Albion Online sets a date for Oberon, its next content blast: March 20

Albion Online’s next big thing has a name and a date: Oberon and March 20th. This round up content updates includes a full rebalance of gear unlocking, new mobs, new drops, new chests, new shrines, quality of life updates, and sizable additions to dungeons throughout the world, making the game seem a tad more Diablo than Shadowbane this time around.

Specifically, Sandbox Interactive is adding new randomly spawning hidden entrances for duneons, procedurally generated random dungeons to go with them, and dungeon maps for finding them. The maps are dropped by mobs, and their target dungeons spawn only when you get there, but of course, once you do get there, “the dungeon is fair game for all groups,” and this is a PvP game, so have a care.

Notably for new players, the studio is furbishing up its tutorial system.

Albion Online’s tutorial has been completely overhauled, providing new players with clearer guidance on the game’s systems and combat. This reworked and condensed onboarding, in addition to helping new players better learn how to navigate the world of Albion, will also bring them more quickly into higher-level play, benefiting veteran players as well.”

Hmm, other than the buy to play fee I havent spent anything on it. I just didnt like the direction they were going first to be honest and the fact the graphs were reminding runescape

Albion is a much prettier game than Runescape imo. I really enjoyed the time I spent in game but god it’s a gankfest.

Depends which runescape you compare it to. I do like it overall though since I like 2.5d graphs and assosiated camera angle. I picked around that it isnt as much as a gankfest as it used to be and want to try out and see in the near future

Personally I think its tutorial is fairly good compared to average sandbox game but any improvement is welcome

Yeah, I think the game is in an interesting place. I’m curious to see how they are getting people into higher level content quicker. The game is just so grind heavy it turns alot of people off.
