Ultima Online: Kingdom Reborn was a client for the 1997 MMORPG Ultima Online, created in 2007 with updated graphics. Kingdom Reborn was not considered an expansion pack and could be downloaded for free.

Gameplay[edit]

A series of clues provided by developers via an in-game event arc allowed players to find a URL on the Ultima Online website wherein a simple message was contained as well as a Flash movie featuring screenshots of the upgraded graphics.

In addition to the upgraded graphics, there was a newer, more streamlined interface. Some of the changes included hot keys, a scrolling bag configuration and a new character sheet.

As of September 2009, the Kingdom Reborn client has been superseded by a modified version of the KR client, now called the "Enhanced Client".[2] The Kingdom Reborn client no longer works on official shards.[3] The new "Enhanced Client" keeps the rendering engine (including particle effects and light source rendering) from Kingdom Reborn, but not the KR graphics.
