Aion Vision Trailer

For those of you who haven’t seen the Aion Vision Trailer yet, where have you been?! Anyway, embedded here for convenience, and because I love it! What are general opinions on it? What did you spot?

I hear that this is being released as a series of patches, rather than specifically as a paid-for expansion, but we’ll see if that’s true. It was released at a very good time, closely following 16,000 accounts being banned for RMT or botting, or various other transgressions, and I know a lot of people were beginning to doubt NC Soft or even leaving. Hopefully this stems the tide!

What I can see from this video is the following:

  • Updated graphics settings (shadows, lighting etc)
  • Mounts – you can grab them mid-combat, and it appears some can engage in combat
  • New flight animations
  • Improved combat animations
  • New skillchains/skills
  • New weapons – crossbow for example
  • Housing – player or legion
  • Swimming and underwater regions
  • New zones

There’s another blog entry about it over at Quirky Quiescence, take a peek!

    Agreed 100% on the paying for expansions on top of monthly payments. Main reason I took so much time off of WoW back when they first released TBC. Aren’t the monthly fees supposed to go towards more than just weekly maintenance, bug fixes, and ticket support? Heh 🙂

    That video is just amazing. It’s really great to have confirmation that the game really does have a great future ahead and they aren’t slacking off. 🙂

      Exactly! If we’re paying monthly, we deserve nice things in return every now and then. And considering the lack of ticket support…*cough* Let’s not go there. 😉

      Exactly, I can’t wait to see this get released. Fingers crossed it all goes smoothly, and soon!

    I don’t mean to be “that guy”, but I’m HIGHLY skeptical of this video. Part of me can’t help but think that this is just a marketing scheme to keep people subscribed, and that we won’t see most of this material for a long time.

    Perhaps I’m just being a bitter old Rer, anyways, this will be EXCELLENT material for Episode #6 of the Epic Elyos Podcast on, make sure to listen in!

    • Psyche Says:

      There are bound to be some people being skeptical, it’s only natural. 🙂 I personally didn’t immediately think that it was some kind of conspiracy and we’d never see the updates, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they didn’t release them for a very long time, or in small updates over the course of the next, say, two years, in which case the content wouldn’t be so shocking.

      I’ll have to have a listen, thanks!
