Ultima Online Store Information
This guide will help you through the process of using the new “Ultima Store” feature. This is only a guide, the Ultima Store is accessed from your player within the Ultima Online game client. Before you can use the Ultima Store in game, you’ll need to purchase some sovereigns, a new virtual currency available in bundles from the Origin store. The rest of this guide will walk you through the process.
The Ultima Store is an in-game feature that allows players to redeem a variety of in-game items with sovereigns purchased from the Origin store.
Most items previously purchased from the Origin store that could be redeemed for in-game items are now available for purchase with sovereigns from the in-game Ultima Store. Your sovereign balance is stored in your master account wallet.
Expansions, Booster Packs, and Game Time codes still must be purchased through the Origin Store, as these items are applied directly to your account.
Before you can purchase items in-game, you first must purchase some sovereigns from the Origin store. Visit the Origin store and search “Ultima Online” to find these items. Please note, Sovereigns will not be available for purchase from the Origin Store until May 30, 2016.
Once you’ve purchase sovereigns you will be provided with a code via e-mail. Go to your account management page and enter the code and the sovereigns will be automatically applied to the master account wallet.
Any individual Ultima Online subscription account that is linked to the master account wallet will have access to any sovereigns purchased. We are not responsible for sovereigns spent by any accounts that are linked to your master account wallet!
After purchasing sovereigns, log in to Ultima Online with an account linked to the master account you applied sovereigns to and go to a guard zone or safe-log out area (House/Inn). You need to be in one of these areas to access the Ultima Store.
