Albion Online Will Begin The Breath of Winter Event In January
Sandbox Interactive is kicking off the new year with a spectacular winter event in Albion Online. From January 10, 2018 winter will spread its white blanket over the world of the sandbox MMORPG when the “Breath of Winter” Event commences with a series of exclusive activities and rewards.
The event will feature a unique, event-related quest chain, a new PvP battlefield, a winterly version of the famous “Three Sisters” expedition, special rewards, and much more. All activities and rewards will be available exclusively during the Breath of Winter Event, so players can look forward to an exciting winter season.
Breath of Winter Features:
Good Deeds: Winter is the perfect opportunity to do something good. “Good Deeds” is a quest chain that leads the players all around the Royal Continent. In every royal city, they have opportunities to do good deeds and thus progress in their quest. As a reward, they can look forward to an exclusive winter mount – the Yule Ram.
Icy Battleground: The “Icy Battleground” is a new PvP battlefield that is only accessible during the Breath of Winter Event. It is a frost-covered battlefield following yellow unrestricted PvP rules and featuring regular chest spawns.
Tokens and Rewards: “Breath of Winter” comes with limited-time rewards that are only available during this event: Two vanity armor sets, new furniture items and more can be purchased from the respective vanity merchant in the major cities using snowballs, the event currency. Snowballs may not only be used for purchases, players can also throw them in other adventurers’ faces!
Time to go Home: This is a time-limited event that is accompanied by Yule Stag raffles. Uncle Frost wants to prepare his departure since winter is going to be over soon. But his wife, the Ice Queen, sees no reason for departure yet and wants to stay in her castle. Uncle Frost is now asking the players to help him persuade his wife to go with him and make way for spring. The players must enter the icy keep, avoid traps and artillery fire and avoid the Keepers loyal to the Ice Queen in order to take her to her husband.
