http://albiononline.com/the-game/ This game, in it's alpha currently, looks very promising, immersive, it is truly cross platform including Tablet friendly, plays on one huge Master Server, seems like decent to good graphics for a game of this scope, the way Runescape should still be..or better.

 

Update on FB Pag, intro to Albion Online video.

Looks like it's in internal Alpha. I don't know how to feel if there's nothing to personally test, but I'll keep an eye on it. Truly player driven economies like Old Runescape had are pretty neat.

True enough. The Old Runescape had a very immersive player driven economy. This game also will not have any kind of micropay, cash shops

Do you have to buy the game? Or is it run through advertisements they'll throw at you?

It will be entirely free to play. As for adverts I don't know.

There's no way it's completely free to play. I'm calling shenanigans.

“Free to Play”, but NOT “Pay to Win”
  • We (the company) are not selling items to the players. We are only acting like a central bank, exchanging currencies.
  • Items and resources can only be bought from other players.
  • You can acquire every item (realistically) and every premium service without ever paying with real money.

 

How much will Albion Online cost?
  • Albion Online is Free to Play but it is not “Pay to Win”!
  • You can realistically experience everything without paying with real money even once.
  • You can even buy premium currency for the ingame currency.

 

You can even buy premium currency for the ingame currency.

Aside from that, that is not necessarily the same thing as a stereotypical cash shop/micropay scheme. It seems that the ability  acquire in-game currency and "premium" currency is not in itself exclusively linked with real cash. I am willing at this point to give them the benefit of the doubt, to see where this goes

It's exactly like the typical cash shop. I didn't see anywhere where they listed what you can buy with the premium coins but I can guess you can use them to get supplies and whatnot right away instead of just farming them ingame to buy with the regular currency.

Looks like they sell the gold and you use the gold to buy things from other players.

This game is still in development and has in fact undergone Player testing. It is very near release. This game deserves this community's interest imo
