Ultima Online and Dark Age of Camelot listed on Steam Greenlight

Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

Ultima Online and Dark Age of Camelot, two MMORPGs both with tenures longer than a dozen years, both have appeared on Steam Greenlight, about a month after Broadsword Online Games assumed control of them.

If approved through Greenlight, the clients themselves would be free, but both carry monthly subscription costs. Both offer 14-day free trials to new accounts.

Ultima Online launched on Sept. 24, 1997, two years before Everquest, making it one of the longest-running MMOs of all time. Dark Age of Camelot launched in 2001.

Broadsword took over production of both titles on Feb. 1 though it continues to partner with prior developer Mythic Entertainment for operations and support, and with Electronic Arts for billing and account support through Origin, an online competitor to Steam.
