Electronic Arts yesterday released Ultima Online: Lord Blackthorns Revenge in New Zealand. The game features character designs and artwork by legendary Spawn creator Todd McFarlane.

"Enter a world oppressed by evil forces, where diabolical villains have returned and aligned their powers in an attempt to conquer and vanquish the virtuous. Over 30 new monsters and creatures designed by Todd McFarlane add a darker twist to the once familiar land of Ilshenar. A new land area located in the center of Ilshenar is the setting for the beginning of this dark siege. Who will prevail in this legendary battle of good versus evil? What new characters will emerge to protect and defend the heroes of Britannia? What frightening and evil foes await them?

Join the world of Sosaria and help the citizens save their land from Lord Blackthorn's Revenge."
