NCsoft has given a comprehensive list of changes that will take place in the latest patch 1.5 for the MMO, Aion, which will feature in the upcoming open beta test.Players who were on the closed beta test will notice a large addition of content and features in patch 1.5, which is much closer to the version that Aion will launch with later this month. The European and NA client will match the version that players in Korea have, where the game has been live since last year.The Aion team has apparently done a lot more work on westernisation, and players will notice many changes from the CBT client. The terminology of many skills and items has been overhauled too.Players are advised that Aion devs will be balancing races on servers during the OBT, so if the population of either race grows too fast when the servers open, players may receive a “This race cannot be created” message. Once the balance has evened out, the message will be removed again.Anyone who played the CBT will probably not be surprised to learn that one of the most requested features during the testing was to allow the left mouse button to move the camera. This has been implemented, along with many other features including:New Areas: Theobomos (Elysea) and Brusthonin (Asmodae)
New Instances
Over 40 new default faces have been added to character creation.
Increased PvPvE rewards
UI changes (click-to-move has been disabled by default)
New items
New skills + increased balance
Tons of new quests.
Advanced Stigma Stone System
Chat Channels: Class, Region, Looking For Group, LanguagesThe full list of patch notes can be found on the official Aion site.The OBT kicks off on Sunday 6 September at 5pm British Summer Time and runs until 13 September. The game goes on sale on 22 September in NA, 25 September in the UK. For a good look at the game, be sure to check out our series of Aion hands-on previews.
