NCsoft are so confident with Aion: Tower of Eternity's Korean launch that beta trials here in the West will be short lived and sporadic, with open beta this August.
Five beta bursts are planned, with each worth just three days of play except for the last open beta slot which gets four. This likely means an autumn release for Aion, much to fans' delight.
The closed/open dates are as follows, courtesy of:
- June 19-21: Closed, Asmodian faction, level cap 10
- July 3-5: Closed, Asmodian faction, level cap raised
- July 17-19: Closed, The Abyss (PvP zone, high-level)
- August 14-17: Open, first phase
- August 19-23: Open, second phase
Will you be looking to partake of Aion's beta?
