Quite possibly the “most visually beautiful MMORPG” ever made (see screenshots below).
Massively Multiplayer (MMP)
Believe in Angels. Believe in Demons.
Believe in Aion.
In the beginning, all things were in Chaos.
And from Chaos was born Order.
And Order begat light
And Order divided itself against the darkness
And this division caused the material universe to be created.
And this universe is balanced with Chaos and Order, and it separates them also.
And this universe is perfect.
In Aion, players are divided between those that are “The Chosen” and those that are “The Fallen.” The Tower of Eternity exists as a gateway into the Abyss, and acts as a portal between dimensions. When a great evil opens the gateways, it awakens the Dragons imprisoned within the Abyss, who seek revenge on both worlds. It is here that an epic conflict begins, as you take your first steps on a journey to bring salvation to the world.
Aion™ is the most visually beautiful MMORPG ever made. In this ethereal world, you will have the power to direct dynamic relationships between angels, demons and dragons to control the fate of the world. You will evolve Aion’s™ storylines through social, economic and cultural experiences that are both interactive and cinematic.
Experience an exciting change in the way players can interact with their environment within a massively multiplayer world. With the power of the Crytec™ game engine, you will be able to climb sheer cliffs and fly through moving clouds. From weather effects to heat waves to foaming shorelines, the level of detail you will experience will simply amaze you.
This game will transform the way you experience new content. The actions of every player on each individual server will push storylines toward new directions. As these actions accumulate, they will eventually trigger which will then further change the game’s economies and alliances. Players will create their own distinct history and will have their names forever recorded in fame or infamy.
Aion is a game that knows no cultural boundaries, and will provide an art style, story and game mechanics that will last through the ages and be appreciated by a global audience.
