EA has rotated in a new game to Origin’s free On the House promotion, and it’s another isometric game from the early ’90s: Ultima VIII: Pagan.
Specifically, you’ll be getting the Gold Edition of Ultima VIII, which usually sells for $5, for free. It was originally released back in 1994 by Origin Systems, the now-defunct developer co-founded by Richard Garriott and best known for its work on the Ultima and Wing Commander series. Ultima VIII is the second-to-last game in the main Ultima series.
As with previous On the House games like Syndicate (now back to costing $5), Theme Hospital, and Dragon Age: Origins, this is the full version of Ultima VIII, and you’ll be able to keep it forever. You can download it now through Origin.
