Albion Online’s second Oberon patch hits the test server as the game preps free-to-play


The second Oberon patch has gone live on Albion Online’s test server, bringing changes to portals and balance adjustments as the game prepares to make the jump to free-to-play. The bulk of the changes in the new patch are to portals, which are being shuffled around so that Fort Sterling, Lynnhurst, Thetford, and Bridgewatch will each have two portal exits, while Martlock will have three, and Caerleon will retain four. In addition, each of the four royal cities — Fort Sterling, Thetford, Martlock, and Bridgewatch — has received its own Outland portal.

On top of that, the Adventurer’s Challenge system has received a couple of changes. Daily bonuses will now reward players with a Tome of Insight. In addition, when the game goes free-to-play on April 10th, free players will also be able to complete the daily challenges, earning 10 learning points for doing so, though weekly and monthly bonus rewards will remain limited to premium players.

Meanwhile, on the live servers, guilds across the world are gearing up for the beginning of the game’s sixth GvG season, which kicks off on April 20th. The season will run until the 13th of July, with two mid-season resets on May 18th and June 15th. It’s worth noting that GvG scores after the second reset are doubled, making the final month of the season especially crucial. If you want to read up on all of the details to make sure you and your guild are prepared to take on the competition, you can find them over on the game’s official forums.

I play off and on and its definitely a group oriented game in the same vein as Eve, smaller scale of course. There are 4 zone types, blue, yellow, red, and black with black being player controlled territory with the best loot. Without a guild you wont make it past yellow no matter how good you are at the moba style combat. There is political tensions, big personalities, edating drama, and everything else you would expect from a game with controllable territory. Know all this before going in, a theme park mmo this is not.


Yes like EVE too you got to buy some materials since its too hard to get them on your own if your guild doesnt control a null sec area

Really looking forward to playing this to see what all the fuss was about when it first came out :-)


I have installed it and will give it a fair second chance. It had disappointed me on launch but they seem they had been improving on the right direction
