When Albion Online launches in July, it will come with five world bosses based on resources. These bosses will require coordination and cooperation of a raid-sized group of players to bring down but it will all be worth it. When each one is killed, the corpse turns into a resource node that gives players 2,560 Tier-6 crafting resources!
The Albion Online team has sent word that the Hector update will be live on all servers beginning June 7th. It will be the last update prior to the game's official launch on July 17th. Hector brings a number of big changes to the game including the new Black Market vendor, a massive overhaul of the Outlands and much more.
The Albion Online team has announced that The Hellgates combined PvP / PvE zone will be receiving a "facelift" according to Sandbox Interactive. One example is that the map and mob encounters have been redesigned so that PvP runs more smoothly and so that random monsters do not play a role in the outcome.
Sandbox Interactive has released a great new infographic to show off some pretty impressive stats from the Albion Online beta. Numbers include over 210k Founders taking part in 2.8M hours of game time to name just a couple. The data was compiled since the release of the Galahad update and between March 13 and April 9. The numbers will only continue to go up through the game's official launch in July.
The Albion Online team is ready to unveil some of the new Gatherer Equipment that will be of high value to those players who are out picking up resources to create new items. Specific gear is available for harvesters, lumberjacks, miners, quarriers and skinners that will provide significant bonuses when equipped during resource collection.
