Aion: Open Beta Client Available for Download!

MikeBMikeB Community ManagerAdministrator RarePosts: 6,528

The Open Beta for Aion won't begin until September 6th, but that doesn't mean you can't be prepared. As such, NCsoft have made the open beta client available in advance so you can be all ready to go once the big day comes!

The client is available through a number of distributors and methods. You can grab it over at FilePlanet, or later this week at GamersHell. Also, NCsoft has made available a torrent download and patch for those interested in going the P2P (peer to peer!) route.

The official announcement can be viewed here.

    I've been hearing that this open-beta is only for pre-orders and FilePlanet subscribers. That doesn't make any sense, as it is an open beta. I finished my download but I would like a confirmation on whether or not this is a completely open beta. Then again, I'm probably going to pre-order it before the OB anyway... Just what I need, another MMO destroying another year of academics :p

    From the sounds of it, a true open beta, but I am honestly not 100% sure.

    This is correct, unless you are a pre-order or a fileplanet subscriber, you can not play.

  • Xyfire1Xyfire1 Member Posts: 128

    The full client is 9.5gb

  • ak282ak282 Member Posts: 21

    Wow sounds like a true OPEN beta to me *-.-

     Well that just turned me off.  I was thinking of looking at this game, but if you have "pay" for the open beta, not going to do it.  Good luck with your game experience.

    Do I have to reinstall the client if I participated in Closed Beta, or can I simply launch the NCsoft launcher and let it do its thing?

    Oh for frack's sake.  Why does NC soft have to play so many games to play in a friggin BETA?!  Seriously?  I'm sorry I'm not paying money to beta TEST your friggin game.  Because if I do pay I can't get my money back if I think it sucks.  

    So yeah unless they remove this bloody Pay Beta program fixed I saw screw them.

    It is for those who preordered ja prepurchased the game. Though FilePlanet is giving out free open beta keys starting at 1st of September so if you haven't bought you try to get key from there.

  • brezelbrezel Member Posts: 202

     

    you need a key to play it. at the moment, you have to pay for a key lol, what a negative impression. phishing.

  • FdzzaiglFdzzaigl Member UncommonPosts: 2,433

    I heard there are other sites giving out keys as well. Although I don't know which ones.

     

    This kind of sucks, I'm not going to preorder this game, but would really like to test out what improvements have been made with the new patch.

     

    Feel free to use my referral link for SW:TOR if you want to test out the game. You'll get some special unlocks!
