Get a Grey Wolf in the New Referral Season



A new referral season starts today! From now until April 10, refer your friends and get three exclusive rewards: the Domesticated Hog, the Recruiter's Grey Wolf Cape, and the Recruiter's Grey Wolf.

How to Earn Seasonal Referral Rewards

The new referral season lasts until April 10. There are three ways to collect referrals and earn your very own Grey Wolf:
  • The easiest way is by sending Trial Keys to your friends. Each key redeemed on an account without a key on it will count toward your referral season progress.
  • Additionally, any Starter Pack that you buy and that gets redeemed on an account without a key will also count toward your progress.
  • And last but not least: if a friend registers through your referral link, then buys and redeems a Starter Pack on their account, you’ll also progress.
To get an overview of your current progress this season, and to see the FAQ for the referral system, click here.

Streamer Spotlight: Gugusteh



Name: Gugusteh
Channel: https://www.twitch.tv/gugusteh
General Streaming Schedule: Mostly weekends, plus weekday evenings (EU time)
Main Focuses: Solo roaming, live ZvZs


How did you get into streaming? How long have you been an Albion streamer?

I started streaming only a few months ago (I think around October). I first started streaming some city GvGs, some really short streams. I later started to watch videos a lot on the side while roaming. I wanted to watch Albion videos on the side, but not many people were streaming during the hours I usually play. Since people enjoyed the videos I did about my solo roaming, I decided to show it live and be the one doing the show that other people could watch while they roamed.

How is streaming Albion different from streaming other games?

Albion is a hard game to stream since there is a lot of downtime between PvP action or interesting moments. You also take some additional risks when playing alone, and you need to hide a lot of information when streaming ZvZs since it’s really easy to locate a streamer.

The experience is, however, really positive in general: the community is really enjoyable when you get to know it, having a PvP encounter is even more thrilling on stream since you don't want to make mistakes and get a free ticket back to the city.

In Albion almost everything is unexpected and you can go from a calm ambiance to a really exciting moment just in a second.

What is your general approach to streaming? Do you plan out activities in advance, or head out into the world and see what happens?

I usually turn on the stream when I feel like it, that's the reason why there is no precise schedule. When I come back from work I log in to Albion and based on what I want to do, I'll either turn the stream on or not. Since I can do anything, my gameplay can vary a lot.

Sometimes, however, I plan some precise streams, but I don't force myself to do only one activity: Albion is a sandbox and I want to profit fully.



In addition to streaming on Twitch, you've created lots of Youtube videos with pretty high production values and editing. Do you plan your Youtube videos in advance, or create them based on spontaneous footage?

My videos are usually about an event that happened recently but I usually don’t “rush” them. For some cases I do the editing just after it happens in-game (for example, ZvZs) but if I don’t like the outcome, I rework it another day.

In general I have 2 kinds of videos:
  • The ones that I try to upload within a week
  • The “special projects” requiring more footage and editing that I upload later.
In general I try to show people how the game can be enjoyed, and all the special moments that are worth a deeper look.

Do you have any favorite moments from your streams?

I think my favorite moment on stream is the roleplay session before every reset day. It’s a really particular moment since I have to deal with the comms and the stream at the same time, but I try my best to make it appreciable. Every Invasion Day we mass early on our guild island and do a “ceremony” with the whole guild. It’s a really fun time.

Aside from that, I've had some really good moments on stream discussing various things in chat. For example, regarding certain Albion mechanics, the opinions are not always the same and discussing that is always interesting.

Any ideas for new content for future streams?

I plan to redo one kind of stream that I’ve already done: an “AMA stream” where I try to explain the game to new players / people discovering it while leveling up a new character from zero.

Also I’ve had multiple ideas for events and I really want to do some of them on stream, but I need to think further about that.

Do you have any advice or tips for other players who are considering being Albion streamers?

Always have multiple sets when you go into PvP zones: you will die, just make sure that you don’t have to spend those five extra minutes at the auction house.

The community in Albion is really strong but it might be hard at the beginning, just don't get disillusioned by the first troll and you will enjoy your time.

Anything else to add?

If you're just starting the game or want to know a bit more about it, feel free to contact me anywhere: Discord, Twitch, YouTube, forum, Twitter... I’m always glad to help people to get into the game.

Can you share some of your favorite clips with us?

About This Game

Albion Online is a sandbox MMORPG set in an open medieval fantasy world. The game features a player-driven economy where nearly every item is player-crafted. Combine armor pieces and weapons suited to your playstyle in a unique, classless "you are what you wear" system. Explore the world, take on other adventurers in thrilling battles, conquer territories, and build a home.



Craft. Trade. Conquer.
Dive in now and become part of a living fantasy world where everybody matters.

Key Features



From basic tools and clothes to mighty armors and powerful weapons – nearly every item in the game is crafted by players, in player-constructed buildings, from resources gathered by players. Buy, sell, and trade with other players at local marketplaces all across the world of Albion. Craft rare and powerful items, then sell them to the highest bidder and grow your fortune.



With Albion Online's classless combat system, switching playstyles is as easy as switching gear. Test out new equipment anytime and swap out weapons, armor, and mounts to suit any situation. Hone your character’s skills by crafting new items, or by simply using your favorite equipment.



From solo to small-group to large-scale battles, you'll need strategy, tactics and skill to prevail. Test your skills against other adventurers in high-risk, high-reward full-loot fights, and use every tactic at your disposal to emerge victorious.



Join a guild and carve out your own piece of Albion in tactical guild-versus-guild battles. Take over territories for access to incredible resources. Build guild halls and crafting stations, and conquer entire cities to levy taxes and grow your wealth. Track your guild's progress on a constantly-updated leaderboard, and take on leadership roles to bring your guild to new heights of glory.



Claim a city plot or private island and make it your own. Plant crops to sell or craft into food, raise your own livestock and mounts, and place crafting stations for other players to use for a fee. Stock your house with custom furniture and trophies, build chests to store your growing collection of loot, and hire laborers to keep everything at your homestead running smoothly.



From small scouting bands to massive bosses, from dungeons to full-blown faction bases, the inhabitants of Albion’s open world await your challenge. Explore five beautiful biomes, each with its own challenges. Take on six different factions, each with unique enemies that require their own strategy. Partake in solo or group expeditions – or seek out the ultimate thrill by facing demons and other players alike in Hellgates.



Albion Online is a true cross-platform MMO experience. Whether you prefer Windows, Mac, Linux, or even Android or iOS (mobile currently in beta), one account lets you play on all platforms, with all players on a single shared server. Forge alliances with other players worldwide and take part in massive battles to determine the fate of Albion.
