Vetus Mundus - an Ultima Online Freeshard
Royal Mundus Herold
Welcome to Vetus Mundus, an Ultima Online Freeshard.
Ultima Online is an old school isometric MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game). UO was released in 1997 by Origin and is still being developed to this day. As a Player you can choose between the original and traditional Classic Client (CC) and the modern Enhanced Client (EC).
Vetus Mundus is a private self-financed freeshard that has allowed players to play UO for free since its launch in 2004. To play on Vetus Mundus you need an original and unchanged CC or EC as well as additional programs which are available in the download area. Accounts are created instantly and do not need to be approved by the staff. On VM we feature all facets and game content up to Stygian Abyss and High Seas. But unlike the traditional UO servers, VM has additional custom game content (e.g. Sockets on items, Bio-Engineering, Pet-Level-System, Castle Siege, individual house construction, etc.), over 200 Quest NPCs and lovingly designed events. PvE content is available on all facets whereas PvP is only available on Felucca (exception: guilds/alliances or friendly duels). For fans of roleplay, RP is allowed and even encouraged in some areas; however, RP is not mandatory on VM.
If you are curious about about our world, you can find more information on how to get into the game on this page. If you have any questions please visit our Discord Channel. We are looking forward to seeing you soon on our shard. A friendly, helpful community awaits you and looks forward to new players!
