Albion Online officially launched!

Berlin: July 17, 2017
It's done! The sandbox MMORPG Albion Online from Berlin has officially launched today! Owners of a Legendary Founder or Starter Pack can immediately start playing. The first adventurers have already arrived at the shores of the starter islands, ready to write the history of Albion.

The developers at Sandbox Interactive were working on the project for five years and intensely tested and improved the game during the beta phase. "We are very proud to officially launch Albion Online after this intense time. We want to thank our awesome community that remained loyal to us all this time and constantly provided us with feedback. Now, things will really get going, and we're excited to see how the world of Albion Online will develop and what kind of stories our players will write", says Stefan Wiezorek, CEO of Sandbox Interactive. 

It's now the time to explore an enormous world and take part in shaping it. Thanks to the classless system of Albion Online, there are no limits to the imagination – the abilities of player characters are solely defined by their equipment. 

In the world of Albion, players with a knack for fighting have countless opportunities to demonstrate their skills. Dungeons with powerful PvE opponents and other players in intense PvP or Guild vs. Guild battles create ever new challenges for adventurers.

Gatherers and crafters use the elaborate economic system of Albion Online, which is completely in the hands of the players. All items and buildings in the game are crafted or built by adventurers. Those who are smart at producing or trading, can make a fortune since supply and demand determine the market price.

Different start times for players:

In order to have more control of the server load during the launch phase, players are granted access to Albion Online at different times in the next two days, which depend on the players' Starter or Founder Packs: 

All information on the various start times and the Starter Packs can also be found here:

What is Albion Online?

Albion Online is a sandbox MMORPG from Sandbox Interactive, set in the medieval fantasy world of Albion. Whether playing a hardened fighter, a farmer, a merchant or a master craftsman, in the player-driven world every single weapon and every single building is created by the players. Thanks to a "you are what you wear" system free of typical class restrictions, a skilled archer can instantly become a powerful mage, and the players define their own role within the game world. PvE, PvP or the battle guild vs guild, every action in the game has a meaning … as well as consequences. PvP battles in the danger zones of the game world are a "winner takes it all" affair. Albion Online is the first PC game to enable the exact same experience on tablets.
