We wrote about some of the issues players were experiencing in Aion open beta a couple days ago. We also mentioned an upcoming patch that aimed to fix it all. Well, it looks like that patch arrived last night. The patch isn't just performance related though -- it also addresses issues with classes, combat, quests, instanced dungeons, and much more.
As a reward to all beta testers for being so helpful and patient, NCsoft has decided to extend Aion's open beta... by six hours. This means open beta will now end Monday 9/14/2009 at 8 a.m. BST (5 a.m. EST). What's that we're hearing? The collective murmurs of "Yeah... um, woot?" Well, it's better than nothing, that's for sure. Some players have urged NCsoft to extend the beta even longer for testing purposes, but we're sure many of them don't want to let go of their characters before the week-and-a-half wait to release.
