Aion On Steam

Mystik86Mystik86 Scarborough, ONPosts: 380Member

From reading the announcement that Aion is now available for prepurchase on Steam, one is lead to assume that they are claiming you can play as soon as you download and make an account. Does this mean if you preorder on Steam you can play the game 24/7 or do they mean access to all closed beta events?

    Their are no servers online to play (for the normal preorder people). I doubt that steam has its own privat server so my answer is

     

    no you can't play 24/7 untill the game is released .

    I had assumed this was the case anyways. I was just trying to confirm that Steam wasn't giving enough information...

    I'll look it up myself, getting the game from steam is an interesting proposition. I wonder about the pricing of the CE version, since it will basically be download only.

    From what I can see on the Aion community site (http://aiononline.com) there are several more CBT events listed well into August. I wonder if they're planning on a very short open beta...

    I believe there is a short open beta set for near the end of August. (or sometime in August).

    Doesn't matter to me too much. At this point I have been counting on beta events every two weeks so I've been planning around them. It does suck that we don't get to play all the time though since the game is clearly quite polished already.

    store.steampowered.com/app/29650/


    • 60 euros for the CE edition

    • 50 euros for the normal edition

    Looks like the CE edition is a nobrainer. I wonder how much the boxed CE edition costs though.

    10euro extra is still 20% more :)

    I might check it out when it hits the bargain bin this fall.

    Don't be terrorized! You're more likely to die of a car accident, drowning, fire, or murder! More people die every year from prescription drugs than terrorism LOL!
