Albion Online final beta start times revealed

Posted by , | Views: 6,044


The indie MMO Albion Online is due to have the final beta version and they have revealed when each supporter will get access.

- Legendary Founders will have immediate access to Final Beta on August 1
- Epic Founders (like me) will be able to join on August 2, at 12:00 UTC
- Veteran Founders can hop on the live server on August 3, at 12:00 UTC

Still, I would only suggest buying it if you want to help test, as there will be a wipe before the official release:

@gamingonlinux At the end of the Final Beta, directly before official launch

What's coming in the final beta?
- New World: Royal Continents and The Outlands
- Biomes: Swamps, Steppes and Mountains
- New Powerful Artifact Weapons, Off-Hands and Armor Sets
- Reworked Guild vs. Guild Battles
-New Reputation and Crime System
- Reworked Destiny Board
- and more!

I am excited to check out what it's like, as I haven't played it for months. I still won't put too much time into it before the official release as I'm not wanting to lose a lot of progress.

Meh, I will 'lose out' about a week and a half due to my holidays (and no, I can't play during my holidays).

But I am excited! Any chance for a GOL guild?

When the game is officially out, I will likely make an official GOL guild, but no point until the official release as it's all wiped in a few months.

oh freaking sweet. this is something I'll have to try my best to make some time for. It's been awhile since I've played an MMO. Played Guild Wars 2 from release day up until early 2014. I had a blast with the WvW style pvp, even though it really became more of a Zergfest. I was in a guild called Zombieland and then moved to the Shadow Gypsies when ZL broke up. Good times!

Would really like to take part in a GOL guild. this game seems like it will be a good GvG game. I'll probably wait until it's closer to final release though. to many games and not enough time right now :/ good times for Linux users though

I wonder how long the "final beta" will be. Like when the final wipe will be, maybe a few more months? I'm a veteran founder and even my wife is showing some interest in it (she runs Linux too). Would definitely be cool to have a GoL guild going once the game is live.

They said the beta starts between 1 and 3 august depending on your pledge, will last for 3 months, then /wipe. So i guess around october/november 2016 we can start playing "for real".
