“Hector” is the latest update before the official release of “Albion Online”.
This update includes some improvements to the Outlands, the Sandbox-MMORPG. Robin Henkys, “Game Director” at Albion Online, explained in a video what changes are coming and what intentions are being pursued with them.
Caerleon As A Portal To The Outlands
The city of Caerleon, which is located in the center of the Royal Continent, will serve as the only access point to the Outlands. Via a single portal, the city is connected to different areas of the Outlands. The developers intend to end the existing states in the Outlands by this step. Ports and cities in the Outlands had become the home of territorial guilds and the banished player from the Royal Continent.
Resource Distribution And Other Changes
The distribution of resources in the outlands will be decisively changed by the update. All parts of the outlands receive equal amounts of resources. However, the “black zones” also receive a large number of enchanted raw materials. This change will make the outlands more attractive to gatherers. In addition, the watchtower territories in the Outlands are upgraded. After the update, only Tier 8 resources will be available there.
All ports and cities in the Outlands will disappear with the upcoming update. Players are therefore required to collect and store their items stored in banks and cityplots. Otherwise, these items will disappear with the update. Until June 7, 2017, the date the update appears, this must be done.
