First off im very excited about Crowfall because it doesn't look like another casual trash themepark MMO which a lot of people here absolutely despise. But I'm suprised a lot of people here do not know about Albion Online.
For those of you who don't know, Albion Online is a full-loot hardcore sandbox MMORPG planning on a free to play release later this year. It is currently in alpha testing, with an alpha test starting January 26th. I am planning to play Crowfall beta during the downtime of Albion Online but I just want to expose this game here because a lot of people here share the same gaming taste and will love this game.
Here are some of the game's features that I copy pasta'd from their website: (website link is here https://albiononline.com/
Full Player-Driven Economy – All items and buildings in Albion Online are crafted by and bartered between players. Craft the best items and decide which price to sell them to other players at. No global marketplace means savvy players can make an industry of transporting goods to different markets around the world. Expanded PvP System – Take part in massive open PvP battles and fight for the fame and honor of your guild. Don’t want to tie yourself down to anyone? Then why not become a feared, volatile mercenary, riding out into battle for others – for the right price. Classless Character Customization – Be exactly who you want to be. With no class-restricted abilities or items, you are what you wear in Albion Online. Craft any number of combinations of spells onto your gear, then mix and match to create your perfect character with hundreds of different combinations possible. Want to be a healing wizard with tank-like armor and a mace in your main hand? It makes sense! Every combination will have its strengths and weaknesses, so experiment and find your true self! Territory-based Guild Warfare – Find a loyal band of brothers and sisters and claim your patch of Albion – build your cities and camps out of over 50 different kinds of buildings and customizable skins, then wage war on your neighbors to oust them from their homes and expand your very own empire. Cross Platform & One Massive World – The first true cross-platform MMO experience. Had enough of being glued to your PC when you game? Grab your iOS or Android tablet and pick up right where you left off, experiencing all the action from your sofa. In Albion Online, all players on every device play on one master server, in one massive world. The only question is – how will you play?
