We've been super stoked for Albion Online for a while now, and as a veteran of Ultima Online, there arew few things I'm looking forward to playing on my iPad more than this. Well, we got a brief look today at how the touch interface of the game is going to work, and, well, it's exactly like how it works on a PC with a mouse. One major correction from this video though, Albion Online is going to be universal. The experience likely won't be as great on the iPhone, but you will be able to play it on any device.

Also, just for fun, here's another three videos of what high-level Albion Online play looks like:

Albion Online is in a closed beta right now, and they're still working hard on getting the game released. If you'd like to join in early, you can register an account right now.

    It's universal?!? YESSS!!!

    They originally stated universal, but took out iPhone support. I messaged them a few times about this, never had reply though.

    But now you say it's universal! ... Must've added iPhone support back in 🙂

      The guy says in the interview video its iPad only..?

  • Bloodangel

    Is it possible to get beta on iPhone now then?

    • Tuzzo

      The beta is still not on iOS.
      The videos were taken on an android tablet.
      When the game launches, it will be on iOS 8+ too and it will be universal.

    Wow. Looks like a mess. Don´t like these kind of games ...

    Why do I even leave a comment?

    This is not universal. In the video, starting at 2:45 the interviewer asks about the app being playable on phones. He explains there is no support for phones, and that if you have a larger one it should work. He then asks someone else offscreen if it is iPad only, and at 3:10 confirms it is iPad only and not universal. I would love it if they allowed any device to download with a disclaimer that it would not work on certain ones, but past experience shows that this will only drive low app scores due to people not reading and downloading on devices it won't work on, then leaving bad feedback for their own ineptitude.

      Legit after I stopped recording the other guy there clarified it was universal.

      • BradTheBad

        Will it be available for iPad mini 2?

  • jForsythe

    Is there a release date.?

    • jForsythe

      Can’t believe i posted this 2 years ago and the game still hasn’t come out yet. WTF
      By the time it does come out for ios it will probably be to late no one will care it’s getting that way for me.
