Sandbox Interactive has shared some more information on the new biomes heading to Albion Online as the Final Beta draws ever closer. They begin with the steppes, taking a closer look at the biomes and what players will be able to expect.
Each of the biomes will contain three different resources; One main, one common, and one rare. The steppes, respectively, will contain Hide, Fiber, and Ore.
As this biome has Hide as its main resource, it features a total of eight unique hide mobs that will drop Tier 1 to Tier 8 Hides. Here is a list of each:
- Tier 1: Marmot
- Tier 2: Impala
- Tier 3: Moa Bird
- Tier 4: Giant Stag
- Tier 5: Terror Bird
- Tier 6: Rhinoceros
- Tier 7: Mammoth
- Tier 8: Ancient Mammoth
In addition to these Hide mobs, special creature mobs also appear in the steppes. These are deeply connected to the world of Albion, and drop resources specific to their biome. Here’s a list of those in the steppes:
- Tier 3: Cougar
- Tier 5: Sabretooth Tiger
- Tier 7: Mature Sabretooth Tiger
As the Beta progresses, Sandbox Interactive states that players will be able to use several of these new mobs as mounts.
The steppes will, depending on where players are in the world, look different as well. Tier 1-4 clusters will be green steppes, while Tier 5 and 6 will be red and Tier 7 and 8 will be dead steppes. This allows players to be aware of the danger they are in, based on the map’s look.
