We’ve long wanted to expand Faction Warfare into a major activity for players of all levels. We want players without large guilds to experience the excitement of massive battles, while also allowing maintaining Faction Warfare as a valuable and rewarding activity for experienced players.

With these changes, we think Faction Warfare will become the perfect way for new Albion players to get their first experience of large-scale warfare, while offering a deep and interesting activity for veteran players who don’t have an Outlands guild or want to enjoy large-scale warfare even when their guild is not currently fighting.
Hellgates are an integral feature of Albion Online, letting players participate in high-stakes PvP in a challenging but balanced battleground. Hellgates were developed during the Alpha phase of Albion Online, and it's finally time to give them the attention they deserve.

I hope you’re as excited about these major improvements to Faction Warfare and Hellgates as we are – we’ll share more details as development continues.
In the meantime, you can look forward to our upcoming Play Store beta as well as major changes for Season 11 (including updates to Season Point scoring and the Outlands map) which we’ll cover in an upcoming Dev Talk.
Thanks for watching!
