Albion Online: Impressive Beta-Statistics

Media Alert – for immediate release

Berlin, April ##, 2017 – With a set of new data, Sandbox Interactive provides interesting insight into the statistics around Albion Online. The numbers published are extremely up-to-date, based on data gathered since the Galahad update that was implemented four weeks ago. Galahad was the most comprehensive update of the sandbox MMORPG so far and included lots of changes and innovations. That's why the data gathered between March 13 and April 9, 2017 should be interesting and impressive for both developers and players alike.

In this period of time, for example, the currently 212,815 founders from 164 countries played over 2.8 million hours, harvested almost 512 million resources, erected 178,477 buildings and farmed 13.1 million carrots. The tragic aspect: 124,179 deceased player characters in PvP mode stand against 850,811 killed rabbits. It seems the players are truly ready for the official start of the game on July 17, 2017.

What is 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 of typical class restrictions, a skilled archer can instantly become a powerful mage, and the players define their own role within the game world. PvE, PvP or the battle guild vs guild, every action in the game has a meaning … as well as consequences. PvP battles in the danger zones of the game world are a "winner takes all" affair. Albion Online is the first PC game to enable the exact same experience on tablets.

Albion Online is currently in its final beta phase. The official release is scheduled for July 17, 2017.
