If any of you played Aion before or have been interested in it today marks the launch of 3.0, the largest content update since the game's release nearly 2 years go. For the NA version the game is now completely free, no game purchase required or monthly subscription fee! Yes there is a new cash shop but none of the items so far are of the pay to win type. This game used to be a huge grind fest but not anymore and is probably one of the most polished mmos available. Just a big heads up for those of you looking for something different to try.
