    Default Aion 2.0 Release date! Assault on Balaurea

    NCsoft Reveals Release Date for Aion’s Highly Anticipated Free Expansion – Aion®: Assault on Balaurea™

    Aion Players in North America and Europe can begin exploring the world far beyond the traditional territories of Asmodae and Elysea starting September 7th.

    Today, NCsoft, the world's premier publisher and developer of Massively Multiplayer Online games (MMOs), unveiled the official release date for Aion: Assault on Balaurea, the next exciting chapter in Aion that entrenches players into a rich storyline in which their actions will determine the fate of the world. Aion: Assault on Balaurea releases digitally to PCs in North America and Europe on Sept. 7, 2010, however, players looking for retail boxed copies of the full game featuring exclusive in-game pets will find them at select retailers in North America on Sept. 7 and on Sept. 10 in Europe.

    In Aion: Assault on Balaurea, the exciting new chapter of Aion, characters have the ability to align together to launch massive counter assaults against the invading Balaur on their homeland while experiencing new and updated instances and zones, an increased level cap, new weapons and items, new skills and added flight mechanics. Characters will not be alone as they explore the new areas, as Aion introduces functional pets equipped with in-game benefits.

    Unlike any MMO before it, Aion is a uniquely crafted online gaming experience where flight offers much more than just a way to gracefully explore the landscape - it is a strategic and integral part of combat, quests, and exploration. Players will use flight to dive into battle and plunge through thousands of unique, story-driven quests, all while trying to save and control a world literally shattered in half from centuries of brutal conflict.

    typical, they never release WHAT'S LITERALLY in the patch, but rather just talk and talk crap about how it's new and exciting and "pets, new gameplay", but they never mention in detail about them

    Pathetic game, with pathetic grind, and pathetic content, that's what aion is and will be for a long while

    I liked how when Darkfall failed...all the Aion kids were picking on the select few who played Darkfall...then when they realized Aion was fail...they got real quiet.

    Darkfail's community was the biggest problem, whatever you said to them their response was: GTFO CAREBEAR. And I was like o.o'' the hell just happened?

    Has Aion failed? hmm how so? Yes, as a new game the player number went sky high and back to the hills but how has it failed? I mean, Darkfall.. it's not even played that mutch anymore... Aion still has a few active servers, isn't that eneugh? otherwise, most P2P mmos have failed.

    Aion even with the merge most server had a huge population balance problem and as for DF even if i hate it , i must say iit features are well better than Aion could ever be besides the Char.customisation

    It kind of failed I guess, but not epicly, if they get a solid community that is willing to pay every month then the game didn't fail imo. All launches of any MMORPG are most likely huge.

    Aion hasn't failed at ALL. It was over-hyped as another "WoW Killer." We all know deep down that the only game that could possibly "kill" wow is Bilzzards next MMO. But anyways, Aion just had its first server merge. I'm a current player, and was unaware that this merge was even coming. The servers were active enough ( no where near the ghost town that is Warhammer.) Now, post-merge, they are nearly as crowded as they were at launch in nearly all areas. Its' definitely still a successful game, though maybe not as successful here as in Korea.

    Agreed, in Korea it's just crazy. With one of their protests against something (can't remember anymore, google it) they actually managed to crash a couple of servers with just the amount of people logging in on those servers.
