Over the past few hours, with an announcement that surprised everyone (positively), Sandbox Interactive has officially announced that its Albion Online fantasy-themed MMORPG will go free to play over the next month and, more specifically, starting from April 10th .
All those who have already purchased the game will be able to benefit from some small bonuses, summarized by the words of the developers that we report to you, translated below:
“Starting next April 10, everyone will be able to join the ranks of our vast community of adventurers in exploring the world of Albion, on all platforms, for free and without any limitations.
For our veteran players, we have an exclusive thank you gift: the incredible Specter Wolf mount . Specter Wolf has all the statistics of a Direwolf but with peculiar phantasmal features and only those accounts that will have an active Founder or Starter Pack redeemed by April 10th at 10:00 UTC will be qualified to obtain it.
In addition to this, there will be a 10-day Fame boost period that will start immediately after the scheduled maintenance for April 1st and will end with the next 10th maintenance. The “Mist of Albion” buff will be active, giving to players a 25% Fame bonus obtained through in-game activities (with the exclusion of Fame obtained from Tomi), so don’t miss this huge opportunity to unlock new equipment and improve your stats.
For all those who do not yet own the game but want to join it immediately, we are offering a 34% discount on all the bundles available until April 10th, which will give you instant access to the game, a conspicuous haul in Gold currencies and Premium and access to the Specter Wolf mount once the game is switched to free to play. This will be the last chance to get the Starter Pack before it is abandoned next April 10. “
In the meantime, in order to give you the chance to get a better idea of the game, here is the official trailer for Oberon, which is the latest content released by the development team on the game servers.
Good vision! (and welcome to Albion Online in the world of Free-to-Play MMORPGs)
