Albion Online has just released the Wild Blood update, introducing some new additions and improvements to Albion’s world.
The Wild Blood update adds shapeshifter weapons, tracking, awakened weapons, new and reworked potions, among other things.
Shapeshifter Weapons are a brand-new Staff weapon line which allow players to transform into fantastical beasts mid-combat, which expands on the possibilities of combat builds.
Tracking, meanwhile, is a new activity in which these same creatures can be hunted across the open world by groups.
These hunts will take you along unexpected paths, but success can reward you with rare, magical artifacts and ingredients.
The ingredients gained through Tracking can be used to craft seven new potions and Shapeshifter Artifact Weapons, while potions can now be enchanted to new levels.
Meanwhile, Awakened Weapons can be attuned with unique combinations of traits, allowing the bearer to wield immense strength. These weapons may be lost in combat, of course, but their traits will live on, telling their story and that of their owners.
Additional Improvements such as new farming bonuses for each of these biomes encourage trade across Albion and economic specialization.
Randomized Dungeons have expressive new visuals too, along with reworked layouts and some colossal new enemies you may encounter.
There’s also a new Death Recap that lets players go over their recent combat defeats, to hone their skills before returning to the fray.
Albion Online and the While Blood Update is available on Windows, macOS, Linux, iOS, and Android.
