Gameforge and NCsoft are inviting all players to take an exclusive tour around the public test server. Future features, like the housing system or mounts, can be tested and new areas can be entered on this server. All players interested in extensively testing new features and content before the official launch of AION 3.0, can immediately download the English test client from AION’s official website.
After installation you can log in with your existing account data. New characters do have to be created on the test server, however, a strong EXP bonus ensures that all players can quickly benefit from the new content.
Just like in a beta test, the AION team will collect the players’ feedback, therefore improving the quality of the update. This means that the official update may deviate from the test phase. The created characters will not be available anymore at the end of the test phase.
AION is Asian premium game development studio NCsoft’s most successful MMO game and remains one of the most popular titles in Korea.

John is the founder and Editor in Chief at DSOGaming. He is a PC gaming fan and highly supports the modding and indie communities. Before creating DSOGaming, John worked on numerous gaming websites. While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2. John has also written a higher degree thesis on the "The Evolution of PC graphics cards."
