Albion Online begins testing Knightfall’s midseason patch tomorrow – with WASD movement

Yesterday, Sandbox Interactive released patch notes for Albion Online Knightfall Midseason Patch, and it’s a dope with a long list of tweaks. When the test servers go live tomorrow, players can expect per-character caches in mob camps to stop chest stealing, a new Mists dungeon called Knightfall Abbey, new Brecilien standing items, a purchasable gender swap, a map for the Travel Mode, Easier Item Repair, Improved Chat Settings, Tons of UI Customizations, More Controller Functionality, Combat Balancing, and WASD Options for an otherwise isometric, multi-click game.

“[Experimental] Added new hotkeys for character movement: “Go Up”, “Go Down”, “Go Left”, “Go Right”. These optional hotkeys are unbound by default. Keyboard movement has been added by popular request, we look forward to your feedback on this fundamental implementation.”

Whether you’re motivated by rewards, a desire to properly test content (hah yes, right) or an eagerness to get a preview of Knightfall’s new content, the Public Tests scheduled for April 21st, have everything for you. Tests are conducted in 30-minute chunks spanning “several hours,” with 10-minute breaks in between. One of these stages will require players to team up with someone, so fans are urged to bring a friend.

As for the gold rewards above, 1,700 gold will be distributed to each of the top three players who collected the most valuable loot in each stage and the top three players who got the most PvP kills, followed by a 9,000 raffle Gold End of Trials. Entries to this prize draw will be given for each session testers attend and for completing tester surveys. Whatever your motivation, the next big content drop is just around the corner.
