Combat in Aion

Aion might be as pretty as Lucy Liu, but can it kick ass?

Yesterday we showed you some of the beautiful backdrops and landscapes of Aion: Tower of Eternity. Chances are, however, you don't play MMORPGs to tour the glorious vistas. This video is all about combat in Aion, melee, ranged, magic, pet-based, and PvP combat. As the game is under development by Studio 5 and NCSoft in Seoul, you'll see some interesting Korean cuneiform in the user interface.

Unfortunately, one of Aion's most interesting combat mechanics - aerial or "winged" combat - is currently undergoing development While combat in the unfriendly skies didn't make the trailer, you'll see a number of other, more traditional fighting mechanics in Aion's fluidly attractive Asian styling.
