Aion: Ascension (3.0) launched with housing, level cap, mounts and more

Today marks the day Aion goes F2P in the United States and introduces 3.0 content to players. Along with the new F2P, players can now get into housing content, something players have demanded for quite some time — and mounts finally come to the game.

“We started converting current players to the new business model late last week in preparation for today’s launch and we couldn’t be happier with the response, tripling concurrency in a matter of hours,”said Director of Product Management, Edward Chang, Game Publishing Studios, NCsoft. “We spent a considerable amount of time focused on optimizing Aion: Ascension for the Truly Free business model, and early feedback from the community indicates that we made the right decisions.”

Aion also brings in a new feature to players called “C.U.B.E.” (Customizable User Bundling Experience). C.U.B.E. will allow players to customize Aion’s marketplace item bundles based on their characters personal needs. “Aion: Ascension brings players the Atreian Atlas, an advanced guidance system that acts as a personal pathfinder as players progress through the game. The information revealed within the Atreian Atlas provides insight allowing players to properly prepare for what lays ahead, giving the best MMO experience for new and experienced players alike.” NCsoft said.
