Major update to Albion Online, the fun MMORPG on Linux

I'm a pretty big fan of Albion Online, as we had a big drought of MMORPG games on Linux. Albion Online is in closed beta (you can buy in anytime) and it just had a juicy update.

The new update is named Aurelius, and it comes with a ton of fixes, new abilities for weapons, and more! The new dungeons to fight PvE sounds like a well needed addition for the game.

I've already put 16 hours into the game, and I plan to spend many more. It has a lot to do, and this update has made the game even more interesting than it already was.

There are parts of it that can be a grind, but they have already said they will be toning that down in a later patch.

You can check out Albion Online here (uses my referral link). Be warned though, there will be a wipe before the full release in a few months. It's still fun though, so come in, and join the Legends guild with me. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Yay! I play at this game also since 4 days. This game is amazing! I Play on my Ubuntu and Android!

This game works very well on Android (with bluetooth mouse) you should add a bluetooth keyboard and you play like a computer.

MHL for HDMI in screen (from smartphone) bluetooth keyboard + mouse and you play like a computer :D

The only problem is the FPS on large people city "like smoky bay" i have just 10fps. But outdoor no problem!

I recommand you to have a smartphone with 3GB RAM and a GPU with 120 GFLOPS power... Because my smartphone have 2GB RAM, and the game use all of my ram (the load is very long because i'm out of ram) and my GPU have 60 GFLOPS and i have 5-10fps with 120+ player on same zone. I think the double power for GPU is good :p

I'm a OnePlus2 user, i shouldn't have such problems... i'll let you know soon.

I'm not sure if Unity supports 64bit ARM, but i should be pretty fine anyway.
