EA has pushed Lord of Ultima into open beta. The latest in the long-running Ultima series of fantasy games, originally created by Richard "Lord British" Garriott at the dawn of computer gaming, is a browser-based, free-to-play multiplayer strategy game by BattleForge creators Phenomic.

It's a free game supported by micro-transactions, with in-game bonuses available to purchase for real money.
