MassivelyOP have announced their end of year awards for 2021, and we’re delighted to say that Albion Online has received the prize for best PvP! This follows the Deutscher Entwicklerpreis for Best Mobile Game received last week, making it Albion’s second award of the year. This particular award had not been given out since 2017, but this year the jury decided to bring it back, and we’re extremely proud that they chose to recognize the PvP experience of Albion Online in what was a very competitive field.
Explaining his choice, jury member and MassivelyOP writer Chris Neal stated:
“Albion actually enticed me to enter some PvP zones by giving me good PvE and crafting reasons to do so. That’s not something I can say about most PvP-centric MMOs.”
With one of the goals for Albion Online, particularly with the Lands Awakened update, being to encourage players to populate the open world and risk PvP in the pursuit of ever-greater rewards, it is especially heartening to hear that these efforts have been appreciated. Thanks are due to the jury, to everyone on the team who has worked so hard to create a unique PvP experience, and most of all to the players who truly make Albion such an exciting world in which to play.
