About Shroud of the Avatar

Shroud of the Avatar: Forsaken Virtues, set for a global release on March 27, 2018, is the spiritual successor to Richard Garriott’s wildly successful Ultima and Ultima Online games and invites players to immerse themselves in a rich fantasy adventure set in a persistent online world shared with many others.

As a multiplayer fantasy RPG, Shroud of the Avatar binds together many of the key features that made the Ultima series popular, including wide-reaching freedom to explore a living, breathing fantasy world enriched by a player-driven crafting and economic system; an advancement path where players are confronted with ethical choices based on Virtues;  multiple MMO gameplay features combining to comprise a unique, shared online experience set within a persistent world. Players can opt to play solo or with friends, owning their own houses or even entire towns, and sign up and cooperate within various in-game guilds.

Shroud of the Avatar’s crowdfunding campaign is one of the most successful ever for a video game. Since early 2013, Portalarium has raised nearly $12.5 million in order to fund the game’s development. After launching on Early Access in 2014, Shroud of the Avatar has been updated for backers every month.
