Good news for players excited by a mobile client for Albion Online: The game’s development team now has someone dedicated specifically to the game’s mobile version, starting with an in-depth exploration of the game’s UI and performance issues on mobile devices. That means offering a better UI meant to be used with a touchscreen interface, which means larger and clearer buttons, solutions for text and information presentation, and an easier HUD to use when staring at your phone or tablet.
This also means looking into support for various touch controls, including long presses, pinching, and the like to improve the UI functionality. In addition, the client will need to be optimized to deal with performance issues, especially when players on mobile are exploring heavily populated areas. If you’re a dedicated mobile fan, your feedback and thoughts are already welcomed on the official forum thread discussing these planned improvements; the plan is to make the game available on mobile stores next year.
