One of the most high-profile remakes during its development, Ultima V: Lazarus is a Dungeon Siege-based remake of Ultima 5 led by Ian “Tiberius” Fraizer. It was completed and released in the early part of 2006.
Tiberius, for his part, went on to serve as the lead designer on Big Huge Games’ Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, a semi-open world fantasy RPG. He is currently the lead designer for the next Mass Effect game, which is being produced by BioWare Montreal.
Lazarus features an enhanced and expanded musical score, additional plot elements, many new and exciting characters and side quests, as well as fully rendered cut scenes.
The project is available for download in its entirety here. In addition, there are available for download several mods, patches, and bug-fixes for it; Lazarus has spawned a modding community of its own.
