With AION Classic, players will return to the game’s foundations and relive the war between the Elyos and Asmodians, while also dealing with the ever-present threat of the Balaur lurking at the threshold to the Abyss Gate.
With the European launch of the MMORPG’s classic server, the goal is to introduce the content of the original AION based on a polished version of 1.9 with consolidated fixes and balancing incorporated into the release candidate.
In time, Gameforge expects people across Europe to experience the same original adventures and remember exactly why AION is beloved by millions of players around the world.
AION Classic is a permanent server that offers all MMORPG lovers a fresh start in the world of Atreia, along with additional balancing and quality-of-life improvements. Players new and old will explore the vast and unique realm of Atreia, discover and enjoy iconic dungeons, alongside taking part in the battle between Elyos and Asmodians.
What to expect from AION Classic:
- Enjoy PvE content up to level 50 on various maps and instances like Dark Poeta, the Baranath Dredgion, and more!
- Charge into battle with massive PvP content including Rifts, Dredgions, and Fortress Battles
- Take to the skies and prepare for flying combat in the Abyss
- Choose different professions to craft gear and consumables
Like in other regions, the Siel’s Energy and Daeva Pass features will be available to provide additional rewards. Additionally, exclusive content such as the new dungeons or the recently added new classes will also be introduced in future updates for AION Classic.
AION Classic Livestream: Join the AION team as they invite players who wish to know more about the upcoming launch in Europe. Audiences can tune in on Twitch on February 17 at around 18:00 CET. The hosts will answer questions about the update during the live Q&A.
AION is a visually stunning, free-to-play MMORPG where you ascend to divinity and fight in a decades-long war between two rival factions. Wielding divine powers and the capability for true flight, you must bring salvation to your people and restore balance to the vast and beautiful world of Atreia, now shattered by the Cataclysm.
AION Classic will become available free to play for PC towards the end of March 2023.
