Aion players across the pond have eagerly waited for their turn to participate in the massive update that introduces housing, mounts, a higher level cap, and two brand new areas to the game. That wait is finally over: Gameforge has announced Aion's 3.0 patch will launch in Europe next Wednesday, August 15th!
Come next week, every Daeva over level 21 will be able to own his own space. Along with housing, players will be able to specialize in the new furniture making crafting profession to decorate and personalize their home-sweet-homes. Characters level 55 through 60 (the new level cap) will be able to access the newest areas of Balaurea: Sarpan and Tiamaranta. While Tiamaranta brings four new fortresses to conquer, Sarpan is a PvP-free zone where Asmodians and Elyos must live together under a truce.
