Flying in the face of the typical developer code name for games in development such as Project M or Project X, NCSOFT is working on a title called Project A2 that is significantly along in its development. According to Korean site The Fact (via 2P.com), this seems to be a reference to Aion 2 since the code name has both a letter and a number attached to it.
Merry Daevas throughout Aion can now take part in the game's Frozen Magic celebration. Frosterinerk is on hand to help Daevas enchant magical snowballs to enchant through three parts to earn some pretty awesome presents that can include crafting boost charms, chicken wings, enchantment stones, Netherworld Daeva Wings, a plastic surgery ticket, AP boost charms, dyes, Frosterinerk's Amulet and many others.
