Explore the inside of Atreia, a world sundered into two halves, with the chaotic Abyss between them.
Aion takes place in Atreia, a stunningly beautiful world split in two.
Once connected by the Tower of Eternity, Atreia was sundered by anancient cataclysm. On your journey to bring salvation to the world,your character will traverse the inner surface of Atreia, exploringlush lands, floating islands, chaotic voids, and many other amazingvistas.
Each half of the shattered world is inhabited by one of two playabledivine factions: the Elyos and the Asmodians. Isolated by the Cataclysmthat broke Atreia apart, each side has brooded for centuries on thecatastrophic events of the past. Their hatred for each other has onlyintensified.
Many centuries after the Cataclysm, fragments of the destroyed Towerbegan to float mysteriously in the air, and investigations revealedunstable portals that opened into a dimension of darkness and wonderwhere fragments of the Tower drifted. This place was named the Abyss.Within the Abyss, the once-lost power of flight is now commonplace. TheAbyss is where Elyos and Asmodians contend to fight an epic battle forsupremacy.
As the Elyos and the Asmodians uncovered new, more stable portals tothe Abyss, they encountered a primeval terror that they had known onlyin storybooks: the Balaur. Banished to an unknown dimension during theCataclysm, the Balaur are the ancient enemy of all the peoples ofAtreia. The Balaur's continual war on humanity led to Cataclysm. Nowthey have returned, the survival of both races and Atreia itself ismore uncertain than ever.
Start thinking of online combat in a whole new way. In the skies of Aion, attacks can come from any direction.
After centuries of isolation, the two factions, Elyos and Asmodian,discovered portals into the dimension between the split halves of theworld: the Abyss. Some humans rediscovered the power of flight afterthey ascend to become Daevas. Daevas have wings and the ability to fly.While this ability is somewhat limited in their own lands, they foundthat mastering flight was a necessity in the Abyss.
In the chaotic Abyss, attacks can come from any direction. Daevasbecome masters of flight, and must continually upgrade their flightpower with Aether-infused feathers in order to stand against the dualthreat--that of the opposing faction and the Balaur--in the Abyss.
You'll learn what it's like to fly in Aion.
Engage in intense raids and encounters with nonplayer opponents, not to mention the opposing player faction.
PvPvE stands for "Player vs. Player vs. Environment." The story of Aionis rife with conflict between factions. Elyos and the Asmodians harborcenturies of hatred. They are now at war with each other, with nothingless than the fate of their entire people in their hands. Largefragments of the Tower of Eternity floating in the Abyss that separatesthe two halves of the shattered world serve as battlefields betweenthese two factions. Players will venture into these areas throughportals they discover as they attain enough experience.
The factions constantly battle for control of fortresses andartifacts within the disputed areas of the Abyss. Each of thesevictories garners bonuses and special resources to the winning side,and player characters can only obtain certain items from vendorsoperating out of these controlled areas. In addition, player characterscan accumulate points and special ranks by defeating other playercharacters and can use these points to acquire better equipment.
The Elyos and the Asmodians are not just battling each other in theAbyss, however. A third faction, the ancient enemy known as the Balaur,also fights for control. Depending on the situation, players may end upbattling the Balaur as well as other players, or there may be timeswhen the Balaur can ally with one faction and fight the other. Otherlethal denizens of the Abyss may also come into play in this constantlychanging skirmish. This ever-changing give and take of multiple forces,enemies, and alliances of convenience is the heart of Aion's PvPvE system.
