Sandbox Interactive has released a new developer video blog today, detailing the current state and work-in-progress elements of Albion Online, their successful sandbox MMORPG whose 80,000 founders are currently enjoying the fourth month of its Closed Beta. In the video, Game Director Robin Henkys and Creative Director Jörg Friedrich look back on recent developments as well as giving a sneak peek of what is to come in Albion Online’s near (and not so near) future.
After discussing previous updates, Henkys and Friedrich reveal some of the biggest changes that the upcoming Cador update will bring to the game: an overhaul of the death mechanic which allows for more fluent group play, a reworking of the fame system that incentivizes playing in groups as well as more Gateway dungeons, this type “Heretics-themed”. On top of that, they hint at some major changes coming to the world of Albion Online that will make the game even more immersive.
