Lancelot is still raging hard over at Albion Online. The March 12th content update received a midseason patch this week, bringing players a new guild vs. guild training map and other cool features.
One of the major selling points of the patch is a re-spec ability, which allows players to switch over to different types of gear. “This feature gives players who really want to switch a chance to do so without starting from zero, but the costs involved should ensure players don’t constantly change gear on a whim,” the devs said.

Dual Universe is only in pre-alpha, but players have already made their mark in its virtual galaxy. JC Baille, founder of developer Novaquark, tells me that there’s only about 3,000 players who have access to the ambitious sci-fi MMO a day or two a week. During that time, they’ve constructed cities, erected temples, and, yes, built a McDonalds and a Subway. Because even space colonists need a sando now and again.

A lot has happened in the Gloria Victis development over the last few months. One of the most important changes, crucial for the game’s open world PvP and non-target combat formula, is the recently applied huge synchronization & controller update.

Piloting Mechanics revamp
We heard you. The previous piloting mechanics excessively relied on vertical boosters to leave a planet’s atmosphere and enter space. That wasn’t what we had in mind for these engines. Our goal is to have a set of engines that will cover different use cases so that specialized ships can be built depending on what type of mission is required. We have worked on a revamp of the engines, adding new ones such as the rocket boosters you saw in the DualX video, and redefining others. That includes Wing Elements, Anti-Gravity Generators, and lots of exciting new gameplay to experiment with! We will release a dedicated blog article with more detail about this very soon so that we can collect your feedback ahead of the launch.
