Our friends over at NCSoft have sent us three videos this morning. A few months ago the fire elemental was unveiled, showing an attention to detail by NCSoft's team working on Aion to ensure that higher level and more challenging fire elementals don't look generic like the ones you'll come across in your earlier travels.
Now we have videos to show...
During our time at Games Convention in Leipzig, the guys over at NCSoft invited us to take place in one of the first english speaking demonstrations for their upcoming game Aion. The game, which I summed up textually in this article, looks amazing. Words really can't do this game justice for how beautiful it is visually! This video is a must see,...

GC2007 - Aion Demo and Q/A
We were met by the team from NCSoft Europe at their booth, ready to present Aion to us in all its splendor and glory. Paired up with various other press representatives we began the presentation with an in-game walkthrough of the starting zones and aspects of the game.
One of the first things to notice was that the...

The folks over at Aion Europe have not only been sending out Screenshots and Concept art lately, but also some rather fine looking video footage from ingame Aion.

The folks over at NCSoft Europe have sent out a new batch of concept art and screenshots to show off Aion's cool and unique game world. Here at Curse we have made these images available for your viewing pleasure as listed below:
The Mau are a breed of humanoid beasts found throughout the Asmodian territories. They possess acute agility and a carnal instinct for battle, providing a significant threat to the Asmodians in Pandaemonium.
The tribes of the Mau are well adapted to their surroundings and live in close harmony with nature. They are exceedingly belligerent and...
The graphics of Aion is typical of Korean style. Similar to most MMO games, you can see character`s status, skill tab, map radar, etc at the bottom of the screen.
It is odd that the map radar does not show the coordinates of team members. The radar disperses its beam around itself. The player can see the coordinates of monsters, but...

We have some new information regarding Aion that was talked about at the recent Jeju Island Conference on June 20th. There was an interview performed at the conference with one of Aion's developers and they shared quite a bit of new info.
First of all, there is going to be in-game customization of armor using color potions(dyes more than likely)...
The official Aion website had some additional lore added today. This lore takes a look at the Fire Elemental, its background, and how it progresses through various tiers, improving in looks and power.
The developers of Aion have released the following screenshots of the new NPC race, the Shugo. The Shugo are a race who specializes in 'trading' and I'm sure we can expect to find then involved in tradeskills a lot.
Thank you all for your interest in Aion. I am the lead Art Director Hyung-jun Kim. I’m glad to meet you!
Have you ever wondered what a game development studio's art team actually does? In truth, it's all about drawing! We are the individuals responsible for sketching the game concepts which, when put together, create the game world.
Ji Yong-chan, Design Team Leader
Watching Lead Designer Ji Yong-chan around the studio, it makes you wonder if all game designers are so constantly on edge. Do they all drive themselves to exhaustion simply through thinking?
Although Ji is the ‘leader’ of the design team for Aion, his workload is just as demanding as any other member of the team....
