Sandbox Interactive is celebrating the first anniversary of Albion Online with a look back at the weeks since launch.

Albion Online will be getting a big new update on May 2nd that will bring a number of significant changes to the game. Most notably the “Lancelot Mid-Season” patch will see a rework of siege camps along with “wide ranging weapon and armor balancing changes”. In addition, and due to player feedback, a re-spec option will be added to allow players to “move skill masteries between paths on the Destiny Board”.
Sandbox Interactive has confirmed that a number of employees have been released now that Albion Online is a fully released game. According to a statement from the team, this brings the numbers of active developers to pre-beta levels, generally a typical move for companies after the release of a game. Prior to the layoffs, staff numbers approximately 50. After the reduction, developer count is 31.
Albion Online players will be able to take part in a celebration of the cold season when the Breath of Winter event kicks off on January 10th. The event will provide players with a new quest line with exclusive themed rewards and activities. In addition, a new PvP battlefield will be part of the update as well as “a winterly version of the famous “Three Sisters” expedition”.
Sandbox Interactive has announced that the next major update to Albion Online will be coming to live servers on December 6th. Called “Kay”, the update is focused on making a number of basic improvements to the game as well as updates to Guild v Guild and Territory Raid battles. A new mount will be added too.
