Get ready for another fight, as the MMO Albion Online [Official Site] has its fourth major post-launch update with Merlyn.

Release highlights:

  • Faction Warfare - Join one of five factions based in the five Royal cities to participate in open-world warfare, claim enemy outposts, partake in dangerous trade missions, and earn valuable rewards.
  • Refining, Crafting and Resource Updates - Each city on the Royal Continent now has its own unique refining and crafting bonuses, offering new economic opportunities for traders and crafters - and resources have been redistributed to encourage travel and transport throughout the world.
  • Marketplace UI Improvements - The Marketplace UI has been completely overhauled, and two new features have been added: a clearer average price display based on actual sales, and in-depth sales history for each item at a given location.
  • New Dungeon, Trophies, Costumes, and More - Take on the new T5 Dungeon Stoneroot Caverns, decorate your home with all-new gathering trophies, dress in style with new wedding costumes, and experience numerous improvements to Albion's combat, UI, graphics, animations, and audio.

Here's their new trailer:

Personally, I'm looking forward to the big PvE overhaul that they're planning. Since I just don't have enough time to get good enough for all the PvP features, it doesn't really cater to me personally since there's not a decent amount of PvE content. Still, it's great to see the developers continue to expand the game in many ways.

The update has a few bugs (like loot distribution in HCE). But I am curious to check out all the new stuff like faction warfare. Pretty exciting times :D

I seriously need to get this game. lol. I'll be starting a new job soon, so maybe I'll finally be able to grab it. :)

Do note that end-game Albion is basically DOTA in disguise. If you don't like MOBAs, you will more than likely despise Albion beyond a certain point.
