Daeva Gideon Posted February 15, 2018 Daeva Share Posted February 15, 2018 Greetings Daevas! It’s been a busy few months for Aion. We kicked off 2018 with our 5.8 launch, Aion: Heart of Frost, while in Korea, our mother studio launched the next chapter – Aion 6.0. While Aion 5.8 brought many new additions and changes, it also introduced some issues which we are working on with the dev team. Aion 6.0 It’s exciting to see so much discussion about Aion 6.0 since it was announced and subsequently launched. With the 6.0 update, Aion Korea has transitioned from a subscription model to a free-to-play model, along with making sweeping changes to game systems, landscape, and more. You may be wondering what does this mean for our service and how does it impact you as a player? First, a lot of really awesome things are coming – for a few examples, enchantment will become less risky and character leveling will be streamlined with a much easier progression curve. There are some pretty significant economy changes as well, so we are working with the dev team to identify how they will affect players and how we can improve the transition. The key to any major update is properly taking care of the veteran players who have stuck with us this whole time, who love Aion and have made it their home. Our aim is that the transition into the changed Atreia of 6.0 is as smooth as possible, and that all our players find a game that feels renewed, engaging, and fun, while retaining the unmistakable soul of Aion. XIGNCODE3 In a previous producer’s letter, I briefly mentioned another project that should improve our player experience, and we’re finally at a point where we can make a public announcement. Over the past several months, our development, security and operations teams have been hard at work implementing XIGNCODE3 with the North American Aion client. XIGNCODE3 is a powerful anti-cheat tool that is being utilized in another of NCSOFT’s titles, Blade & Soul, and this launch is a major step for us in addressing the hacking situation in Aion. We’ve kept in touch with the Blade & Soul team regarding the various challenges and successes they’ve had since launching XIGNCODE3, and are dedicated to ensuring the best possible experience for our players. Look for more information on this very soon. XIGNCODE3 for Aion will be released with the February 21st patch. Up Next We’re still a ways off from Aion 6.0 launching in the West, but in the meantime we’re excited to have a few brand new events coming up over the next few months. Among these are Daeva Dash, a special 3v3 racing instance, and the return of Tiamaranta’s Eye. Thanks for reading! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
