Albion Online's "Joseph" update has been given a release date of September 27th and it does sound like a pretty good one.
This big update adds a bunch of notable features, my favourite of which is an Arena battle mode. This is where two teams of 5 battle for control points. If your team wins, you will gain Arena Sigils, which can be redeemed for vanity item rewards.
Thankfully, they're also including some much needed quality of life updates. This will come in the form of overdue UI updates, like an updated social menu, making it easier to invite friends to a party and so on.
An exciting sounding Expedition, the "Three Sisters Expedition" will be released with this update too. You will be tasked with finding a lost Royal Guard suspected of being a traitor. Another new one is the "Eternal Battle Expedition", which sees you battle the undead along with the "Governor" to release him of his eternal duty to defend a city. The Expedition feature is great, I really hope they pump out a lot more of them in future.
I'm hoping this might make it more interesting to me again, as I burnt out so quickly on the grind of it feeling like there wasn't enough to do. This update sounds like a great step in the right direction, that and they finally got their server issues sorted!
