The Albion Online team has revealed the game’s world map that will be deployed when the Final Beta kicks off in July. Rather than “East & West” continents, players will find two Royal Islands and an entire continent called The Outlands. The idea of Outlands is to give more room for guilds and hardcore PvP players, something a huge playing field will give.
The Royal Islands are two separate islands: the King’s Isle and Queen’s Isle. They have resources up to Tier 7 and consist of green, yellow and red zones. Every player starts their adventure on either of two islands, the harbors of which allow them to travel to The Outlands. As the islands are governed by the Royal Expeditionary Forces, they are relatively safe and murderers will face consequences for their actions.
The Royal Islands are the perfect place for gatherers, crafters, roleplayers and small scale PvP.
The Outlands are completely covered in black zones, with resources up to Tier 8. There is no law enforcement. Players and guilds are free to claim territories and wage wars, plundering and murdering as they please. The land is bigger than both Royal Islands combined, making sure players have enough room to fight and conquer. The most powerful creatures will also be found in The Outlands, roaming around the best resources and secret treasures.
