Albion Online has been announced before 2 years by Sandbox Interactive and recently received much attention for its beautiful artwork, cross-platform experience across 5 platforms, and its MMORPG adventure. The open world game will be available for Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, and Android; and all players using any of these platforms can play with one another. Albion Online is all about sieging, conquering, and defending territories through a deep character customization system with classless combat, a fully player-driven economy, and interesting PvP battles. It can be best compared to the 2001 classic MMORPG by the name of Runescape if you are familiar with it.
The dangerous world presented is that of magic and sorcery in a medieval setting. Crafting is a huge part of the game, where you can create your own weapons and defences to protect your territory against other players. Team work is a huge element in the game because with the help of other players you can build cities and establish your own political systems. Who you choose to be as a character is entirely to you; you can be a mercenary, craftsman, farmer, trader, fighter, or anything you wish. If you are killed in the game you lose all your equipments and this is what will keep you fully conscious and thrilled. The main factions are composed of: Disciples of Morgana, The Heretics, Keepers of Albion, The Undead, and Demons of Hell.
We write about it today, 3 days before its Closed Beta starts on November 23rd, in order to notify you in case you wish to sign up. You can click here to sign up if interested. Interestingly, joining the Beta is not without cost and you are given 3 packs to choose from with the costs of: $29.95, $49.95, and $99,95. The higher the price, you get more premium status period and can access the Beta earlier. It is definitely a strange requirement for joining a Beta as we haven’t encountered such on a mobile game before.
To give credit, the game looks extremely beautiful and has a complex system, suggesting it will be a premium MMORPG like no other we have seen on the mobile platform. The payment part is perplexing considering it’s being tested but does give us an idea of how will the official game be priced. Nevertheless, it is a game that will be very popular due to its unique game mechanics and massive online world, so stay tuned with our website for more information on this game.
