About Albion Online

Albion Online is a sandbox MMORPG from Sandbox Interactive, set in the medieval fantasy world of Albion. Whether playing a hardened fighter, a farmer, a merchant or a master craftsman, in the player-driven world every single weapon and every single building is created by the players. Thanks to a "you are what you wear" system free from typical class restrictions, a skilled archer can instantly become a powerful mage, allowing players to define their own roles within the game world. Whether PvE, PvP or guild vs guild, every action in the game has a meaning… as well as consequences, as PvP battles in the danger zones of the game world are a "winner takes all" affair.
