I played beta and a bit of launch and was wondering if the game was populated enough to come back to... for example is Caerleon still jam packed with people? and is there still several guilds fighting over territories? are hell gates still a good competition? Thanks in advance for your responses!
It's still alive.
It's a far cry from the 27k concurrent players at launch.
The steam launch wasn't that great.
The steamcharts data may be misleading as there is a resource bug if you leave the steam client open, so they suggest to keep the steam client closed.
Returned to the game a few days ago. The game looks and feels great. The population seems healthy, guilds seem very active. I think now is a good time to come back to Albion; some cool new content (random dungeons) should be on our way soon, in addition to all the content that was added during 2018.
