The Outlands is a huge landmass to the north of the Royal Continent. Located within the continent are three small towns (similar to the cities on The Royal Continent). The Outlands are made up entirely of black zones.
Arriving in the Outlands
Returning to any city on the Royal Continent (either through a portal or death) - unless the player took the portal back during the 30 second grace period - will portal lock the player for 10 minutes. This means the player can only go through that Realmgate exit until the lock expires.
Each Realmgate has three exit portals to the Outlands. Using one of these exits will lock the player to the city's Realmgate. While this lock is active, the player will not be able to use any other city's Realmgate until the lock is removed.
This lock can be removed in two ways:
- Travel to a different-colored portal in the Outlands.
- Remove the binding at a Realmgate in any other city. (Note: This possibility has 7 days cooldown).
Prime times will occur at 0:00, 3:00, 5:00, 12:00, 15:00, 18:00, and 21:00 UTC. The number of areas in a given prime time directly relates to player numbers during these times. (This only affects territory battles).
The Outlands offers a lot of content for both solo and group players. Placing a hideout may help a lot with long time trips to zones.
There are a few things that can be found only in the Outlands:
- Avalonian Dungeons
- Territory Battles
- Outposts and Castles
The Outlands also offers a bonus to silver drops and fame.

|Version 1.16.392.158262||20 January 2020||Queen Update||
|Version 1.16.392.158262||20 January 2020||Queen Update||The Queen update completely reworks the Outlands, with lower-tier zones at the outer edge and higher-tier zones at the center. This allows guilds of different strengths to compete at their own levels, and alongside numerous additional new systems such as Hideouts and Open-World Territory Battles (see below), allows guilds to truly live in the Outlands.
The updated Outlands continent contains three small towns: Arthur's Rest, Merlyn's Rest, and Morgana's Rest. Each has a bank, repair station, and local marketplace, as well as a shrine for an invisibility buff lasting 30 seconds or until departing, allowing players to choose their exit in secret.All clusters within an Outlands region now share the same prefix for improved search and navigation, and portal clusters are indicated by name.
|Version 1.16.392.158262||20 January 2020||Queen Update||The Avalonians are a new elite faction found in Elite Randomized Dungeons, which spawn in all T6-8 Outlands zones and offer a high-level challenge to groups of 10-20 players. Along with the highest-value loot in the game, these dungeons contain a shrine that offers a week-long Fame increase for killing mobs. In addition to the Avalonian Basilisk mount, tools, and foods already introduced with the Standalone Season, players can now obtain artifacts and shards from defeated Avalonian mobs which can be crafted into three different sets (cloth/leather/plate) of Avalonian Artifact Armor with a wide range of new abilities. (Currently all levels of this armor have the same appearance when worn, tiers will be differentiated in an upcoming patch.)|
|Version 1.14.381.141987||9 May 2019||Oberon Patch 5 (Midseason Patch)||Players can now remove their portal binding (i.e. the lock to a particular city's Outlands portal) once every 30 days. This allows some flexibility with portal locks, while ensuring it only occurs for important reasons (guild moves, major strategic changes, urgent access to a new territory, etc.). The option of switching city bindings by traveling across the Outlands to a different-colored portal remains in effect.|
|Version 1.14.381.141987||9 May 2019||Oberon Patch 5 (Midseason Patch)||Three major new Outland regions have been added to the world of Albion: Siluria (equivalent in size and value to Cumbria) and West and East Glouvia (equivalent in size and value to West and East Anglia, respectively). While these regions will be claimable during the next Invasion Day (May 18), and will generate siphoned energy and spawn loot chests, they will not contribute season points to the current (sixth) GvG season. They will begin generating season points as normal at the beginning of Season 7. In conjunction with this expansion and the redistribution of Outlands portals, Energy Manipulator NPCs have been added close to the Realmgate in each of the Royal Cities.|
