In celebration of Albion Online’s free-to-play launch, Sandbox Interactive has announced that they will add a massive expansion to Albion’s world soon. The Outland Expansion will add three new regions in total; Siluria (equivalent in size and value to Cumbria), and West and East Glouvia (equivalent in size and value to West and East Anglia, respectively).
Albion Online‘s upcoming new areas are intended to give new players a chance to claim land for themselves when they launch with GvG Season 6 in early May. A massive rework to the Outlands region is also planned to be added later this year that will further increase the world’s size.
The team behind the upcoming warfare sandbox MMO Conqueror’s Blade is heading to Berlin to take part in TwitchCon Europe. In celebration of the Streamfest, Conqueror’s Blade will be hosting an Open Weekend to which all players are welcome from across the world. This will be followed by a limited-access event that will continue the Open Weekend access for those who have pre-ordered the game.
Conqueror’s Blade’d gameplay consists of controlling medieval teams of dozens of powerful and varying troops from Eastern samurai to Western medieval knight of old in large-scale siege-like scenarios of over 1,000 troops in battle. The game takes inspiration from ancient Eastern and Western civilizations and warfare.
The team behind Black Desert Online has announced that the game’s ‘Shadow Arena’, its first and only Battle Royale Mode will be taken down on April 10th. The short-lived PvP mode was first introduced back in January and had originally been planned to have continuous updates to keep it fresh and enjoyable.
The team states that the focus on new updates was deviating from their original direction partly due to the time being put on developing the Shadow Arena mode. Closing Shadow Arena was ultimately the option chosen instead of making partial improvements.
