Albion Online Entering Summer Alpha Phase

Sandbox Interactive’s cross-platform medieval style sandbox MMO, Albion Online, is entering its Summer Alpha phase this week. The game offers players extensive character customization with no class restrictions, a player-driven economy, and PvP. The open world action revolves around sieging, claiming, and defending territories.

Since the Winter Alpha, which took place between the months of January and February, Albion Online has gone through several improvements. The latest updates include:

  • Hellgates: Players can enter hell dungeons and engage in PvE fights against demons as well as 5v5 PvP battles. Hellgates only allow groups of 5 to enter a hell dungeon.
  • Factions & Missions: Players can engage in combat, crafting, gathering, and transportation missions for 4 of Albion’s factions in order to receive Silver. Which can be used to buy special faction gear.
  • Anti-Zerg measures: Groups of more than 5 players now appear on the game’s minimap for easier recognition.

For those interested in reading the full list of changes and new features for the Summer Alpha, Founder & CEO Stefan “Bercilak” Wiezorek has published a note in the forums.
