The Aion team has let us know that Aion: Ascension, the free to play North American version of the game, will officially launch on April 11th. In addition, the team has detailed a new marketplace feature called "C.U.B.E.".
C.U.B.E. stands for Customizable User Bundling Experience and allows players to create and purchase their own personalized bundles of items from the Black Cloud Marketplace. Whatever fits inside comes at a single price. Players purchasing a "design-your-own" bundle will also receive bonus items dependent on the size of the package bought. Players will be able to preorder bundles beginning on April 4th.
The team has also laid out the details of the Atreian Atlas:
Aion players will also enjoy the new Atreian Atlas which functions as an always-on, benevolent, veteran gamer willing to help players throughout the game. Depending on the character and the play style of the gamer, the Atreian Atlas will pull up a customized path detailing where they’ve been and a personal program detailing upcoming challenges. Players will be able to click on each mission revealing difficulty, minimum suggested level, related quests as well as comprehensive interactive maps, video guides and information on the bosses they will encounter. The information revealed within the Atreian Atlas allows players the opportunity to properly prepare for future challenges.
