Albion Online [Official Site], a pretty interesting MMO is releasing today with full Linux support and we will be livestreaming for the occasion.

Note: My key was personally purchased at the Epic level, with an upgrade to Legendary provided by Evolve PR. iAlwaysSin's key was provided directly by the Albion Online developer.

Here's when you can jump in:
  • 17th July, at 13:00 UTC: Legendary Founders and Legendary Starters
  • 18th July, at 13:00 UTC: Epic Founders and Epic Starters
  • 19th July, at 13:00 UTC: Veteran Founders and Veteran Starters

More info on how to get a Starter Pack and the timings are here. It's a buy to play game, with an entirely optional premium subscription which allows you to earn things a little quicker.

I have some really high hopes for this one, as I've enjoyed every moment I put into the Beta they had running. I just hope they continue to refine the experience. I feel it needs a lot more PvE content, as the game is built around PvP right now.

I will be making an official GOL guild, more info on that once it's actually made. You will probably be able to find out during the livestreams.

We still start a livestream at 1PM UTC/2PM BST and then for tonight's Ballistic Monday livestream, it will be the game we end on after some Team Fortress 2. Our Twitch page is here. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

I'm not much for grinding but truth to tell, most games are based on it. Click a few buttons kill an enemy, go to the next enemy and repeat...
I might give this game a spin depending on the quality of the live stream ;)

After many hours in Path of Exile via wine this weekend, I can't help but feel this would be a disappointment for me if I tried it right now.

By the way, if anyone has issues with Albion Online crashing on Fedora (or other "unsupported" distros), try using an unofficial Flatpak build from flathub.org:
flatpak --user remote-add --if-not-exists flathub https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo
flatpak --user install flathub com.albiononline.AlbionOnline

By then it might actually let you login. Sin is live right now, has been for over an hour. Took her 50+ minutes to login.

The website was down when I went to look at the starter pack pricing.
