    Default Aion Open Beta client available

    Source: http://na.aiononline.com/en/news/ope...-download.html

    Following our recent announcement regarding the commencement of Aion's open beta, we have taken steps to ensure a smooth setup and preparation process for all participants. While our Launcher will incrementally update your client, the new and patched Aion open beta client has been distributed to a select few partners around the web to prepare for our open beta test. To get your hands on it, you may visit FilePlanet or download it from GamersHell (available later this week).

    We have also added a new option that the Aion community has long anticipated: downloading the full open beta client via our BitTorrent tracker (md5 checksum). We have even arranged for a torrent patch for those of you who already have the closed beta client installed but want to get prepared for open beta!

    As added extra spice, FilePlanet will--in addition to distributing the client--be giving away a load of open beta keys starting on Tuesday, September 1, 2009. Get on the starting line if you do not have an eligible Aion account already! Eligible accounts include any previous closed beta participants and those who have preordered or prepurchased Aion.
    You can now download the client for the OB:

    update patch from previous version

    NCSoft knows how not to fail like champions online

    Enjoy

    Honestly aion/ {Ion as they say it} Is just a generic game..I have yet to see anything unique about it..it steals from like a dozen games....

    I'd avoid the torrents for now.... you'd only get hooked up to peers with no seeds. ><

    can you tell me what a non generic game would be? give me some ideas. you can't just create everything new. the genre has evolved as far as it will for a very long time. find monster, kill monster by clicking, monster dies. pick up quest, do quest, turn in quest, level up. those will be in every single mmo for years. it's what they are...

    It will.

    Any preorder key will work... looking at the price it seems it'll be more of a open/closed beta key then a preorder key though. ._.

    The package on the back says "Pre order package, preorder key + all the preorder bonuses. This is not the full game" . . . So, I am thinking this gives you all the preorder benefits + key, but when the full game comes out, you have to buy it on this account via credit card or some other payment method to continue playing and have access to all the items for the preorder people.

    I didn't know having an opinion made you a troll, I admit its a stupid comment but hes isn't a troll. The word Troll is thrown around way too much these days.

    Wow.. NCSoft fails, make it an OPEN beta, not a open closed beta.
    They are like forcing you to pre-order the game if you want to test it out before you go put down 60 bucks.
    I know its only like 5 or 10 bucks to get the code, but still, for an open beta.. Let people try it before they go out and pre-order it.
    Played Aion at my cousins place, tbh.. Just a generic korean MMO..

    Stop complaining about it being an exclusive Open Beta, most P2P games are going to be exclusive in one way or another. I have no intention of buying or playing Aion but I have already participated in two betas.

    I don't know when the Open Beta is, but maybe there will be some free codes available by then.

    there goes away any possibility of trying this game, it's either "pay for an account" or "open beta it's only for North America" for that piece of crap fileplanet site

    The reason many games are going to this method of open beta is because they want people to test the game more and report issues. This is more likely to happen with people that want to play the game and just not use it as a trial. Many open betas that are completely open lately just end up with idiots running spamming LOLOMG THIS IS WORSE THAN WOW, not simply testing and reporting issues. If people want games to launch with a better quality they need to report bugs during the beta test and not just use it as a trial.
