Precisely for this reason, we decided to create an article in which we tell you how the Albion Online map is organized, so that you know what you are going to encounter.

In this article, therefore, we will not only show you graphically some of the areas that you can visit in Albion Online, but we will also explain their subdivision and the most important areas on the map. If you have just started your adventure in the game, this is certainly a very useful guide to consult.

The first thing to know is that the Albion Online map is divided into two continents, five biomes, and a myriad of different cities. In this article, therefore, we will explain step by step everything you need to know about the map, so that you can have a greater understanding of everything.


There are two different continents in Albion Online: The Royal Continent and The Outlands. Let's see together what the differences and similarities of these two different continents are.

The Royal Continent

Once you're done with the tutorial that takes place on a small island that's not part of either of the two continents, you will go to the Royal Continent to begin your adventure. This continent is a big part of Albion and has five Starter Towns, where you will first go after the tutorial, and six Royal Cities. On the Royal Continent, there are blue, yellow, and red zones, but no black zones. This means that while PvP with full loot is possible, the always-dangerous black-zone PvP is only in the Outlands.

The Outlands

The Outlands is a big piece of land in the north of Albion. You can get there from the Royal Continent using five Realmgates, one in each of the five Royal Cities. Here's the thing about the Outlands: all the zones there are black zones. This means that if you win a fight, you get all the goodies. And guess what? In the Outlands, any player can attack any other player without worrying about losing their reputation.

Alternate Realms

Finally, in Albion Online, there are also Alternate Realms present on the game map. In fact, these are regions that exist outside the map and are unstable, so it is not easy to enter them because they follow different rules from the normal map. Let's see together what they are and their characteristics.

Roads of Avalon

The Roads of Avalon are like a big web of areas. You can get into them through portals that pop up randomly in the world. Once you're in, it's like being in a Black Zone where PvP rules are tough. And here's the twist: any portal you find could take you anywhere in Albion's world or deeper into the Roads. Nothing's permanent; everything's always changing.

The Mists

The Mists are like a magical place you can get into through portals that don't last long. These areas aren't like any specific place in Albion, and you can find all sorts of stuff there. Sometimes, you might even find a way to go to other parts of the world or to a place called the City in the Mists: Brecilien. In the Mists, there are creatures you won't find anywhere else, and if you beat them, they might drop some really rare and valuable stuff.
