Albion Online presents The Laborers
With less than three weeks left before the Closed Beta of the cross-platform sandbox MMORPG Albion Online, Sandbox Interactive shares a new video showcasing one of the latest’s features in the game - hireable resource gatherers called ‘Laborers’.
Since nearly everything that players build or craft requires some kind of resource, the gathering process plays a crucial role in Albion’s heavily player-driven economy. The newly introduced non player characters, Laborers, not only help players with resource collection, they bring a purpose to the whole housing concept.
There are a few types of Laborers including gatherers, crafters and a mercenary available to choose from according to one’s play style. After settling labourers in either a house or a guild hall, players acquire from them a profession-related journal in order to fill it in with notes for labourers to follow while performing their tasks. The more tasks labourers finish, the more proficient they become, which in turn means they become more demanding. In order to keep them content, players need to provide them with appropriate furniture and house decorations. After all, a happy labourer is a productive one!
