Aion’s Upheaval begins on June 17th

At a time when players are leery of being nickle-and-dimed, Aion is releasing yet another completely free expansion. Also known as patch 4.8, Upheaval launches in just two weeks on June 17th for all players, opening up Cygnea and Enshar, two brand-new zones filled with equally new creatures and quests. This expansion also introduces two raid instances (Stonespear Reach and Drakensipre Depths) as well as a new land-claiming Territory Battles system for legions. Additional changes include revamps to skills, the Stigma system, and even the skill user interface. And for those Daevas who want to look their best when they finally face Dragon Lord Beritra, there are also new weapon and armor sets.

Want to hear the story behind these newest lands that have risen from their watery prison under the sea? Watch the lore cinematic below, then learn more about all the upcoming changes on the official site.

imayb1 ArtemisiaWS dirtyklingon From what I understood only one is neutral. But I’m not sure cause that was old guesses. :/ I really see what you mean, I stopped playing with 4.0 because I can’t stand full pvp zones, even all zones with rifts were better cause not shared and rifting takes some effort and risk. And then when I returned I kept levelling in Sarpan/Tia, never touched the following ones cause of that design. :/ Without Sarpan and Tia it will really be hard…

ArtemisiaWS dirtyklingon The all-PvP zones post-L55 is the biggest thing for me. Why remove the only PvE zones for high/max level? If the two new zones are all PvE, I’ll be fine but if not… I will not have reasons to play Aion anymore.

Celestia Dargnon MJ Guthrie There’s a mech-like class called aethertech. This pink thing is the mech; it’s considered a weapon.

MJ Guthrie Ah, my Aion-Fu is weak.  Looks like I need to do a little reading.

CristalAion Yeep and yet I didn’t know about it, I feel so guilty for not having known about it when it came out in Korea.
