The release of Aion
marks the beginning of a long anticipated story--your own. We are
introducing a wide array of new functions in our website to provide
more player-focused information for Aion.
Have you ever been dying to show off some of your character's new
equipment to a friend quickly and easily? We have gone to great lengths
to make this as easy as it should be. Aiononline.com
will soon be updated with a quick character search function and
detailed character pages that will allow you and others to view your
characters with all their accoutrements directly in a browser. You will
also be able to view server statistics and Abyss Rankings in order to
follow your own and your friends' progress through the game--or to find
out what numbers you need to beat to reach the top!
Aion's official forums will let you socialize with fellow
gamers. They will supplement the forums of our fansites to make an
excellent medium through which you can get to know other players from
the servers you play on.
We will also continue to update and improve the PowerWiki, which
will go through numerous changes as we transition to the new website.
Its layout will be updated, a lot of new content will be added, and the
search function will be improved beyond the previous one.
Aiononline.com is suiting up - and you're invited.
Aion's Head Start is right around the corner. Details surrounding thePreselection program of Aion were very recently announced, but is only one of the benefits of preordering. Those of you who preordered the game will very soon not only be able to access Preselection, where they can create characters and reserve names, but also to leap into the game and explore the world before everyone else. Head Start opens up Aion's full feature set and allows preorder buyers to play the game just as if it was released a couple of days earlier.
Head Start begins on September 20th 12:00 p.m. PDT (more) and runs until release. The official release date of Aion is on September 22nd in North America and September 25th in Europe.
Aion's release is right around the corner, and our anticipation is running high! The beards and hairstyles of the character creator are groomed and lined up, jostling against each other in eagerness to be picked for your characters in this coming weekend's Preselection and Head Start Programs.
Preselection is a benefit available to anyone who preordered Aion. If you are not sure whether or not you are eligible, simply log in to your NCsoft Master Account to verify that your game account is listed and your account type is notdesignated as "Beta".
Starting 12:00 p.m. PDT (more) on September 18, 2009, eligible players will be able to start their game clients and log in to create a total of two characters ahead of everyone else. You can name and create these two characters through the standard character creator and be ready to play with these characters right when the game Head Start Program begins (but not beforehand). Preselection will end 9:00 a.m. PDT on September 20, 2009 (more).
