Developers launch new server for Asia-Pacific region
01/23/2023 - Albion Online today announced the launch of a new server, Albion East, for the Asia Pacific region. Along with a new launch in the world of Albion, the new server offers significantly improved connectivity and optimized event times for players across Asia and Australia.
The game remains Free to Play on both servers, and the available Founder Packs offer Early Access to the Albion East server, full access to the closed beta on that server in February, protection for existing character and guild names, and many valuable in-game items, including Gold (the game's premium currency), Premium (the optional subscription), and exclusive, limited-time Founder prestige items.
"Albion East" (Asia-Pacific) Server Features:
- A new, untouched version of the game where all players can start on an equal footing and fight for their own part of Albion;
- A game world that is completely separate and independent from the existing "Albion West" server;
- Greatly improved connection speeds and pings for the entire Asia-Pacific region;
- Adjusted times for game and server events (Territorial Battles, Crystal League, Faction Battles) optimized for the region.
- Founders receive eligibility to participate in the closed beta prior to server launch with faster fame progression and receive Early Access at server launch, as well as reservation options for existing character and guild names.
