While the wait will be over soon. The official release date of #AlbionOnline is merely two weeks away for Linux, Mac and #Windows. After five years of development and successful beta stages. Therefore July 17, 2017 will mark the beginning of a new #gaming era for Sandbox’ MMORPG. From that day on, there will be no more server wipes, and the history, economy and destiny of Albion will lie in the hands of the players. The developers of Sandbox Interactive are currently making final preparations before the big launch.

On July 9, 2017 at 10pm (CEST), the beta phase and thus the Founder c will end. The Founder Packs will no longer be available then. Interested gamers still have a week left to purchase such a Founder Pack to get their hands on exclusive goodies and content. Albion Online gamers who want to upgrade their existing Founder Pack should also visit the shop of the game by that date.
