Ultima Online (UO) is a massive multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG), released on September 24, 1997 by Origin Systems. It was essential to the development of this genre, and is still running today.
The game is played online in a fantasy setting similar to that of the other preceding Ultima games. This is a custom-made ultima online free shard meaning that the content you experience here is not always the same as content on the original servers. UO: Addiction is designed to keep the essence of UO intact while still working to be unique among other servers. Almost 100% of our systems are hand crafted based upon our 20 years of playing the game, if they are not 100% our code we have modified it in a way to make it unique. We believe we are unique mixture of systems that is a nice blend between what we consider the longest standing PvP server UOGamers: Hybrid and UO Forever.
The UO: Addiction Server has a large mixture of unique systems with almost all possible vendors to train and sell basic items to you.
The shard also has:
- The Bank (Increased storage).

A small group of passionate individuals who enjoy working to bring back the nostalgia of Ultima Onine. While working to keep the server unique by implementing new systems and ideas.
A few years back, we all as a group decided to try and bring new features to an old game we have all so loved for so long, and still do today!!
We hope you enjoy the server and have as much fun interacting with the unique systems as we have during the course of development. This is a new spin on a very old game, you will find all the scripting to be unique and in most cases 1 offs.
