Ultima IX Patch Coming Soon

When Ultima IX: Ascension was released just last week, it was a bit disappointing to see that the support for Direct 3D was poor. Origin's programmers seem to care about the overall quality of their game though, and have posted up a statement at the official Ultima IX: Ascension about a future patch to help support with Direct 3D.

Greetings!

We have been following closely the responses of our fans, and we are aware of customer concerns, the greatest of which is the Direct3D performance of Ultima Ascension. The game is very important to us, and we have by no means stopped our work in ensuring that game is worthy of the legacy of Ultima.

We have also seen concerns dealing with the newer TNT drivers, and we have found a solution for this. A patch will be released very soon that will fix the TNT driver incompatibility, as well as address issues within the game, including some that we have seen from you. Our programming team is still hard at work improving the D3D support, and has, in fact, enlisted the help of D3D card manufacturers to ensure the greatest improvement possible. These changes will come in a later patch, after we are convinced that we have done everything we can to make sure that everyone can experience Ultima Ascension at its fullest. Please check here for announcements concerning the time frame of the improvements.

We also would like to announce that a FAQ is coming soon, which will provide not only official answers and recommendations pertaining to the game and technical suggestions, but also suggestions from the community as well. This FAQ will be updated frequently as new information is gained.
