Sandbox Interactive, the developer behind a very promising and already successful sandbox MMORPGAlbion Online, announced that after two weeks since the closed beta started, the game hit the 60,000 Founders mark. They had this infograph prepared with the data on how many guilds, buildings, PvP kills, and founded countries the players contributed.

“It is an amazing feeling to reach this milestone and have so many people enjoying your fruits of labor,” said Christian Ziegert, Head of Operations at Sandbox Interactive. “We are grateful for all the support of our Founders and we will continue working closely with our community to keep improving Albion Online further.”

This free online game offers players an extensive character customization system with no class restrictions, a completely player-driven economy, dynamic PvP battles, and founding of nations.

Albion Online will be released as free-to-play on Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, and Android in Q1 2016.
