Aion Goes Free-to-Play Feb 28th

Published on February 23rd, 2012

Gameforge has announced that ’s long awaited transition from subscription-only to a free-to-play payment model in Europe will happen on 28th February.

That’s next Tuesday calendar fans!

“The response we received from the beta players on our free-to-play model was fantastic,” said Volker Boenigk, Aion’s executive product director.

“We can’t wait for the launch so that we can finally offer the game to a broader gaming audience. In the upcoming months our focus will be on working on update 3.0, which we will be launching in Europe in the spring.”

Players who’ve already pre-paid their subscription over the coming months will also be given six AION coins every day until their game-time expires. These coins can be subsequently spent in the in-game store which will offer a load of visual customisation options, XP modifiers and other ways to aid your in-game adventures.

To grab the game’s hefty client before launch, head to Aion’s official website.

Aion launched in September 2009 and it’s believed this new payment model will substantially boost the fantasy MMO’s player numbers.
