Now it is time for another big MMO title to go into open beta. Everyone will be able to test Aion for a week between September 6th to 13th. The game has been up and running very successfully in Asia for a year and has now been reworked to meet a western audience. The game-client is about 9.3GB and can be downloaded from here already now. Currently the FilePlanet version is completely corrupt, so don't try that one until you know it is fixed.
I tend not to enjoy the setting, style and particularly the game play in Asian MMOs, but still looking forward to experience a week with this one.
