Eye on Community 9-10-2010

Greetings Daevas!

It's been a fantastic week, and with the smooth launch of Aion®: Assault on Balaurea, many of us here are in need of a day off to recover. Of course, we'll be spending that day of recovery by exploring Inggison, Gelkmaros, and Silentera Canyon. Perhaps we'll see you in game!

Because it's been such a busy week, we wanted to take some time to recap some of the cool stuff that we released this week:

Aion: Assault on Balaurea Soundtrack
The Assault on Balaurea Soundtrack is available in the iTunes Store. Pick it up, and listen to some of your favorite scores from the first expansion to Aion, anywhere, anytime!

Aion: Assault on BalaureaLaunch Trailer
For centuries, the Balaur have scoured our lands and killed millions of Daevas in their destructive wake. Now it is time to bring the fight to their home land. Check out the launch trailer to get a glimpse at what you'll encounter.

Topic of the Week

Assault on Balaurea has introduced a lot of new content, new enemies, and new changes. As part of the Assault on Balaurea expansion, rifting has changed, and we are interested in hearing how the changes have impacted you as a player and your playstyle.

Please remember to keep your feedback and posts civil and constructive. We are interested in hearing about your experience and your thoughts. To join in the conversation, visit our Assault on Balaurea Rifting Changes feedback thread over at the official forums.
