It’s been a long time coming, but Sandbox Interactive’s cross-platform sandbox MMORPG Albion Online has officially launched. Those who own Legendary Founder’s Packs can now jump into the game and begin working their way up the ladder, crafting items and conquering both PvE and PvP challenges. Epic Founders will be able to join in tomorrow, while those who purchased a Veteran Founder’s Pack won’t be able to join in until Wednesday.
Albion Online is a sandbox MMORPG that is characterized by the amount of freedom that it gives players. The game features a player-driven economy and a class system that is based on what your character is wearing. The game’s vendors sell player-made items and players can run their own storefronts. Guilds war over land in territorial warfare. There’s even a housing system, albeit one that requires players to bid on their house at auction every so often.
Unfortunately, there are reports that the servers have been down at various points throughout the day, taking away from the valuable head start that was given to those who purchased Legendary Founder’s Packs. With any luck, they will be up and running smoothly in time for Legendary Founders to enjoy said head start.
