Albion Online’s long-awaited Rise of Avalon update is live for all players today, and I promise I won’t make the joke about not needing roads this time – besides, you’re definitely going to want the roads added in this patch.
“This update brings numerous new features and improvements to the world of Albion. Foremost among these are the Roads of Avalon, a massive, shifting network of paths entered via gateways that spawn in the open world. The Roads of Avalon have three major components. They can be used for travel and transport, and to launch or escape attacks. The area outside the roads, known as the Wilderness of Avalon, offers a whole new realm to explore with treasures, resource sites, and new creatures. Additionally, smaller guilds looking for a home away from the politics and territory warfare of the Outlands can place Hideouts and live within the Roads of Avalon.”
As we’ve been covering this summer, there’s quite a bit more to the update too, including the new corrupted dungeons, new Avalonian loot, the PvE progression board overhaul, and quality-of-life tweaks for crafting, spells, and the UI. Check out the new trailer below!
