The game has 4 expansion packs including The Notum Wars (2002), Shadowlands (2003), Alien Invasion (2004) and Lost Eden (2006).

Anarchy Online credits are the in-game currency. AO Credits are earned by completing missions or by hunting mobs in the wild of Rubi-Ka. Nearly all items can be sold to vendor terminals or NPCs for credits. Players use Anarchy Online credits to trade items between themselves or trade with player shops provided by the Alien Invasion expansion. The in-game economy suffers from inflation. As of June 27, 100 million AO credits are selling for about $20, where as playing in 3 hours of low-level can earn only 600 credits.
