LEGO Ultima: Age of Darkness is a video game co-produced by TT Games and EA, and is based on the epic Ultima franchise created by Richard Garriott. As its name implies, this game covers the first three episodes of the Ultima saga, which encompasses the respective rises and falls of the evil wizard Mondain, his student Minax, and their "unearthly" child simply called Machinis.


LEGO Ultima was originally placed within Lord British's Castle, which also served as the main hub world. However, a running change was later put into place that made the land of Sosaria itself a hub world. Now, the game starts the player off in the "region" of Mondain, the main enemy of Ultima I. Once the player arrives at a certain threshold, the regions being held captive by the two other villains, sorceress Minax and the bio-mechanical Machinis ("Exodus") can be accessed via character special abilities. Players can also explore different locations around Sosaria, such as Lord British's Castle, The Royal City, the mysterious city of Dawn and Ambrosia, the lost continent that can only be accesses after several goals have been met.
