Monetization

Type Notes
Free-to-play Nearly all of Albion Online's content is accessible for free.
Subscription Albion Online offers per-character subscription, which can be paid for either via real money transactions or with in-game currencies. Every character starts with free 3 days of premium. While technically optional, premium is, in practice, required for anyone who wishes to engage with the game seriously.

Microtransactions

Type Notes
Cosmetic Albion Online offers various cosmetic microtransactions, from mounts to outfits and more.
Currency Albion Online offers two in-game currencies.
Gold, which is purchasable with real money transactions, and silver, which is earnable directly in game and can purchase every single item that exists in the game via player-driven marketplaces.
Gold and silver can be exchanged via in-game marketplace and the cost is free floating based on player demand.
Free-to-grind Nearly all content (except player islands) and all items are accessible to free-to-play players who wish to grind for it.
Infinite spend Every single in-game item is purchasable via the game's marketplace, and since the main in-game currency can be purchases for real money via the gold exchange market, there is no cap on how much one could ultimately spend.
