See it here.

Sweet!  ^_^

    Good news indeed. Sry for being a bum, but can anyone link the patch notes?

    Knite has a more complete post on Aionsource.com also explains that 1.3 stuff translated earlier was actually 1.5 updates. O.o

    Woot woot for us that follow the team on Twitter :) I'm EXTREMELY excited to hear this. We're going to have an amazing release, 8 days after my birthday as well.. going to be badass.

    These are the most amazing news we could receive, this game will release with better endgame than 5 year old games, there won't be anyone complaining about grind, and the character customization (both physical and skills) will be pretty balanced and good to go.

    This is THE reason the game is taking so damn long to release, not because of localization or any such nonsence. This is Awsome news! I can't wait more now than ever.......I think I'm getting hives.

    Wow, that's awesome. Looked over the patch notes and it sounds cool -- the idea of timed dungeons under the castle for the owners is really nice.

    Seems like there will be plenty of content when the game releases.

    the one thing I hate about MMOs is the time right before release.  they hype them so well, its hard to wait.  most non MMOs I only really want to get maybe, the week of their release.  MMOs I have to wait on for years, and at the end I just feel like Cartman in the Wii episode.

    Everything creates huge amounts of negativity on the internet, that's what the internet is for: Negativity, porn and lolcats.

    Pretty excited to hear the news. I honestly think with how smooth the launch is going to be, and the state of the game in 1.5 is really going to seal the deal and really push any doubt out of mind about Aion not releasing a AAA title and getting the attention it deserves. It's going to be too hard for it not to with the amount of polish the game is getting ready to launch with.



    Unheard of in this genre, isn't it?

    So they are going to put in a battleground. I really hope it doesn't take away from world PVP, or Abyss PVP. The one thing that killed WoW for me was the introduction of BG's. Everyone stayed in the BG's and the world was empty except those questing. I really think they could do without this.

    Read the patch notes and you will see that it will not happen.

    Very interesting, same version as Korea. Hope they keep it up with something close to simultaneous worldwide updates like GW.

    Nice to see they are working on giving us the best they can, not releasing a game in "pay to beta test" stage.

    It's not a battleground - it's an instance.  Did you ever play DAoC?  If so, you remember Darkness Falls - it's very much like that.  You can choose to face your enemy, if they're Asmodians or Elyos, or you can use the instance against them and attack them when the time is right.  Basically, you're fighting over who gets to run the instance.  It's a 3-way battle to the death.  And since the enemy spawns at the beginning of the ship, one instance run could take a while, unless you try to burn through it to kill the Dreadgion Captain.

    It sounds amazing.  I am soooo pumped about 1.5.  What a good move by NCSoft, waiting until they're ready to release with this update.  Amazing.  Simply amazing.  I can't wait.

    I am pretty stoked about this too. This really puts a lot of  the past chat about "localization" taking too long to bed.  I give this a thumbs up.

    We aren't dealing with a third party publishing company like the chinese client, really shouldn't expect nothing less.

    I don't get why everyone is so excited about...with each patch NCsoft carebears the hell out of this great game, they have gimped rifts, they have offered an alternate to PVP end game...they basically handed it over to the babies.  I want danger I don't want to feel safe, and right now the Korean version is a great big hug fest....why can't they give us L II PVP?  This game is going to be ruined by carebears and Role Players.

    Epic fail NCsoft...Epic fail.
