“The Game has Evolved…UO Evolution!”

UO Evolution is the most unique and customized Ultima Online (RunUO Emulator) free shard in the world. It is Ranked #1 by the community in the custom free shard category! We are also top rated on 30 Ultima Online voting sites.

With over 5 years online, 10000+ accounts and an average of 450 players online, peaking around 550 during prime time, our players enjoy a variety of events and holiday themed surprises almost every day of the year! Every play-style is accommodated here, although it is mostly PvM oriented with custom monsters and encounters that will have you feeling nostalgic but engaged throughout your quest in Britannia.

We are on an ultra-fast dedicated server. Our ping times are the fastest in the top 10 freeshard lists throughout the world!

If you enjoy a custom environment, strong community reviews and an active staff/developers, then this is the shard for you!
