With Test Realm opening for the Fall Update any day now, KingsIsle has been releasing teasers over the last few weeks and this week has been especially busy when it comes to sneak peeks. That being said, we do know Marleybone is getting an expansion, as seen from the latest Vine videos and concept art posted on Twitter and Facebook, but the rest of the clues still remain unclear.
Yesterday, two brand new concept artworks were revealed on Wizard101 Fansites, showing a new boar boss and an unknown temple (picture above).
The most striking feature is that the boar's clothes instantly make you think of a shaolin monk, while he's holding what looks like a monk's spade in one hand. Is he the one living inside the Temple?
The temple has a similar architecture to shaolin monasteries. In the picture, you can also see plants covering the entrance, almost as if it has been abandoned for a while. Other notable things that are seen on the picture are a river, rocks and snow, the later being unusual as the temple seems to be located inside a cavern.
After some thought, it is clear that both artworks have something in common: they seem to be related to ancient China. However, I can't see any connection to Old Cob's storyline or any of the places he mentioned in Khrysalis. All in all, I'm guessing this will be a side world or area.
What did you think of these sneak peeks? Are you excited for some content based on ancient China? Leave a comment below and let me know!
