Hi everyone,

I’m here to provide a quick update on our development progress and what you can look forward to in the coming weeks and months!

In our last roadmap update we gave you a first insight into our plans for Albion’s next Content Update. We announced that we’re planning to renew Open World gameplay in Albion Online, and since then, we’ve been working hard on making those plans become a reality. Soon we’ll be ready to begin sharing our progress in a new set of devtalks!

Next to these planned features, we’ve also looked at the feedback we’ve received on our Roadmap. Many of you asked us to also take a close look at power balance in the Outlands, and so we did.

The current strategic balance in the Outlands encourages large power blocks to form, and these power blocks in turn have an incentive to discourage conflict and raise a stable income by demanding rental payments from guilds under their protection. Enforcement of rental payme... Read more

With the upcoming standalone season, we will introduce Disarray, a Zerg Debuff mechanic. The idea here is to create a trade-off for bringing massive amounts of players. This way we want to encourage players to have more fights with smaller and better organized groups, instead of over-emphasising the sheer amount of players alone.

How this works
  • If 25 players or more of the same alliance are in the same cluster they all get a debuff: Disarray
  • This debuff reduces: Bonus Damage vs Players & Bonus Defense vs Players
  • The more players the alliance has in the cluster the stronger becomes the Disarray debuff
  • This feature will be launched with the upcoming event season
  • The debuff only applies to guilds / alliances. Groups of blue players on Royals or faction flagged players are not affected.

Energy Surge Season
Between Guild Seasons 13 and 14, there will be a shorter standalone season with its own unique rules and schedule. This season will be called the Energy Surge season, as it will offer increased Invasion Days that are much closer together than usual, and with greatly increasing Season Point rewards and Siphoned Energy rewards each time. The Season Point Score will also qualify guilds to determine the Hideout HQ declaration rights for Season 14.

Here is an explanation about the upcoming Hideout HQs: ... Read more

Dear fellow Adventurers!

I'm very happy to announce that you will have a new Community Manager from today onward! :thumbsup:

A little bit about my person: I'm a passionate Albion Online player and have been exactly that since free-to-play launch. That led to joining the moderation team and eventually applying for a position at Sandbox Interactive. I've been playing online games for a long time now, ranging from single-player adventure games over co-op first-person shooters up to medieval MMORPGs like Albion Online.

My plans for the future:

At the moment, we have a gap in communication between you (the community) and SBI. This has become abundantly clear over the last couple of months with many players being unhappy about that.

I hope to change that moving forward, additionally to other plans and ideas that I will be working on which I cannot ... Read more

Hey everyone,

We have updated the chart below with the most current information on Outlands zones. Most importantly, this chart now includes the Quality Level of each zone. While this information can be obtained ingame based on a zone's crafting bonuses, there is not yet a specific way to obtain this information directly.

Please note that Territory Season Points can be further increased by a factor of 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.4, 1.6, 1.8 or 2 by raising your Tower Level through Crystal League matches. For more information on that, visit: ... Read more
