New MMORPG in the works: AION

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
From the makers of Guild Wars, NCsoft.

Trailers/Info


Believe in Aionâ„¢
Aionâ„¢ is the most visually stunning MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role-playing game) ever made. Cutting-edge graphics redefine your expectations of online role-playing and reveal a true fantasy world where divine beings wage a war that will determine the future of the world.

Your role in this war is pivotal. The fate of the world rests on your shoulders as you and your allies participate in brutal warfare, devise brilliant strategy, and claim political power.

Soar to New Heights
Glide effortlessly through the skies in Aion™. Flying is not just a means of transportation – flight is an extension of the combat system and can be an integral part of taking on your foes in battle. Clash swords high above the ground and use flight-specific skills to defeat your rivals.

Aion™ adds a whole new dimension to combat as you pluck your enemies from the sky, rain down destruction from above, toss your opponent into the air, and more. This isn’t your usual MMORPG combat – you will need to form new strategies to slay your adversary.

PvPvE
Combat in other online role-playing games consists of PvE (Player vs. Environment): fighting computer-controlled monsters, and PvP (Player vs. Player): human-controlled characters fighting each other.

For the first time in the MMORPG genre, Aionâ„¢ brings these two game features together in an evolving and seamless system. PvPvE manages the complex relationships and alliances between realms, races and guilds; it also controls the mighty Dragons, a non-player faction and a common enemy to all players, regardless of faction.

Blending Fantasy and Reality
Aionâ„¢ delivers a new level of graphical detail and world interactivity. Climb sheer cliffs, fly through moving clouds, see water ripple from the downdraft of your own powerful wings and leap gaping chasms. A supremely powerful graphical engine brings the world of your fantasies to life like never before.

The Music of Aionâ„¢
The best movies and games are driven by spectacular music scores and Aion™ is no exception. Ryo Kunihiko, one of the world’s leading composers of movie and television soundtracks, is creating incredible music that seamlessly interweaves with on-screen action, setting the mood and creating the perfect atmosphere for your adventures in the world of Aion™.

Phantasy Star FTW!

I've played PSO on the DC,GC, Xbox, PC, PSOBB, PSU, and even the old PS games on an emulator on my pc, but I still like my Gamecube version the best, that I have spent about 700 hours on O.o

Just realized these guys are also making Guild Wars 2, another Guild Wars expansion, Tabula Rasa, and another City of Heros/Villians expansion! Look out Blizzard NCsoft is gunning for the MMORPG throne!

As far as I'm concerned, they've already got it.

I love how every MMO makes the same promises "Oh the graphics and game play will be like none-other" and then you get into it and you're like "*** this is like every other MMO "

I'll still check it out.
