Aion Producer Talks 3.0 and Truly Free

Posted Fri, Mar 23, 2012 by Martuk

Aion Producer Adam Christensen recently sat down for a chat about the upcoming Truly Free business model and 3.0 Ascension update set to arrive next month. Christensen discusses the decision to move Aion into the free-to-play market and what players can expect to find with the new 3.0 update. Check out the full interview after the break.



Playing Aion now and it's quite enjoyable...more so "surprisingly" than my experience in the TERA Beta this weekend.

Where TERA's fighting mechanic might sound good and different on paper, the reality of trying to play on a KB&M using WSAD to navigate and trying to use Number keys to launch Skills all while aiming with the mouse...way too much interference and hassle imo

Will be interesting to see how the Beta player react over all, perhaps I'm a minority in my opinion...

All I know is I'm enjoying a more traditional UI and control scheme/mechanic in Aion.

Regards & Good Hunting All

Yeah, the Tera beta is less than impressive. They advertise "action combat", but it's not significantly different from typical mmo combat.
