We’re very excited by the demand we’ve seen for Aion overall, both in our beta test events and in preorders and presales of the game. We specifically have seen incredible demand for the Limited Collector’s Edition version of the game, of which we are producing 50,000 copies in North America and Europe. In some cases, retailers in both territories have indeed sold out of their allotments. However, there are still copies available and the best way to ensure you can get your hands on a collector’s edition before launch is to preorder it today either from brick & mortar and online retail outlets, or you can order the digital limited edition version of Aion from digital retailers. Go to Aiononline.com for a list of our retail partners.
As a reminder, those who preorder the game today are given access to the remaining beta events leading up to the game’s launch in September. We’ve been incredibly happy with the response we’ve seen to our beta testing thus far, which began a little over a month ago. The beta test events have not only been a great way for players to get a taste of what promises to be the biggest MMO of 2009, but has also provided NCsoft with the ability to identify issues and ultimately ensure the best MMO experience possible at Aion’s launch.
