NCsoft Reveals Release Date for Aion’s Highly Anticipated Free Expansion – Aion®: Assault on Balaurea™



Aion Players in North America and Europe can begin exploring the world far beyond the traditional territories of Asmodae and Elysea beginning September 7th.



Today, NCsoft, the world's premier publisher and developer of Massively Multiplayer Online games (MMOs), unveiled the official release date for Aion: Assault on Balaurea, the next exciting chapter in Aion that entrenches players into a rich storyline in which their actions will determine the fate of the world. Aion: Assault on Balaurea releases digitally to PCs in North America and Europe on Sept. 7, 2010, however, players looking for retail boxed copies of the full game featuring exclusive in-game pets will find them at select retailers in North America on Sept. 7 and on Sept. 10 in Europe.


In Aion: Assault on Balaurea, the exciting new chapter of Aion, characters have the ability to align together to launch massive counter assaults against the invading Balaur on their homeland while experiencing new and updated instances and zones, an increased level cap, new weapons and items, new skills and added flight mechanics. Characters will not be alone as they explore the new areas, as Aion introduces functional pets equipped with in-game benefits.


Unlike any MMO before it, Aion is a uniquely crafted online gaming experience where flight offers much more than just a way to gracefully explore the landscape - it is a strategic and integral part of combat, quests, and exploration. Players will use flight to dive into battle and plunge through thousands of unique, story-driven quests, all while trying to save and control a world literally shattered in half from centuries of brutal conflict.

The servers have been combined giving that extra boost we needed. Also the game is to huge in European countys and Korea to take it down.

You know, the more I read the post, the more I thought "This sounds a hell of a lot like the BC expansion..."

NCSoft needs to stop worrying about Aion and get back to finishing GW2! lol

I'm not hating lol, I just said it's oddly similar to the first WoW expansion xP

Besides, we all know as well as I do that as soon as GW2 (and TOR) come out, all other MMOs will be barren for a while...

This expansion is based on events in the game already. Its based on the story line of Aion. If you played the game you would understand it. Anyway, No matter what WOW comes out with Aion will always look better and be more fun . To me atleast. :)

That may be, but that expansion sounds vaguely similar to the Burning Crusade expansion from WoW. Case in point:

"begin exploring the world far beyond the traditional territories of Asmodae and Elysea"

Sounds a helluva lot like the introduction of Outland in BC.

" the next exciting chapter in Aion that entrenches players into a rich storyline in which their actions will determine the fate of the world. "

Sounds like the story of the Burning Legion coming to Azeroth and trying to claim it as their own.

"have the ability to align together to launch massive counter assaults against the invading Balaur on their homeland while experiencing new and updated instances and zones, an increased level cap, new weapons and items, new skills and added flight mechanics."

Because none of that screams BC for those of you who know the story behind BC...ok, sure.

"Unlike any MMO before it, Aion is a uniquely crafted online gaming experience where flight offers much more than just a way to gracefully explore the landscape - it is a strategic and integral part of combat, quests, and exploration. "

You know, that's great if the flight is incorporated into the combat & attacks itself, but it's a pretty bold (and false) claim to say that no other MMO uses flight as a mechanic to quest and explore more easily.

"trying to save and control a world literally shattered in half from centuries of brutal conflict. "

Again, sounds like the Draenei and their fight against Kil'jaden and his section of the Burning Legion.


"This expansion is based on events in the game already. Its based on the story line of Aion."

So are BC and WotLK.

"Anyway, No matter what WOW comes out with Aion will always look better and be more fun . To me atleast."

Have you actually tried playing through the WoW? It's not that different from GW, or TR, or Age of Conan, or Aion, or any other MMO out there. You know why? Because every decent MMO borrows from every other decent MMO. It's not a bad thing, it's actually very good if they have any hope to be successful, because there's a bar already set in place to reach. You can't say Aion doesn't borrow some elements from WoW (and from what I've gathered from simply observing and listening, it borrows quite a bit), because it would actually be a bad move on their part. And you really can't complain about graphics, especially since 1/2 of us are willing to return to games like Renegade or Gunbound when we're bored. Not to mention, WoW's graphics have significantly improved, and will continue to do so with the coming expansion.

So, pbbbbbbbt to you xP

Yes I tried wow and didnt really enjoy it much. I like Aion because it reminds me of Guildwars but better.
Look im not dissing your WOW , I just prefer Aion. And as far as the Grafix. Im sorry Aion blows WOW out of the water. Im sorry but it does.
And I like my clan family to play as well.
That is all.

kthxbaialso, considering my laptop can run GW just fine, and people's (*cough* Ika *cough*) claims that Aion graphics and GW graphics arent different enough that I could run it, I don't understand what's so spectacular about them.The video below explains why your actions are futile.
