    I'm pretty sure Ultima IV's been genuinely, legally, not-just-using-imaginary-copyright-laws free for a very long time, actually. But of course it is nice to see it officially designated as such in a convenient location.

    Looks like it hasn't had the VGA patch applied.

    It's good to see that another game from the 90s has been designated freeware, at least for the time being.

    The only Ultima game I have ever played was being terrible at Ultima Runes of Virtue 2 on the SNES. Is this game worth checking out considering that?

    Runes of Virtue 2 is quite different from the regular Ultima games, I understand. (And many say it is quite terrible.)

    Yes and no.

    It seems the game was only available for legal download at some sites only - everyone else? Not so much.
