Winter Alpha Update #4 - The End!
So Albion Online's Winter Alpha closed with a bang yesterday evening, as players participated in a developer-run event, before the world fell into chaos and demons came to harvest the souls of Albion, ready for a whole new world in the next alpha!
Players had the chance to participate in Sandbox Interactive's end-of-test event, following cryptic clues to rescue the victims of a brazen kidnapping, and save the world!
The winners of the event were Layzr, Sargon, Sivveen, Labatt, and Wreckn, alongside other members of [ACE] Horse Riders. Their prize for winning was a super cool set of undead armour, never before seen in the game, and a truly unique staff, specially made for the event, which allowed them to spawn some of Albion's nastiest mobs at will. With these, they set to bringing about the end of the world, just in time for servers to go down at 21:00 CET.
Well done to Horse Riders, and thanks to everyone else who participated!
The Toed Bear: Community-Led Event
Veteran guild Hammer & Sickle also organised an event, centered on a convoy transporting precious cargo across the world. Players were invited to gear up and attack the convoy in an attempt to claim the treasures it protected. Some awesome PvP battles ensued! Props to Hammer & Sickle for organising this great event! Check out their video of the action below:
As servers were finally brought down, rankings were decisive, with some clear victors all round for this alpha!
Well done to all of our winners and runners-up!
And now onto the next!
With one alpha at an end, the team at Sandbox Interactive is jumping straight back in to working to build a new version ready for our Legendary and Epic founders in the summer! Many thanks to everyone who participated in this test, your feedback will help us make Albion Online the game we all want it to be.
