Albion Online is finally getting closer to making its way to our tablets (since the game is going into beta soon). It also continues to grow and change. Next week, the Kay update will go live, and it’s bringing some important changes to Guild vs. Guild Battles and Raids. Guild vs. Guild battles will see a new Season Mode, which will run for three months at a time. During a season, players will collect points with their guild for either holding onto resource territories or conquering enemy ones. At the end of the season, the guilds get a total score and the winning guilds get to have their emblems hoisted in Caerleon for the whole next season. And as long as your guild controls the territories, you all get a special currency you can use for exclusive items or new battle mounts.
The update will also improve raids, since now you’ll have the ability to take down the energy-gathering mages of your opponents, blunting their strength. Kay will also add new Battle Mounts, hardcore expeditions, an extended tutorial, and better game performance. I hope to see the game out on tablets soon because I have a 12.9 iPad Pro waiting for it. Gallop this way to find out more about the update and this way to check out our forum thread.
