Albion Online is ticking down to the official start of its closed beta test on November 23rd, and in a new state of the game post, the developers talk about what changes and improvements will go into the build when players see it later this month.
There’s nothing earth-shattering in regard to the changes, but most should be welcome. There’s a new weapon, the quarterstaff, as well as visual improvements and individual looks for each of the types of laborers. The team took away the silver cost to crafting and guaranteed all farmers a return of a seed when harvesting crops.
The destiny board has gotten an overhaul since the summer alpha to make it more compact and understandable, while the land auction system should be in place for the beta. Sandbox Interactive said that the increased number of testers mean that there will be two continents open when the CBT begins, with shipping routes available between the landmasses.
