companions of the Avatar, your friends, have been named outlaw and live in hiding. Britannia lies in darkness, in fear. Animosity and deceptions abound. You last left Britannia in a golden age of Virtue and Enlightenment, but it is to this that you return.

Save our King. Find a way to stop the Shadowlords. Free Britannia from Blackthorn’s tyranny. Light the way to some answers… before the shadows becomes so black that no answers can be seen. If you fall prey to this darkness, Avatar… then I fear we truly will be lost.”
