Aion 4.0 Launches Tomorrow (Now Today) - Get Hype!
I am so excited for Aion 4.0 I have shunned my other MMORPG vices for launch. Do I do new content on my Chanter? Do I reroll to Songweaver or Gunslinger? I just don't know, and most Aion players either aren't sure just yet or will be trying to do both.
The 4.0 patch will mark the largest update the game has seen to date, and will be the first time Aion will see new classes tossed into the fray. That alone is exciting enough, but the massive amount of level 60 to 65 content making its way to the game overshadows even the excitement of new character classes.
The North American 4.0 launch will contain Korean patch 4.0.3, which includes 11 new instances to tackle. Saja from the game's production team answered some player questions on the official forums a couple of weeks ago, and his answers are well-worth the read if you find yourself getting antsy for answers over the next 24 hours.
The answers in the thread are extensive, but there are three things the impatient Daeva should note as we wait for release:
- The patch is scheduled for release at standard maintenance time, but is subject to change. Maintenance is scheduled to end at 11:30AM PDT/2:30PM EDT.
- The patch cannot be downloaded until it goes live.
- Patch notes will be similarly released when it goes live.
With this information on-hand, it is highly recommended you pay heed to the North American Aion Twitter account through tomorrow for the latest information on server status and direct links to further information and patch notes.
Aion will never be the same again after tomorrow. Are you ready for the new classes and whole new struggle to reach endgame? If you're a bit behind on what Aion 4.0 entails, there is plenty of information to be found on Massively, Daeva's Report, the Dark Betrayal site, and here on GameSkinny. Time to play the waiting game.
