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.

In case you’ve been living under a rock, NCsoft MMO Aion releases this week. More than 400,000 people are lined up to play the Korean fantasy import, and it’s looking very much like this is the largest MMO event of the year by a substantial margin.
To celebrate, we had a chat with brand manager Christian-Peter Heimbach at NCsoft’s Brighton office on westernizing the game, plans for the future and plenty more.
After the break.

NCsoft MMO Aion now has more than 300,000 activated pre-orders ahead of its western launch later this month, Euro MD Véronique Lallier told VG247 yesterday.
“Aion’s starting to achieve nice numbers,” said the boss. “We are over 300,000 activated pre-orders in the West.
“It’s looking healthy. It’s nice and healthy two weeks before the launch… It looks very good at the moment.”
Aion project lead Christian-Peter Heimbach added that the game’s real western test will come post-launch.
“We have a strong belief in the game,” he said. “We know the quality… and we also have hard numbers, as Vero already confirmed. We’re happy to say that we’re really confident.
“The next thing to prove, of course, is that we can keep this up. I think there’s a solid audience out there eager to play a new MMO, so I think we’re on a good path.”
Aion releases on September 22 in the US and September 25 in Europe.
