Steel Cavalry the next Aion expansion

aion 4.5 steel cavalry

NCSoft unveiled the name of the next free Aion expansion Steel Cavalry, which will introduce the final new class into the game Aethertech. The expansion will also bring two new instances to challenge players.

The Illuminary Obelisk
Built to protect Katalam from an outside attack, The Illuminary Obelisk is a point of strategic interest. The Obelisk houses a shielding device that has been sabotaged by Beritra’s 43rd Destruction Unit. Daevas must bolster their forces and advance on the Obelisk to regain control of its defensive power if they hope to repair the shielding unit and turn the tides of war in their favor.

Iron Wall Warfront
Governor Pashid held a slim victory over the Eternal Bastion, but had suffered heavy losses from previous battles...

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...

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...

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 a...

RaiderZ

I know, this is not Aion related. Still, I thought I should share this with the Aion community. It is this new MMORPG game coming from Korea called RaiderZ. We visited Gameforge’s booth at Gamescom 2012 primarily for Aion news, but we were also curious about RaiderZ. You see, they have these big bosses scattered around the world that drop special loot and I wanted to find out more about the game. If you are like me you can watch the video presentation of the game bellow where we found out about the following:

  • Game’s background story detailed
  • Gamescom Raiderz game trailer
  • Character creation and customization (cool tattoo system)
  • Raiderz fighting styles (character classes that you can mix and match)
  • Combat is skill based (dodge, aim and positioning play a huge role)
  • Crafting is done by...

Interview with Aion EU Executive Product Director

We had the honor of sitting down with Mr. Volker Boenigk, Team Aion EU Executive Product Director, during Gamescom 2012. This was a very special interview for us because we met the person that is among the most responsible people for operation of Aion in Europe. Just a few days before that Aion 3.0 launched in Europe (being several months late to its United States counterpart) and developers from Korea were just a few feet from us talking about Aion 3.5 and even Aion 4.0. We asked the European Aion community to give us their questions to ask them directly to the people running the game. We felt it was important to make that direct connection between the players and Gameforge and make their concerns heard...
