On April 10th, anyone with a hankering to do so will be able to play Albion Online thanks to its free to play launch. "This change will bring incredible new dimensions to the world of Albion, as a new generation of players ready to make their mark on the world enters the fray." the blog reads.
Players who have purchased a Founder or Starter Pack will receive the Specter Wolf mount seen above as their "exclusive thank-you gift". In addition, from April 1-10, players will enjoy a Fame boost to help unlock new gear and raise specs.
Will there be changes to Albion Online’s business model?
Albion Online’s business model has always been based on two pillars: Premium status, which can be bought with either real money or ingame currency, and a vanity-only ingame shop. This business model will not change when the game goes free-to-play. The only difference is that you will no longer need to purchase the game in order to play.
