The forthcoming Merlyn update will bring Faction Warfare to the world of Albion. This feature will involve several new systems, including a combination recruitment center / store, outpost capturing, and new faction-based capes. Each of these systems requires brand-new NPCs, items, and structures that reflect the unique aspects of Albion's five biomes.
Here's a preview of some of these new assets, alongside the original concept art that inspired them. All analog sketches are by Marcus Koch, Art Director of Albion Online, and concepts are by him and other members of the art team (Florian Roessler, Larissa Hasenheit, and Melissa Mueller).
