“Welcome to UO Evolution, celebrating 12 years online!

UO Evolution Ultima Online Free Server
#1 Custom RunUO Shard Emulator! Log in and play for FREE!

The Grand Auction is the 3rd Sunday each month!

UO Evolution is the flagship development shard online since 2010. Come explore the endless adventures of a truly custom Ultima Online shard experience!

“The Game Has Evolved!” and is “Better than the Original!”

UO Evolution was designed around the idea of having a public shard to further the development of the RunUO Emulator, in an effort to provide an enhanced version of the original UO game we all love. Over the past 12 years, UO Evolution has built one of the strongest, most supportive game communities and has become the #1 custom freeshard

UO Evolution is a unique shard that develops its own exclusive PVM and PVE content, along with including the best aspects of the original AOS, SE, ML and SA expansions. The shard has been online since 2010, and has 10,000+ current accounts and an average of 550+ players online, peaking around 1000+ during prime-time events

Live events and in-game events are a key feature of UO Evolution’s success, which makes it vastly different from any other Free Shard. There are different types of events, which are run over several days or at specific times. Events vary in difficulty and are a great place to meet up with your shard community.

UOE is hosted on an ultrafast new Enterprise Level, dedicated private server. Our ping times are the fastest in the top 10 freeshard top lists!

If you enjoy a challenging PVM environment, custom PVP, strong community reviews and active staff/developers then this is the right custom UO shard for you!
