Some of the most momentous occasions in MMORPGs aren’t when players are invited to explore strange, new zones, but when the community comes back to a familiar and beloved locale for a ground-shaking event. This is what might be in the making for Aion 5.0: Echoes of Eternity when it releases on July 13th.
The Echoes of Eternity expansion will travel back to the Tower of Eternity to “to recover lost memories from the Cataclysm and discover a truth that will forever change the destiny of Atreia.” Flowery language aside, the update is going to raise the level cap, welcome players inside the Tower for the first time, and add two more zones to the game.
In the meantime, the game is recruiting hard with its Homeward Bound event. During the event, which runs through June 25th, new and returning players will be given extra goodies while everyone can run a daily mission to get additional transformation candy boxes. Aion is single-handedly keeping the dental industry in business at this point.
