While at PAX Prime we had a chance to talk to Chris Hager Producer from NCSoft and watched as he took us on a walk through of Aion for the PC. First I will give you a brief look into this online fantasy MMO.
Explore one of the most amazingly beautiful and detailed MMORPGs ever as you fight to save a vibrant world ripped asunder by a celestial war.
Choose between two divine factions, the Asmodians or the Elyos, and save your people from an ancient evil that threatens to destroy everything in its path.
Over 1500 story-driven quests lead you through a wondrous and expansive world like no other.
Aion from the word go is visually stunning and easy to play. You have a lot of customization available at your finger tips for your character from choosing it’s height and weight to the scale of your body parts the possibilities are endless. There are four primary classes to choose from at the start of the game (warrior, mage, priest, scout) and each class will branch out once reaching level 9 and give the possibilities of 8 different classes you could end up with.
The gameplay ranges from learning a new craft to running around with a group completing quests that bring you deeper into the World of Aion as war has been declared on the god that created them, as he created the twelve Empyrean Lords and gave them the power to protect the Tower of Eternity. The gameplay is linear progression and as you explore further and complete quests you are brought deeper into the action and the world of Aion.
