    World of Aion

    The universe of Aion is stunningly beautiful and unique.


    Your adventures and travels take you to the shell-world of Atreia, once connected by Aion, The Tower of Eternity, but now shattered into two halves and a myriad of shards by an ancient cataclysm. Players will traverse these lands in their first steps on a journey to bring salvation to the world, explore floating islands, voids and other amazing vistas.


    Each half of the shattered world is inhabited by one of two playable divine factions, the Elyos and the Asmodian. Isolated by the cataclysm that broke Atreia apart, each side brooded on the catastrophic events of the past and their hatred intensified for the other.


    Many centuries later, fragments of the destroyed tower began to float mysteriously in the air, and soon investigations discovered unstable portals or gates that opened into an unknown place of darkness and wonder where fragments of Aion drifted. Called the Abyss, where the once-lost power of flight is now commonplace, the two races eventually discovered one another and very quickly went to war.


    As the Elyos and the Asmodians uncovered new, more stable portals to the Abyss, they encountered a primeval terror that they had known only in their histories: the Balaur. Previously imprisoned within the Abyss during the cataclysm, the Balaur are the ancient enemy of all the peoples of Atreia, and it was the Balaurís continual war that had led to the eventual shattering of Aion. Now they have returned, and the survival of both races is now more uncertain than ever.

    Couldn't see any other threads on this game, so thought I'd post in here.

    I've pre-ordered from Play, but no beta codes are forthcoming with it. Have I gone and made a mistake? Are there only specific outlets that provide you with beta keys when you pre-order?

    I've gone for the collector's edition (what the heck, I need some more clutter on my shelves) so I didn't fancy just doing a download via Steam or whatever...

    It's not going to bother me if I don't get into a beta for it - I'll be playing when it's released anyway, for me the beta would have been a way of trying out the classes prior to retail release.

    I thought Play.com did not give away beta codes for this game.

    That's what I was asking - if they don't, then I guess I chose the wrong retailer! This is where research would have been useful on my part ;)

    Been playing the beta of this for the last couple of weekends it's been up - I'm very impressed with it.

    If you pre-order direct from NCSoft as opposed to play or amazon then you get the beta key emailed to you straight away. Also, I seem to remember the CE was cheaper direct from NCSoft than it was on other retailers websites.

    And while I'm at it, http://www.aionsource.com is another very nice community fansite.

    Aye just saw they are doing a giveaway.

    Doesn't seem to be that much interest on EG for this yet, but I'm sure that will change as it's shaping up to be a very promising MMO.

    To anyone playing the beta - I'm up for some group levelling if you roll on Ariel server and fancy being Asmodian (the dark race).

    My chars are:
    Lumi
    Banshee
    Bubbles
    Fanta

    EDIT: and WTB more people in the only Aion group that there is. It's totally dead at the moment.

    Doubt much interest will come from a 4 day beta, from the look of the game graphics, it's going to take most of that time to download the sodding client.

    I don't really see the point of such a short beta, I do want to check the game out though.

    there's several short betas, not just this one.

    When I can download the game client? Now it says serial not yet active.
    It takes several days to download that big file so if it comes available when the event starts, im gonna miss the event >_>

    It's not a 4 day beta, there have been a couple of weekend betas already and several more are planned at regular intervals until launch, with the next one starting next Friday 3rd July.

    We currently get to keep our characters throughout the beta aswell so we dont have to restart from level 1 each weekend which is nice.

    Aye, as soon as you create your master NCSoft account and can register your beta key you can download and update the client so you are ready to go next Friday.

    Still, why not just do a normal traditional beta, or are they trying to limit it so people don't get bored of the game pre-release?

    For those having problems downloading the EU client because the server is not available, do the following.

    Switch the NCLauncher to the region 'North America' and then download the game client. The NA and EU clients are identical.

    Once you have Aion installed, switch the NCLauncher back to the region 'Europe' and you should be good to go for the upcoming beta.

    I looked at a few Aion videos online, the graphics look great, seems to run smoothly too. Animations are also very good. My reservations about the PvE remain, but we'll have to wait and see on that. The interface looks as bad as most eastern MMOs, so hopefully tat will get a change at one point, or there will be mods for it. PvP is a mixed bag, it looks like it works well, but I'm worried about ganking and the general structure of it all.

    That it'll be shit, like every eastern MMO I've ever played.

    As I said, reservations, not criticisms, as I've not personally seen it. (though I will soon)
