Albion Online is a sandbox MMORPG in a similar vein to Ultima Online. They are creating a game similar to that, but with a new modern twist on the formula.
Currently the game is in beta until mid July, then it will be offline while they add in the final changes, before heading into the final beta on August 1st.
Albion Online is a giant open sandbox and thanks to a system of “you are what you wear” you can truly transform yourself into anything you want, just by changing the clothes you are wearing. In this way you can be a farmer dealing with your crops, to a bad ass archer just by changing your clothes. Thus allowing any player to truly play however they want.
They will be adding in three new, bigger biomes (area’s) for the final beta, as well as a reputation system. In the reputation system, if you are not nice, that could hold consequences such as guards hassling you or even arresting you depending on your reputation.
When the Final Beta of Albion Online goes live, all accounts will be reset to zero, with all Founders getting the perks from their Founder’s Packs, as well as the gold bought through the website credited to their game account.
