  • Hi everyone, apologies for the unexpected downtime. It looks like we'll be able to bring the game back at the end of the regular downtime period at around 11 UTC. We'll keep you posted if there are any updates.

  • Quote from FriendlyFoe: “Again they screwed small guilds, all content is for the big guilds, small guilds and solo players please quit the game right now because SBI don't care 85% of its players, meaning small guilds and solo players. They only make content for big guilds. Big alliances. Does not matter that big guilds already have their maps and territorys, almost all the content in the game is for them. Now they make HQ hideouts also for the big guilds. If you there in SBI want to make HQ hid…

  • Hi everyone, I’m here to provide a quick update on our development progress and what you can look forward to in the coming weeks and months! In our last roadmap update we gave you a first insight into our plans for Albion’s next Content Update. We announced that we’re planning to renew Open World gameplay in Albion Online, and since then, we’ve been working hard on making those plans become a reality. Soon we’ll be ready to begin sharing our progress in a new set of devtalks! Next to these plann…

  • Hi everyone, apologies for the late follow up, last week was a busy week! As many of you will have seen, we've included significant additional changes to Hellgates in Patch 4 as a result of this discussion. If you haven't seen them, Patch 4 patchnotes have been released for the Testserver including the additional changes: Testserver Patch Notes - Call to Arms Patch 4 In addition to the planned significant loot boosts, this patch now includes a guaranteed chest at the end of each gate , to ensure…

  • Hey everyone, thanks for your thoughts and feedback on these changes! We've taken a very close look at what you've written here today to see how we can improve. Some of the improvements you suggested are actually already part of our next patch, such as resetting cooldowns when entering a new Hellgate or when being invaded. Other suggestions, such as a guaranteed reward chest at the end of the Hellgate, we've evaluated closely and are now trying to find a way to get them into a patch as soon as p…

  • Hello everyone, With the launch of the Call to Arms update, we've upgraded the underlying Albion Online game engine version. In addition to providing a more optimized development process, this update should greatly improve some aspects of the game's performance, particularly a reduction of micro-stutters during gameplay. At the same time, there are potential new issues which come with any new technology. We will continue to monitor the game's post-update performance and make any necessary adjust…

  • Hi everyone, its really hard to estimate how many people will be responding to playtests like this- we were far more successful than anticipated in mobilizing the Albion playerbase. Thank you for that! We've already collected lots of interesting technical data that helps us fix bugs before a release. We're also considering running another test once those issues have been adressed, and we'll be sure to boost up the test servers even further to allow for more players if we do.

  • Dear Albion Community, As you might have read in the news, Sandbox Interactive will be joining Stillfront in January 2021. Stillfront consists of a family of game studios that largely work independently, while sharing knowledge and expertise between them to support each other. For the past eight years, we have been building Albion Online up completely on our own - everything from development, to marketing, translations, customer support has been built up by ourselves. Now that Albion is growing …

  • Quote from VLAN: “Also, this does not just affect the forums, passwords are linked to both game accounts and website. This needs to be directed as a full DB breach, and not downplayed as a "small forum data breach". Shame. ” Hi there, we're not trying to downplay this incident in any way. However, we feel it is important to note that only users registered in the forum are affected by this breach. That number is only roughly 5% of the total number of Albion Online users. 95% of Albion Online user…

  • Quote from Cessari: “Quote from VLAN: “Quote from Wydoyolo: “1. What was the cause of the breach? 2. Do you monitor 0days? For 3rd party software. 3. Do you have cybersecurity officer at SBI or you using outsourcing services? 4. What are your plans to avoid situations like this in the future? ( Forum software should be updated immediately after CVE/hotfix release) 5. When can we expect 2FA (tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6238) commonly used solution to be implemented? ” I'm going to second this line of …

  • Quote from SkylighterHK: “I found that I have to change the game password as well. Am I correct? ” Yes- please update your Albion account password by scrolling to the bottom of albiononline.com/en/profile/.

  • Quote from Robinhoodrs: “Aren't the forum passwords the same as the log-in passwords for the game though? ” Yes- please update your Albion account password by scrolling to the bottom of albiononline.com/en/profile/.

  • Quote from Cessari: “Quote from Wydoyolo: “Please implement 2FA. ” This. 2FA (Two-Factor Auth) is already used on a lot of platforms, and is (in my experience) not that intensive to implement. Having 2FA on all of your services going forward would be a huge boost in the communities trust of SBI and Albion Online as a game. EDIT: the security code message you get when you log on to an account in-game for the first time doesn't count as full 2FA. ” Hi Cessari, thanks for your feedback. We will inv…

  • Hey everyone, we did not consciously make any changes to dungeon loot. The introduction of corrupted dungeons should not make a difference, since loot from the black market is not reserved for a particular kind of content. Instead it is dropped wherever people are active (obviously scaled to the value of the activity). Please note that this question gets asked after every update we make. This is due to perception bias: out of hundreds of thousands of players, it is normal that a certain percenta…

  • Hi all, Our test to restrict the power of alliances has been running for a little over a month now, and it's time to give you an update on our findings and next steps. Test Summary In order to restrict the power of top-end alliances, we introduced a set of measures (LINK) on 26th of February. These measures have been effective in the sense that they caused the top-end alliances to split into multiple smaller groups & lone guilds. The impact on top-end alliances was similar to the impact we would…

  • Dear Albion community, Its finally time to share our plans beyond the Queen update with you! With the last update we brought a revolution to Albion’s Outland gameplay. Now we’re turning our attention to a super important, often overlooked aspect of Albion Online: solo and small group gameplay. With the next content update, we’re planning to reveal the Roads of Avalon. forum.albiononline.com/index.p…e98d9613aa8114c7c1d99714b These mystical paths through the mists form an ever-shifting network of …

  • Hey everyone, we're currently investigating why some portion of the player base (seems to be mostly players connecting from the United States and Canada) is experiencing these network issues at this time. UPDATE: issues should be resolved by now
