Albion Online: Game Improvements before the Closed Beta End

upalbion Date: Apr/23/16 09:04:41 Views: 1307

You know our goal is for Albion Online to be a long term success, therefore, we only want to release the game when it is truly up to its potential. The extension of the closed beta period will allow us to make significant improvements to the game.




When the game goes live, current founder's packs will be discontinued and replaced with starter packs, which will give full access to the game but offer less value for money than the founder's packs as this is only fair to all founders who help us in making the game. Of course, all founder's will automatically get full access to the game on release as well.


We are truly overwhelmed by the success of Albion Online thus far and would like to thank all of you for your ongoing support and feedback. Together, we will make sure that Albion Online will be a great game made to last.
