Aion: Tower of Eternity

I lately came across the E3 2007 vids of Aion and im pleasantly sursprised.

Take a look youselves:

Clothing trailer (very cool trailer i recommend watching this one first)
http://www.gametrailers.com/player/21405.html

Combat trailer
http://www.gametrailers.com/player/21406.html

Locales trailer
http://www.gametrailers.com/player/21409.html

Interview with faction and class details
http://www.gametrailers.com/player/22472.html

Preview with more details like air combat confirmation
http://pc.gamespy.com/pc/aion/804041p1.html

3 warring factions, one controlled by the AI, the ability to fly with your character by getting wings and air combat make this MMORPG look very promising.

To be released simultanously worldwide in 2008.

well the combat doesn't look bad at all

Actually the whole game looks a lot like FFXI.

Price is the factor for me. I'm not interested in another $15 a month MMO.

Further inspection leads me to believe it's incredibly generic and not worth my time. Good music though.

So how do you go from combat doesnt look bad to looks generic?

Reality all you have to do is ditch WoW lol. Its a pain on level cap anyways

I looked at some more gameplay videos and combat does look fun. Spoted a jump button (really important!) the flight portion i watched seemed on rail though. Was hard to tell, yet the footage is more than a year old so i dont think i should take it too seriously aside from the combat.

Alex did you watch the interview? Seems quite different from other MMO's to have war against an enemy player faction and an AI controlled one. What unlikely alliances will be formed in battle? ^^

Did i mention air combat? Ops silly me better edit the first post.

I watched all the videos, and I'll have to wait on it. I wouldn't get my hopes up if I were you.

Well, like every game it has the chance to be really good or really crap.
Thats why i say at the moment it looks promising. If it will deliver in the end its something were gonna have to see... ;)
