Open Beta is only 5 days away. After a flurry of information from Gamescom and the open beta announcements, the official sources have gone pretty silent. I can imagine the NCSOFT offices being busy as a bee hive. But nothing special to report on. Calm before a storm of game playing :).
Things have been interesting on our site though. You probably noticed we launched our Aion giveaway. It was a very busy month preparing all the information and deciding on the format of the site. The giveaway is a pinnacle of months of hard work and we are extremely happy to see 70 people already applying in less then 24 hours. We already put up a Links page that we hope will be populated with all relevant Aion sources.
Although official sources have been fairly silent, the community hasn’t. Swizz the Guru started a great article set on his blog. He’ll be posting a different Aion topic every day for 21 days up until the retail release. The first article can be found here.
Several podcasts have released their latest shows over the weekend. Black Wings of Atreia released Episode #2 – Now Boarding Flight: Aion Airlines, 101! , and Aions World have their 5th episode out with all classes being over-viewed in depth.
For completely Aion non related news we give you the quote of the year (on when will Take Two release GTA 5):
“We’re not going to announce it. We’re not going to announce when we’re going to announce it. And we’re not going to announce the strategy about announcing it or about when we’re going to announce it either, or about the announcement strategy surrounding the announcement of the strategy.
“Any other questions?”
