Aion's 2.5 Empyrean Calling update is now available on the player test server and will be arriving on live EU and NA servers on May 25th, 2011. To celebrate the new content, NCsoft will be holding a number of mini-events on live servers as the update's launch approaches. Aion players can head over to the test server this week to give the update a look and sample the latest content.
The 2.5 includes a new high quality graphics engine option, two new instances with Esoterrace and the multi-staged Empyrean Crucible, new items, skills, quests and a lot more. Additionally, a new video has been released that offers a look at what the 2.5 update has to offer and a sneak peek at the upcoming 3.0 update. Check out the video with its catchy almost EverQuest-like theme it out after the break.
