My fellow Albion Online fans, we have a date for the game’s next big thing: The Lands Awakened update is coming on November 24th. Sandbox Interactive has been teasing the release for a while now with dev videos and explainers, but now we’ve got the whole outlook in one place.
“On November 24, 2021, the Lands Awakened update goes live. This update improves and expands nearly every aspect of Albion’s open world: reworked open-world dungeons with limited-time events and exits in multiple zones, as well as open-world mobs that increase in power and value over time, offer substantial rewards to those who venture into unexplored zones. All five biomes have been overhauled with massively improved visuals and updated terrains and layouts, bringing new depth and vibrancy to exploration, travel, and gathering, and an expanded soundtrack with new city, Hideout, Tutorial, and Destiny Board themes, as well as numerous new combat cues, adds excitement and emotion to the world.”
Players can also look forward to the brand-new War Gloves weapon line – yes, a new weapon skill that everyone can use – new elite combat levels, improvements to combat fame progression, better treasure sites, new open-world objectives, improved guild seasons, regearing loadouts, farming with less clicking (they heard my pleas!), and clarity for crafting fees.
And hey, if you’re planning to play now rather than wait, make sure you check out the monthly challenges for subbers, which includes the pest lizard mount in November.
