'Aion' Goes Back To Its Roots With Classic Edition

by Rainier on June 9, 2021 @ 1:11 p.m. PDT

Aion: The Tower of Eternity is the ultimate MMORPG with strengthened interaction between players. Aion’s world consists of 3 realms - the heavens, the devildom and the dragon realm. Players will experience dynamic communications with the world of Aion as they conduct strategic battles.

In Aion, gamers explore a celestial world of breath-taking beauty and epic adventure. Players create either winged Elyos or Asmodian avatars, sworn enemy races that discover a common foe: the twisted and depraved Balaur.

In Aion, players experience the thrill of flight as a strategic and integral part of gameplay that touches combat, quests, and exploration. In addition to unprecedented character customization and unmatched visuals, Aion invites players to soak up its breath-taking world through exploration of more than 1,500 quests, intense visceral combat, and a deep crafting system. For the first time in an MMO, Aion introduces a new game system that pits players against each other and their environment simultaneously in an otherworld zone called the Abyss.

Experience the realm of Atreia as if it were new, as the battle between light and dark begins once more in Aion: Classic.

The new service for the vaunted MMORPG Aion provides a fresh start as the game originally was when it launched in the Americas back in 2009, with some additional quality of life improvements. Players new and old can take flight to explore the massive, unique realm of the god Aion, hunt and venture on quests, or take a side in the battle between light and dark and fight other players.

Aion Classic will see the return of some of the games early, iconic dungeons, and only the original four character classes will be available to players (each with their two original subclasses). Keeping with the ethos of classic MMORPG experiences, the player progression in Aion Classic will be moderately paced, to increase opportunities for players to explore the world of the Asmodians and the Elyos.

Aion Classic will have a subscription-based model for players as well as a free to play option. By purchasing Siel’s Aura with real money, players will be able to buy recurring subscriptions of 30, 90, or 365 days. There’s also a 3-day pass available. The free option for players is available to everyone, but those players will gain experience slower than subscribers. Aion Classic will also have a Battle Pass, the Daeva Pass, which provides extra quests and rewards, and its own premium currency, Quna, which can be used to purchase cosmetic and consumable items, account services, and unlock the premium Daeva Pass tier.

Aion Classic also is a return to Aion’s unique rifting PVP, where portals open up between the realms of Asmodae and Elysea, providing PVP-specific quests and its own PVP currency, which can be used to buy special rewards and also contributes to player ranking. Faction-based Fortress sieges also round out the PVP experience in Aion Classic, where players from competing factions fight over control of objectives. Winners will earn special rewards.

Aion Classic will launch in the Americas on June 23, 2021, and Founders Packs are now available.
