Developer gives an outlook on the agriculture of the Sandbox MMO

In search of rare raw materials for weapons and other Genesten the heroes are exposed in Albion Online constant dangers. In addition to monsters and wild animals, it is above all other players who are looking after their own lives and the laboriously mined resources. How nice that players with the new farming feature will receive a relaxing and useful compensation for the exhausting PvP battles in the future.



Strong Effect


Through agriculture, players can produce various foods and potions that provide them with helpful buffs. Developer Sandbox Interactive provides them with pastures for livestock and fields for growing crops.


Pure vegetable and animal good


Farming in Albion Online involves growing vegetables and grains as well as livestock. Players cultivate crops such as tomatoes, potatoes, corn or pumpkins by ordering their fields with the appropriate seeds. When the time is right, the harvest can be processed into food and drink and eaten or used as animal feed.


In order for a young animal to become a large livestock, it must be fed and fattened. Goats, chickens or cows are ready for rearing. A full-grown animal can be slaughtered and its meat processed. However, the animals should not be hastily deprived of their virtual destiny, as they supply the players next to meat with other foods such as eggs or milk. Players can either consume or process these animal products directly, for example by baking a tasty cake.


Buffs for every occasion


To make a potion or a dish, the agricultural products are processed in one of the new Farming buildings. In the mill, hungry heroes can grind their grain into flour, the butcher processes the slaughter cattle into meat, the alchemist brews potions, and the chef allows players to prepare many delicious dishes from their ingredients. Meals such as meat pies, cakes, carrot soup or goat kebabs will strengthen players after the battle and help them regenerate. Potions of the Alchemist provide valuable benefits already during the fight, but are provided with a cooldown.
