We've been keeping a pretty close eye on Albion Online, the cross-platform sandbox MMORPG that promises to bring to mobile a very complex and deep game. If you haven't heard of the game before, Albion Online will bring a PvE and PvP medieval fantasy world with a player-driven economy—where all equipment items are player-crafted—along with a unique classless system and much more. The game is scheduled to release on PC in July, and today the developers announced the last big update prior to release, and it's an important one indeed. The update will improve the Outlands, the lawless territories of the Albion world. The developers weren't happy with the way harbors and cities in the Outlands fulfilled their role of being a home for guilds that lack territory, so they will be replaced with a single access point, the city of Caerleon.

There are also changes in the distribution of resources, with the harder Outlands zones receiving higher amounts of enchanted resources, which should act as a magnet for those of us seeking rare resources. And secondly, watchtower territories within the Outlands will be boosted to make them more attractive for those Guild vs Guild fights. I'm looking forward to getting this game on my tablet and streaming it on our Twitch channel, so hopefully it's not too far into the future.

    Please be universal.... or Iphone7+ at least

      I reeeeally am hoping it will be at some point as well. I have an IPAD 4..... but its just sooo dated compared to my iphone 6 plus. Sadly, I am pretty sure it will not be, at least at launch, on phones....I believe on their website it only lists tablets. It has been in beta for android but never offered beta for ios, and I am not sure if android users were limited to tablets or not.

        The game doesn't even support the iPad 4 so rip

      • Tychaeus

        Oh yay. Well I s'pose I can always play it on my monster PC...but sometimes It's just more fun to be able to play a game like this on mobile. I still am hopeful for some phone love in the future maybe.

        Indeed. 'On the go' just feeds the right feeling at times. That's a perfect reason as to why I just bought Chroma Squad on iOS instead of on my PS4. Just feels good to hop into it on my phone while on a break instead of waiting till I get home to play it.

      Hoping as well...

    I played this (beta) for a couple weeks on Mac about a month ago. I found it really fun for the first day or two, but then it quickly turned into a big grind (and not even a fun grind at that). I was so looking forward to playing this on iPad, but I think I'm going to pass now.

      Oh rally? Well hmm, maybe ill just settle for the Exiles of Embermark, Morphite, and Iron Marines that should be out before or around the same time then....which will sate quite well.

    Albion is at least coming to iOS where as pantheon from what I've read on there site isn't coming to iOS.
    Pc first then mac and who knows after that kinda doubt it thou.

    • jForsythe

      p.s. Someone needs to release EQ on iOS and I would be happy, played beta for that and the next five years so miss it

      • Henry Law

        lol.. sony has sold the the game and copyright to some lame company i think called daybreak? thats not gonna happen as they even axed the development of eq next, companies like that would just milk that franchise until its deader than dead

    • Henry Law

      i think they are gonna release it simultaneously on pc & mac, and its about to enter alpha testing, lol of cos its not gonna be on ios , just trying to let more people know about pantheon

      omg, i still remember my young brother (he was 8 years old ) he was so addicted to eq and playing non stop for days without sleep and not even bother to take a shower and he reeks !

    Ditto, wish I hadn't paid for early access. Never played EQ -- I was too addicted to Ultima Online. After that played DAoC, the Star Wars Galaxies, then WoW (all for a pretty short time since none of them grabbed me like UO). I was really hoping Shroud of the Avatar would scratch the MMO itch but even that doesn't grab me.

    • Henry Law

      Pantheon : rise of the fallen is the last hope of old school high fantasy MMO for humanity ( since all games nowadays are so retarded and its gonna get worse ) developing by the original EQ development team, you should check it out, i know it will scratch the MMO itch

      i have pledged for $300 so that i can join the founder's guild at launch lol
