Albion Online is in the middle of a big revamp ahead of its beta later this summer — new weapons, new maps, new biomes. Today, Sandbox Interactive adds a retooled guild vs. guild system to that list — that’d be guild battles, 5v5 fights that allow groups to “fight and conquer territory around the world.”

The new system will include guild safe havens, watch towers, regional timers, retaliation attacks, counter attacks, declarations of war, siege camps, defender bonuses, and an improved GvG UI, all designed to make the mechanics less “flat.”

The studio expounds on how it all works in a new dev video below.
