Albion Online, the popular sandbox MMORPG developed by Sandbox Interactive, has broken its all-time player record following the launch of its new server, Albion East. The game saw a surge in new players on March 20, the day Albion East went live, bringing the total number of active users to 277,000. Just over a week later, on April 2, that record was smashed when the servers had a combined total of over 300,000 active users.
These record-breaking numbers also brought Albion Online to its highest-ever concurrent player count on Steam alone, with 25,833 players online at one time. The game’s previous record of 271,000 daily active users was set in June 2021, after the official mobile launch of the game. The recent milestone achieved by the new two-server system demonstrates a strong start for Albion Online’s new chapter.
The Albion Online community has been excitedly discussing the launch of Albion East, with many praising the game’s developers for their dedication and hard work. Some players have reported that the new server has brought a fresh energy to the game, while others have noted the increased competition and new challenges that come with a growing player base.
For those who haven’t yet jumped into the game, the launch of Albion East provides an excellent opportunity to get started. Players can choose to play on either Albion East or Albion West, or both servers if they wish. Those who purchase Albion East Founder Packs before April 30 will have access to exclusive vanity and furniture items that will never be sold again.
Albion Online is a free-to-play game that allows players to explore a vast open world, engage in PvP battles, and build their own kingdoms. With the launch of Albion East and its record-breaking player numbers, now is the perfect time to join the Albion Online community and experience all that this exciting game has to offer.
