Publishing giant Electronic Arts have announced that the latest expansion for Ultima Online
will be released this summer. Stygian Abyss
is the eighth expansion pack for the game and promises a slew of new content to explore as well as a new playable race: the Gargoyles.
The Gargoyles have a slew of racial abilities including the ability to fly, which in turn unlocks special Gargoyle-only areas. However, players will also be excited to hear they've not been forgotten. There are a host of new lands and dungeons to discover from Ter Mur and the Gargoyle homeland to the Stygian Abyss dungeon itself.
EA are touting the Stygian Abyss as 'the largest dungeon area ever introduced to Ultima Online' which 'will contain new boss monsters of unparalleled difficulty including the Medusa, Primeval Lich and the Stygian Dragon, as well as Player vs. Player zones where adventurers will be turned against each other.'
Ultima Online: Stygian Abyss will require the original game to play, and more information can be found on the game's official site.
