Florian Bodenschatz, Albion Online’s Sound Designer discusses some of the design challenges and how sound is curated for a game like Albion Online. Whether it’s the sound of a certain weapon clanging against another weapon or the sound of traversing across multiple types of terrain, every piece of audio in Albion Online is created and arranged by Florian Bodenschatz and his team.
In this video, Florian Bodenschatz explains the process during the sound design stage of development and breaks down the factors that are crucial for creating a truly immersive atmosphere.
