Albion Online adds 5v5 PvP arenas with today’s Joseph update
The long-awaited Joseph patch has just landed in Albion Online, its first update since its launch this past summer. Albion heard you liked PvP, see, so it’s adding a side of PvP to go with the rest of the game, which is already mostly PvP. Specifically, Joseph adds a new 5v5 PvP arena system.
“We are excited to finally release our first content update, Joseph, post-launch. Now you can enter the Arena, a 5v5 battle with a control point mechanic, at a major city nearest you. Talk to Joan and redeem your winnings for envious rewards, like the Armored Sabertooth mount. Fill your pockets with riches of the dead in a Treasure Site found in each biome. Finally, if you’ve had enough of the same ol’ Tier 6 expeditions, now you can go on two more! See if you can defeat the three age-defying sisters and the relentless Governor.”
There’s more to the patch, of course, including treasure sites, smart casting mechanics, UI updates, new weapon abilities, and a pair of new expeditions. Enjoy the trailer and have fun storming the castle!
