Ultima creator Richard Garriott’s Kickstarter for a new RPG, Shroud of the Avatar, has closed at $2,049,849 — double the requested amount of $1 million. The final amount includes $130,000 of non-Kickstarter pledges garnered through the official site.
Stretch goals reached during the drive include a pets system, new shipping and naval exploration areas as well as a new island, a serialised Tracy Hickman novel, and castles and keeps for players to take and fight over in PVP.
The current launch window is pegged for October 2014, with four more games to be released annually. It will launch under a pay-to-play model, with no subscription required.
