Aion Balaurea expansion dated

More levels! Pets! Different flying!

NCsoft has stamped a 10th September date on Aion free expansion Assault on Balaurea.

Those of you in the US will be able to play slightly earlier from 7th September.

Assault on Balaurea has some pointless story about the invading Balaur. Really, the attraction will be on a raised level cap, new weapons, items and skills, and different flight mechanics.

In addition, NCsoft is introducing player pets to the game that provide in-game bonuses.

Aion is NCsoft's big Western hope. You may know it as the MMO that gives you wings. It's pretty and expertly made. Oli Welsh reviewed Aion for Eurogamer.
