The Albion Online team looked back on their 2020 in a recent post as they looked at the various content and feature releases for the MMO.

The look back began by touching on the Queen Update which was the largest content release since the game’s 2017 launch. The Queen Update brought with it new outlands, hideouts, open-world territory battles, the Crystal League, elite dungeons, Avalonian armor, and wardrobe skins.

Of course, the COVID-19 pandemic dominated 2020 which saw the game experience an increase in player numbers as everyone began to quarantine and play games. The team also began working from home.

Summer saw anniversaries, updates, and a new tournament. These updates included the Roads of Avalon, Corrupted Dungeons, Avalonain weapons, Chinese and Korean language support, and more. Fall saw the Brimstone & Mist update, improvements to the mobile version of the game, and a continually growing player population.

As to what’s ahead in 2021, the team teases some big things,

“Faction Warfare will be completely reworked, offering new activities, rewards, and fair and challenging large-scale battles for beginner and veteran players alike. Hellgates will also be completely re-envisioned, with varied layouts, challenging PvE, rebalanced PvP, and a new 10-versus-10 mode, while Loadouts will allow players to save their favorite gear combinations for re-gearing and Marketplace purchases.”
