Albion Online brings in the battle mounts
Albion Online PvP Game Designer Michael Schwahn jumped into the dev talk this week to discuss the new battle mounts that have come to the game, such as the command mammoth and the flame basilisk. While you can fight and cast spells from these mounts, the team doesn’t want to see only mounted warriors on the battlefield. To enforce this, the bonuses from mounts do not stack, which means you only really need one of each type in your group to stay effective.
“We envisioned this is we have two armies clashing, and you have 10 to 20 normal players without mounts and one or two mounts accompanying them and amplifying their strength,” he said. “We don’t want to push the game into only mounted players.”
Schwahn also talked about artifacts, which are powerful weapons that excel in group battles. Get the full scoop after the break, and if you’re on iOS, make sure to check out the just-launched testing for that client.
