Default Ultima Underworld and System Shock return

Looks like there's a new sequel to the original Ultima Underworld games, fresh finished:
Underworld Ascendant
No clue how (if) good that one is, yet. It's available through Steam only it seems, and I'm averse using that due to it's DRM policy. Doesn't look bad if not exactly up to today's standards, though there's barely any screenshots on the website.

There also seems to be System Shock 3 in the making:
System Shock 3
There's some news on that one's progress on the forums, looks like it will take a while yet.
Both games also seem to be made by the same team, notable Warren Spector and Paul Neurath who were behind the original old games.

Ascendant have bad reviews so far. Seems, it was released too preliminary. We'll see if it will became better.

I noticed this funny thing back when Spector was invited in the team for Underworld. ( As it's known, he was the man behind System Shock that was written to implement Spector's Ultima Underworld engine features that was unsuitable in UU). And I was amused when subsequently Spector & Team announced System Shock 3!
