News has been trickling in on Aion's upcoming massive update 1.9 that is geared to impress a waning playerbase. While information gets smuggled out by brave NCsoft CMs, Ten Ton Hammer takes a more traditional approach and snags an interview with Aion Producer Chris Hager to find out more on what update 1.9 will bring. Check out details on already announced features and learn about a few new features that will give hopeful players something to look forward to.

Weapon rentals: "We'll have a weapon rental shop with 1.9. If you're in a hurry and you don't have a lot of kinah but have some (or maybe it's a double xp weekend), and you really want to go play with your friends or level up, you can actually go to a merchant and rent better equipment than you have that's on a timer similar to those daily quest rewards. You can go and have fun, and spend a fraction of what you'd spend on buying it."
