Good gravy. Aion’s first proper dev diary lies after the break, showing an MMO like no other. Whether or not it p;lays like a bag of shit is yet to be determined, but on the visual front it looks astonishing.

There’s a bunch of stuff in there, including the game’s flight ability and a good explanation of the world and races.

It’s out in the West later this year. Thanks, Massively.

    I wish more developers would do a single player exp like Bethesda does, where the world is huge, but its not an MMO.
    It could have multiplayer, like Sacred 2, but be a huge world.
    All these MMO’s that cost a ton to make, and most die off.
    Even a console game like Guild Wars would be interesting, but have single player and multi player zones.

    This is the first time I’ve actually taken a look at this mmo and it does look very good. I’m definitely liking the flying part of the game, i’ve only seen that done in WoW and that was through mounts.

    Hunam i think this is actually cryenegine 1. yeah i’m pretty sure it is.

    i’ve been watching and waiting for this game since the first screenshot, since the first trailers was released and this will definetly be my first p2p mmo.

    yes fearmonkey, let’s just cut the mp, let’s just do sp only, let’s just not communicate with eachother anymore, let’s just isolate from the world, let’s just hide in our own dark rooms and.. omfg r u joking!? why should they not add mp when they can, when it’s such an awesome thing, to play online, with your friends. i mean, the best ppl that i met in life, i met them online, and they were intelligent, and wise and strong and funny and i definetly want to meet more ppl like that, or play with the ones i met so far again. and i am against the idea of creating a game with less options, espcially when the options that they add, add to the quality of the game.

    anasui, spoken like a true american boy. keep the spirit alive baby! lame.. not that i enjoy too much korean bs but this is not that “koreancentric” as u put it. it has some eastern elements and some western elements. a good mix of the two.

    david yeah, we need more of those when those that r on the market right now, r not as good as they can be, as good as they should be.

    p.s. i can’t wait to go hardcore again and rape the weaklings of the internet once more.. :D
