Lord of Ultima

Maxis seeking director for "online simulation"

Jaz McDougall at

This is from a job description on EA's job listing site: "Maxis is seeking an experienced Development Director to lead the development of an unannounced next-generation Online simulation game." Ladies and gentlemen, either EA have gone insane and they're doing The Sims Online again, or they're doing a browser based Sims thing that may or may not end up on Facebook. EA have already had some success with Lord of Ultima in the free-to-play browser game area, certainly. The job listing is here.

Lord of Ultima review

There’s something enjoyable about progress. Building a village, a town, and filling it out until it’s a city. In Lord of Ultima, you are a lord, not some filthy adventurer. Your peasants do the grinding, the building, and the levelling, while you get to watch the gold roll in.
