Aion 3.5 presentation video and 4.0 reveals!

During our visit to GamesCom 2012 in Cologne, Germany, we were treated to a full presentation and session with the Korean developers, courtesy of Gameforge. We were shown loads of footage from Aion 3.5 including lots of information about what is new and exciting in that patch. Being insatiable for new Aion information we had to ask about Aion 4.0, although Aion 3.5 was just now launched in Korea. To our surprise we got not only an answer but two major reveals. You can watch all this in our video of the presentation or read the recap bellow:

Aion 3.5

  • Two new end-game dungeons finishing the story arc started in 3.0
  • The first dungeon is versus Tiamat’s generals and lets you get gear which will enable you to face Tiamat herself
  • The second dungeon is the fight versus dragon lady Tiamat and for one month since launch in Korea less than 10% of players succeeded in defeating the event
  • You will get mythic weapons from Tiamat (only mythic grade items in game).
  • New kind of rifts in the game with attacker/defender system and quests available
  • Two new arenas with high replay value
  • The first arena will give you the key to enter the second arena

Aion 4.0

  • Three new classes
  • One class will wield a gun
  • One class will wield a musical instrument
  • Third class is still being kept secret
  • 4.0 will concentrate on PvP and RvR content

Aion 4.0 to have three new classes!

We are at GamesCom, Europe’s biggest gaming event and of course, we went to see what’s new with Aion (and take some community questions along the way). We were very happy to find out that among the people present are Aion developers from Korea. They were always very happy to come and meet the European players and this year’s Gamescom was no exception. We talked about patch 3.5 and what it brings to the game (did someone say dragon lady Tiamat – the hardest boss ever to be introduced to the game?). We had some great footage shown from the patch (with a promise from Gameforge people that this will reach European players much, much sooner) and it was a pleasure meeting the people that actualy make this game. The best was saved (of course) for last. In an exclusive reveal we learned that Aion 4.0 patch will introduce three new classes! One of the classes will be a gun wielding class (!), while the other will have a musical instrument as a weapon (!!!). The last one is still under wraps, but I think this reveal is great on its own. You will have to wait for a while until we prepare the video of the interview and the presentation, but we will be releasing that very soon.

Quests and Items Database Updated to 3.0

In anticipation of the upcoming release of Aion 3.0 on the European servers I am glad to announce that Aion Life has had its Quests and Items databases updated to the game version 3.0. I believe we are the only Aion database website that has done this. We are aiming to provide you with the German and French versions of the quests database as well in the upcoming weeks. Unfortunately, we were not able to provide the German and French versions alongside the English one because the data was not present in the Aion 3.0 client. We hope this will change with the official release of the EU Aion 3.0 version. We also introduced a brand new design for Aion Life. This is our first redesign in years and I hope you like the cleaner and bigger look. We are still working out some kinks with spacing and old systems, but we hope to have these ironed out along with the French and German database releases. I hope you find our improvements enjoyable and that you will find our website useful while you adventure through the Atreia.
