NCsoft Debuts Third Entry in Aion Video Podcast Series

Third in the series showcases successful collaboration of East and West in developing this year’s biggest MMO

NCsoft is pleased to unveil the third part of a special behind-the-scenes look at the highly anticipated MMO, Aion, which launches next week, Sept. 22. Entitled“East Meets West,” the latest podcast showcases the work that has gone into bringing a game that has been massively successful in the East to Western audiences.

Unlike any MMO before it, Aion is a uniquely crafted online experience where flight offers much more than just a way to explore the landscape– it is a strategic and integral part of combat, quests, and exploration. Players will dive into battle and plunge through thousands of unique, story-driven quests, all while trying to save a world literally shattered in half from centuries of brutal conflict. Using one of the most flexible and in-depth character customization systems ever featured in an MMO, players will be able to create genuinely distinct characters and explore a visually stunning world of ethereal beauty brimming with otherworldly inhabitants, mysterious enemies, and ancient secrets. Aion launches in North America on September 22, 2009.
