Sandbox Interactive has unleashed the Cador update to Albion Online that brings a number of big changes to the game including a overhauled UI, new bosses and dungeons. The PvE content centers on the Heretics faction with dungeons and bosses themed around the same. Content is available for both single players and groups.
PvP and PvE players will also be challenged to more strategic game play with the addition of the new death mechanic that brings the 'knock down' system on board that gives players the opportunity to revive themselves by slowly regenerating health. Successfully reviving sees a return to battle on the spot, though it is still possible for enemies to slay the player prior to gaining enough hit points to rise.
Finally, armor classification is now in the game. Categories include Light armor (cloth), Medium armor (leather) and Heavy armor (plate) that allow players more freedom in the way they choose to play.
20+ new spells and a portable gear repair kit allowing for longer mob grinding trips have also been added. In addition a new fame bonus mechanic balances risk and reward: venturing into the dangerous PvP zones will grant fame bonuses.
