Steel Cavalry Coming Next Week!


Many of you have been asking us when Steel Cavalry is coming. Today, we answered that question. Even better, we gave you a release date that’s one week away!

On January 29, a new class comes to Atreia. The Aethertech, armed with a cipher blade, can summon a large magical mechanical construct called a Bastion.  The Aethertech joins the Gunslinger and the Songweaver to become the third new class introduced since the game launched nearly five years ago, and the third new class launched in the last year.

If you haven’t, check out the shiny new website for Steel Cavalry, and prepare yourself. You only have one week.

Transfer requests between now and January 22 will be processed during the January 22 scheduled maintenance.

Aion: Steel Cavalry Coming Soon!


Today, we’re happy to announce the name of the next free content expansion, Aion: Steel Cavalry.

With the release of Steel Cavalry, players will be able to at last play as the amazing Aethertech, who joins the Gunslinger and the Songweaver as the last of the three new classes promised! Technological breakthroughs from harnessing the power in Hyperion’s Aether have dramatically advanced Elyos and Asmodian armies. Aethertechs employ key-shaped Cipher-Blades to summon magical war machines, called Bastions, to ride into battle.

Additionally, we’ll also have two new instances to challenge players:

The Illuminary Obelisk
Built to protect Katalam from an outside attack, The Illuminary Obelisk is a point of strategic interest. The Obelisk houses a shielding device that has been sabotaged by Beritra's 43rd Destruction Unit. Daevas must bolster their forces and advance on the Obelisk to regain control of its defensive power if they hope to repair the shielding unit and turn the tides of war in their favor.

Iron Wall Warfront
Governor Pashid held a slim victory over the Eternal Bastion, but had suffered heavy losses from previous battles. Elyos and Asmodian spies discovered that Pashid's forces had dwindled to the point of weakness, and that now is the opportune moment to press their advantage. A new Warfront has erupted to claim the Eternal Bastion!

We’ll have another update sometime after the holidays. But for now, have another look at our exciting new teaser page here.
