When we did our roundtable on the largest MMORPGs in 2022, I included Albion Online amongst them, and I stand by that inclusion. Regardless of your opinion of open PvP MMOs, the sport is solidly developed, reaches a big viewers on PC and cell, and truly has loads of good PvE content material.
And but I think that greater than something, the one factor that’s holding it again from breaking into everybody’s prime 5 or 10 is its viewpoint. Albion has that pseudo-isometric angled view, and whereas sure you may zoom in and swirl round and it’s not a real isometric sport, it evokes the sensation of being extra retro than its mechanics are. And far too many players nonetheless gained’t contact MMOs like that, which has at all times appeared bizarre to me when Diablo and Lost Ark thrive.
Are isometric-ish viewpoints in MMOs a turnoff for you?
