HomeLanFed hat ein Interview mit Jessica Lewis publiziert. Die Produzentin der kommenden Ultima Online Expansion Samurai Empires wird zu den spieltechnsichen Verbesserungen befragt. Mit grafischen Erneuerungen können die vielen Anhänger nicht rechnen, es werden lediglich neue Pflanzen, Bäume und Kreaturen geboten.
HomeLAN - What types of quests will be found in Samurai Empire?
Jessica Lewis - There are starter quests for new Samurai and Ninja, which will give players a chance to learn some Ninjistu and Bushido skills. Beyond that, there is a young player quest that will allow new players to build up skills and practice combat with the new abilities.
HomeLAN - What new monsters will be encountered in the expansion?
Jessica Lewis - There are 20 new monsters, most based on Japanese mythology. For instance: The Hiryu: A winged Dragon that’s extremely tough, but can be tamed and ridden; The Fan Dancer: Beautiful but deadly, her fans are as sharp as Samurai swords. She is said to guard her master’s treasures and secrets; The Lady of the Snow: An undead spirit, she haunts the frozen tundras of Tokuno. She can turn you into ice with but a touch.
