Aion is an MMORPG developed by NCsoft, set to release in September 2009 in NA/EU. What makes Aion different from other Eastern MMORPGs is its use of free flight as a part of combat and the use of the concept PVPVE. The Game Features three races - the Elyos, the Asmodians, and the NPC race Balaur. More information can be found on the Official Aion Website here.
Aion: Ascension is a powerful combination of its Free business model and the anticipated 3.0 update. Aion: Ascension introduces new and existing Players to refined starting areas and mid-level zones and advanced content for the more experienced Aion Player base with no subscriptions, no account tiers, and no purchase requirements.
Two playable factions, the Asmodians and the Elyos, inhabit the two halves of the shattered World of Atreia, battling one another for ultimate control over Atreia. The Asmodians are a brave, hardy, strong-willed people that are generous and fiercely loyal to their own, but fight ferociously against outsiders. The Elyos are a beautiful and radiant people, but have become arrogant, seeing their beautiful forms and their lands as an entitlement.
