As part of their “we’re going on Christmas vacation” post on the official site Aion community managers revealed what they are planning for Aion’s immediate future. One of the programs is the paid account service. For a small fee you will be able to change your character’s appearance, gender, name or your Legion’s name. The exact pricing and service info should be available in February, and the service is scheduled to become available in the first quarter of 2010.
There’s also a promise of new content updates (“a great deal of new content” is what is said in the post), but they are still not ready to reveal any details.
The support services will be working during the Holidays, and everyone else returns to the NCSoft offices January 4th.
Edit: Ah yes, the image of Mr. T in Santa clothes is provided to you completely randomly and has nothing to do with the news post itself. Yes, we are that cool (ed. NOT).
