Albion Online, the popular fantasy sandbox MMORPG developed by Sandbox Interactive, announced today the launch of a new server for the Asia-Pacific region. Named “Albion East,” the new server will offer players in the region much faster connection speeds and optimized event times.
While the game remains free to play on both servers, players can purchase Founder Packs for early access to the Albion East server, full access to the closed beta in February, protection for existing character and guild names, and various in-game items including Gold, Premium, and exclusive limited-time Founder Vanity Items.
The new server will offer players a fresh start in the world of Albion with a new and untouched version of the game, where all players start on equal footing and can claim their own piece of the game world. The “Albion East” server will be fully separate and independent from the existing “Albion West” server, and offers greatly improved connection speeds and ping for the whole Asia-Pacific region.
In addition, timings of game and server events, such as territory battles, Crystal League, Faction Warfare, maintenance, etc., have been optimized for the region. Founders will also have the opportunity to participate in the closed beta and Beta Guild Season prior to the server launch, with accelerated Fame progression and early access to the full server launch, as well as the ability to reserve existing character and guild names.
