Albion Online Game Director Robin Henkys and Creative Director Jörg Friedrich have posted their first dev vlog. In it, they give an overview of what’s coming in the Cador update, including a death mechanics overhaul. The devs also took a moment to explain their population goals during the testing process, telling forumgoers that the test population is “very stable” in recent weeks and “more than sufficient.”
“On top of that, population numbers are not a focus for us right now. We are not doing any marketing or sales at the moment, as we want to reserve that for when we believe the game is where it should be. That’s why we are also very comfortable with some people taking a break from the game right now – in particular, with the future wipe looming in the air. You can expect our next traffic and player re-activation push to be around the time of the next wipe, which is still some time off. This will already feature the first version of our new game world, and of course tons and tons of new features, content and improvements.”
