The MMO 'Albion Online' releases today and we will be livestreaming

Posted by , | Views: 12,494
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.

I game on SteamOS in the living room but since this isn't available on Steam and I'm not inclined to hack around on the desktop I'll be waiting for the Steam version. Hopefully they'll have some PVE content by then too.

It's also available on Android! Wondering if anybody's tested that version. I have a Chromebook Pro - might give it a run over there.

Just installed in on the Samsung Chromebook Plus (sideload - I don't see it on the Google Play store accessible on the Chromebook) and wow! It runs very well given the hardware. I'm very impressed.

How much for extending a premium status?

I think it's $10 for 30 days of premium. You can also pay for it with in-game currency (gold), but I don't know how much yet. I can let you know when I get into the game later today.

I'm curious too! I started playing yesterday, didn't get too far though. But it would be great to start contributing to the guild right away =)

I wouldn't really buy this game tbh. It doesn't really look good at all (not just graphics, but gameplay/story wise).

Here is a part where streamers talked about it (I trust their opinion, that's why I want you guys check it out):
