Albion Online is a free-to-play MMO game that offers players a vast open world, hardcore PvE and PvP combat, a fully player-driven economy, and a unique, classless "you are what you wear" system. Players can explore the world, take on other adventurers in thrilling open-world and arena battles, conquer territories, and build a homestead to farm crops and raise animals. The game is available on both desktop and mobile platforms, with one account letting players play on all platforms, with all players on a single shared server.<br/><br/>The game features five vivid biomes, where players can gather raw materials for crafting or fish in lakes and oceans. Players can seek out dungeons with powerful foes and lucrative rewards, and enter the mystical Roads of Avalon to discover ever-changing paths between distant zones. Hardcore, full-loot PvP is available in Albion's red and black zones, while safer zones are available for gathering and PvE. Players can test themselves against other adventurers in high-risk, high-reward full-loot PvP, and join 1v1 fights in Corrupted Dungeons and 5v5 battles in the Arena and Crystal Realm.<br/><br/>Albion Online's player-driven economy is a unique feature of the game. Nearly every item in the game is crafted by players, in player-constructed buildings, from resources gathered by players. Players can buy, sell, and trade at local marketplaces all across the world of Albion and grow their fortune. In Albion Online's classless combat system, the weapons and armor players use define their skills, and switching playstyles is as easy as switching gear. Players can hone their character’s skills by crafting new items and using new equipment, and progress through the RPG-style skill trees of the Destiny Board.<br/><br/>Players can face deadly foes in Albion’s open world, taking on six different factions, each with unique enemies that require their own strategies. They can partake in solo or group Expeditions, or seek out the ultimate thrill by facing demons and other players alike in Hellgates and Corrupted Dungeons. Joining a guild allows players to carve out their own piece of Albion, claim territories for access to incredible resources, construct guild halls, build Hideouts, and track their progress against other guilds worldwide on the leaderboards. Players can also claim a city plot or private island and make it their own, growing crops, raising their own livestock and mounts, and building crafting stations.
