The end of the world is just the beginning, at least according to several movie poster taglines that we’ve read. And as the sun sets on Albion Online’s current beta, it prepares for one last, grand beta test for later this summer.
This final beta will kick off on August 1st and run between two to three months. The team has a lot of new toys to deliver to its eager playerbase, including new worlds (Royal Islands and the Outlands), new biomes (swamps, steppes, and mountains), an overhauled guild vs. guild system, the crime and reputation system, a reworked item system, and randomly spawning resources.
Before that can happen, however, Albion will be wrapping up its current test phase. This beta is scheduled to shut down on July 17th, after which the servers will be wiped in preparation for the final beta.
