The latest update to Albion Online finally adds the PvP gameplay the game was always meant to be about. What, you’re saying PvP was always there? No, you misunderstand; the game didn’t want to have a focus on player vs. player, it was meant to be player vs. pisces. Yes, fishing is arriving with the game’s Lancelot update, and it features all the full-loot gameplay you could ask for. Engage in a battle of wits with a tube of meat using a rusty hook on a cord, then look everything the fish is carrying (e.g., meat).
We can rest reasonably assured, however, that the new tier 3 artifact armor that’s coming with this update will not be tied to effectively fighting with fish. Nor will the new luxury goods or mini-hellgates be connected with fish. Those are just other nice features coming along with the patch when it launches on March 12th. And hey, who knows, maybe those hellgates actually do lead to great fishing spots. Kill people over fishing! Why not, right?
