Coming this Spring with Aion’s patch 3.0, it will be available for free.
Also some new things that will be available in this patch include mounts, new instances, a raid, player housing and a level cap increase. While you will still have to purchase the game as far as I am aware, it will be free-to-play rather than the usual $15 per month fee. If you were a previous player of Aion you will receive Veteran benefits.
My thanks to IGN for this update.
What do you think of this? Will you try Aion out?
