“NCSOFT is tapping all of its expertise to launch its first mobile RPG in the west with Aion: Legions of War on 24th January. The game puts players in the midst of an epic fantasy conflict, where a practically endless choice of party combinations, attack abilities and equipment are combined with top-quality visuals for an unparalleled RPG experience.”
The game’s been running in
Korea Mexico since 2017, and it’s not specifically being touted as an MMO, in spite of the fact that Aion itself very much is; NCsoft is calling it a strategic “narrative-driven RPG that exudes depth of gameplay with MMO-level complexity.”
“As players build up their collection of heroes, they will find over a billion combinations to bring into battle across a wide range of challenges, including PvP and Guild Dungeons,” the company writes. “All of the intense action in Aion: Legions of War is presented in standard-setting high definition 3D graphics that push the limits of what’s possible on mobile devices.”
Pre-registration is already live, and yes, it’ll land on both Android and iOS here as a free-to-play title.
MMO players will recall that NCsoft also recently announced Aion 2, which will be an MMO and will again be mobile-centric.
