Aion: CryTek-Powered Celestials


NCSoft was hit rather hard by the failure of Tabula Rasa, and they'll be looking for their next big title to do a little better. Despite being another fantasy MMORPG Aion is actually looking pretty interesting, with its scenario of war between angel and demon analogues, it's ludicrously spectacular environments, and its aerial combat. It's also visually splendid, being powered by CryTek's CryEngine technology. You can see that in action, with some flying manta-rays and floating castles, after the jump. Aion is already making waves in China and Korea, and we're expecting to see it roll out in Europe and North America towards the end of the year.
