Aion’s will get “at least” one major annual content update going forward, NCsoft has confirmed to VG247.

“There will be at least one major update a year,” said brand manager Christian-Peter Heimbach, talking in an interview published today.

“You know this from our previous titles. We’re currently adjusting on how we’re going to make these available, but there will be free content updates for all players, and we’re looking then at how big the major updates will be.”

The MMO, which has collected a giant 400,000 pre-orders, will go live in the US tomorrow and on Friday in Europe.

NCsoft has long adhered to a system of providing its MMOs with yearly content updates.
