Aion: The Tower of Eternity is lovely to say the least: NCsoft wants to show you just how much by giving you a tour of its Altgard zone.

Game’s out this fall. Watch the video below.

Area backstory is posted as well.

Altgard is a place of extremes, from the Altgard Ice Lake, where the Archon Daevas defend the beautiful Altgard Fortress, which juts out of the ice like a bizarre skeleton, to the lush Moslan Forest, teeming with life. But throughout the region, a clear, brittle light is given by the strange phosphorescent plants that have evolved over the centuries since the Cataclysm.

In Asmodae it is very apparent just how much the modern Humans and Daevas live amongst the ruins of the ancient civilizations that once thrived there, and Altgard is no exception. Impetusium, once an arena, and Urutemheim, built as a monument to heroes long-forgotten, stand as imposing memorials of what once was.

Meanwhile, the Black Claw Mau, a race of fierce cat-warriors, continue to encroach on Asmodian territory, defending their villages and their most sacred places with a terrifying vehemence.
