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.
