Albion Online is going to get bigger once again and the Percival actually sounds like it's going to be pretty good, especially if you're a solo player.

For starters, the new randomized dungeon feature is finally going to have a version for solo players! Just like the version for groups they will spawn at random throughout the world of Albion. You will be able to use dungeon maps to unlock higher tiers, for a bigger challenge and better loot too. That makes me happy, as Albion is far too geared towards bigger groups, nice to see solo players get some attention this time. They also have a new video up, with Game Director Robin Henkys giving some details on the solo dungeons:

Albion is also going to get a brand new "customization and vanity system", allowing you to adjust your look from a beard to underwear and mounts will also get skins too. There will be free options and the ability to buy additional options using in-game Gold. From what I've read on the official Albion forum, the player character model is also going to see some upgrades to look better.

Combat is set to get more interesting too, with new creatures being introduced. These new mobs will also have a range of new spells and abilities. To help with that, the Percival update will introduce players to a bunch of new spells and abilities too, so all forms of combat are going to see more variety.

On top of all that there's going to be language channels for the chat, hotkeys for emotes, new Dungeon templates for groups to add more variety, the personal bank UI is getting some upgrades to allow unlockable tabs for city banks, territory banks, and guild vaults and more.

You can see their news here and the dedicated update page here. Percival will launch free on July 10th.

The random dungeons for groups were a really nice addition. The solo ones will certainly be good as well

I'm just glad that there will finally be an English Only Channel. The way it is right now is just ridiculous.
I started playing 4 days ago and was honestly going to quit until someone told me about this update.

I just can't play a game where the Main Chat Channel is spammed with foreign languages 24/7.

Why they didn't separate the languages to begin with is a very good question. Every other game does this, they either have separate servers or they mandate English in Main Chat.

The game is very grindy and sadly also PvP only, it would work fine for a just PvE server as well, it's a perfect game to putter around and waste time in (that's why we game right? having fun, slacking and enjoying our selves) but the PvP part is a killer + it is VERY grindy when you get up a bit in skills, the amount of materials you need is ridiculous
