albion online new development diary video in linux gaming news

Since we continue to follow the progress of Albion Online. Hence this is a new class of MMORPG gaming. Currently making strides towards the July 17, 2017 launch for Linux, Mac and Windows PC. So the news that the #game #developers have strong ties to their fans is no surprise. Due to the #release of their newest entry in a series of development videos. Which should have to keep those early adopters well informed. While also helping new players situate themselves in the world of Albion.
So in this latest news log, game director Robin Henkys tackles some important change. Hence the redesign of the lawless Outlands area. Which is set to roll out with their Hector update on June 7, 2017.

Development Video Summary:

  • Feeling that there was not enough action happening in the Outlands. Sandbox has decided to remove both cities and harbors in the area which weren’t providing enough crafted goods for smaller guilds. Instead, a single central hub is going to be set up. Requiring all current players to remove their funds from Outlands banks else risk losing their money.
  • A central portal will be set in the middle of Caerleon. So player can use it to jump to Outland exits with cooldowns that allow for balanced gameplay. The entrance can lead to anywhere in the Outlands, with no cost, but will bind players to their chosen gate for a period based on the difficulty and location of said door.
  • Currently under testing is a map feature allowing smaller groups to detect bands of 10+ players. Creating a more balanced gameplay. So smaller parties will not have to worry about being overrun by large groups. Giving them the option to skirt around to avoid combat.
  • Rewards in the Outlands are increasing to make it a more attractive place to go outside of the Royal Continent. Each section has a greater rate of enchanted resources, the highest is available in the higher Outlands.
  • Tier 8 resources will only be available in Watchtower territories. Which can be raided by outsiders.
  • + More!
