Albion Online winds down beta, prepares for launch

With 250,000 backers supporting it and a team of 50 working on it, Albion Online is just about ready for its prime time debut. In two weeks, the cross-platform sandbox MMO will launch, bringing this Kickstarter project to full fruition.

The team notes that the beta program is going to end on July 9th, which also means that the founder’s packs will be pulled from digital sales at the same time. To entice more players to buy one of these packs, which range from $30 to $100, the amount of in-game gold assigned to each bundle has been increased by 10%.

Legendary pack holders will get to jump into Albion Online’s head start on July 17th, followed by epic pack holders on the 18th, and everyone else on the 19th. Get the producer’s update from the source after the break!

This game has been in Beta a long time. Im happy for them that they are getting it out. We need more good games on the market, its thin right now.

What a gorgeous game. And that User interface: Aaaaaaaahhh so beautiful! So decided to invest last night and gave it a first spin. Not going to play too much of course since they will reset everything before release, but first impressions are good! They should make the character creation version of the avatar higher poly though, then use the low poly for in-game. For someone who is a character creation junkie, that was a very off putting experience. Other than that, GORGEOUS!

Can they still not tell how much the goddamned game will cost at launch? Is this a big secret to sell more founder’s packs?

The Starter Packs will cost the same as the Founder Packs, but come with less content.

I actually can’t remember which version of the founder’s pack I have, it’s been so long since I hopped in the beta. I hope things are going to work out now that it’s being officially released, since there aren’t many games where you can actually play solely as a crafter/gatherer (and, in my opinion, still have fun).

I couldn’t remember either, but if you log into your account on their site you can look it up. (It turns out I’m an Epic Founder)

I like the game’s foundation enough to keep my eye on it, but there needs to be a lot more game here or people will quickly grow bored.
