Today Sandbox Interactive, the developer of cross-platform medieval MMORPG Albion Online, launched a new section of the game’s website dedicated specifically to the lore of Albion.
While Albion Online is a sandbox game where places and people continuously deepen the story, the mythological lore of Albion plays a huge part in understanding the reasons behind various occurrences in the game. The new section of the website has been created in cooperation with acclaimed English author Peter Newman. Newman also wrote “Landfall”, a novel based on the world of Albion that will launch next week.
