Albion Online Guide

As the Albion East expansion has attracted an unprecedented number of players , our team has been diligently working on the upcoming major update, dubbed Knightfall. In this Developer Discussion, Game Director Robin Henkys presents some of the enhancements and additions that this update will bring.

The Mists: Fresh Additions

The Mists will see the introduction of three new gameplay elements:

  • Caches: a unique type of chest located in Mob Camps, offering individual rewards for each player who achieves the objective
  • Coffers: akin to open-world treasures but only disclose their position to nearby players
  • Knightfall Abbey: a novel dungeon category within the Mists, to be discussed in a future Developer Discussion
