It’s finally here. The silence is over about the localization process of Aion’s next big update as NCSOFT just teased the arrival of 5.0 to the western regions.
Aion players in NA and EU were already getting the Korean updates at an accelerated rate compared to the earlier days of the MMORPG and now, not long after the arrival of 4.9, we can once again be happy about the next big thing’s implementation.
In Aion 5.0 Echoes of Eternity, players will be taken back to the well-known Towers of Eternity as we begin to restore our memories from the Cataclysm era. There are plenty of mysteries to uncover and this amazing expansion will be raising the level cap to 75. You can expect a great deal of new content to arrive along with the expansion.
The Archives of Eternity instance will finally allow us to enter the Tower of Eternity for the first time in Aion’s history. Two new zones will also be implemented, Norsvold and Iluma. These are claimed to be “locked in time at the base of the tower…”
NCSOFT further added, “Coming soon to Atreia, Echoes of Eternity. Keep your eye on the website for more details in the coming days and weeks.”
For now, we don’t have any information about release dates and not much has been said about Gameforge’s EU version but we can confidently say that Aion 5.0 Echoes of Eternity is coming soon, possibly in a few months’ time. We will do our best to inform you as soon as we manage to get our hands on some fresh news about the expansion.
