Second Albion Online Expansion Since Launch Announced

The second Albion Online expansion since the game launched just 5 short months ago has been revealed. The expansion is called Kay and it will introduce innovations in Guild vs Guild battles and Territory Raids along with much more when it launches on December 6th.

In Kay, Sandbox Interactive is introducing a season mode to Guild vs Guild, with the first season beginning on December 9th and running for three months. During this time players collect points with their guild for successfully holding resource territories and conquering enemy territories. Whichever guild has the most points in the end, will see their guild emblem flying in Caerleon for the duration of the next season. Players will also earn currency to unlock exclusive items and battle mounts.

Along with the changes to Guild vs Guild Kay will introduce modifications to territory raids. These modifications will allow guilds to directly fight the energy-gathering mages of their opponents. That way, they can weaken the enemy, deprive them of valuable energy which they can purchase new weapons or items with, and in addition gain big points for the season rating.

Of course, this isn’t all you’ll see in the Albion Online expansion. It has an extended tutorial, a new expedition, hardcore expeditions, and enhancements to game performance, along with much, much more. If you’re interested in the full list of features that Kay will introduce to Albion Online you can read more on the Albion Online official website.

With just a week until the expansion releases now is a fantastic time to start getting your guild prepared for the battles to come. Or you can take part in the test run of the new season mode for GvG which begins tonight and runs through December 4th. This short trial will go through all the phases of the season in just a few short days.
