Albion Online, the Linux-friendly MMO has another blog post and video detailing changes coming to this interesting MMO.

Note: The game is currently in Beta. If you buy it now you can play it any time, but a player-wipe will happen before the full release.

It seems they will start to reward people who do a lot of gathering (wood, stone, iron etc) by giving them new unlocks like a helmet, armour, shoes and a backpack. As currently, people who prefer gathering over combat are a little left out. It seems each resource will have it's own set of gear too, adding up to 20 new items to get. This is great, as it will make it much more worthwhile!

Royal Equipment will be making a return, which are special items acquired by doing PvE missions.

They are also going to bring in more quality of life improvements and general balance changes to make PvP combat more fun.

I am interested in these quality of life improvements, as they've made massive progress in making the interface better and it's actually pretty good now.

I will be playing plenty of it when it leaves Beta, so be sure to join in as we will make a GamingOnLinux guild for sure!

It's really good to see more PvE content start to flow into the game, as it was one of the points I noted the game was lacking in my last review of Albion Online. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

I bought Albion Online when the beta started. But haven't really played more than one hour so far ;-) I'll certainly take a closer look when the full release happens. I do like the effort they are putting into it.

I'm really glad to hear that Albion Online is providing more content for the PvE-centric players. I'm not much for PvP play in anything more complicated than backgammon, and up till now Albion has seemed almost wholly given over to PvP play. I'll be interested in following this game more closely if it continues to move in this direction.

FUN FACT: I never would have heard of Albion Online had I not been reading GoL! :D

I hope this game gains a lot of steam. Linux needs some good mmo rpg and I need my fix.

I fear that all this pve content will destroy the player run economy, thus the sandbox. I fear this will kill the ideas behind Albion that I bought and supported. More Pve content (from NPCs) means less interaction required between players. Not only for PvP but in general.
