Gameforge, a leading Western publisher of online multiplayer titles, today announced that the AION Classic server will be available to European players beginning on April 12th, 2023. AION Classic takes players through the ages of this popular MMORPG as this permanent server will be continuously updated with AION content from updates past.

Designed for current and lapsed AION players, as well as newcomers adventuring in the world of Atreia for the very first time, AION Classic will provide a wealth of captivating questlines, gorgeous, uniquely designed areas for each faction, and exhilarating PvP and PvE gameplay that will see you take to the skies in intense aerial combat. AION Classic will launch a permanent server that combines highly polished and curated content, bug fixes, and balancing from AION 1.9 and beyond. Return to the epic battle between the Elyos and Asmodians once the AION Classic server officially releases in Europe.

“We are delighted to be able to confirm the AION Classic launch date and know that fans in Europe have been eagerly awaiting this news,” said Nyoka, Product Manager at Gameforge. “We’ve worked hard together with our partners at NCSOFT to produce a version similar in quality to version 1.9. The focus will be on a smooth user experience with extra attention given to balancing and bug fixing, so it will not be exactly like 1.9, but also incorporate parts from earlier versions as well as the most recent updates to the South Korean version of AION Classic. You’ll be able to see all the gory details in our patch notes, which will be published closer to release.”
