Game of the Week
Aion: Assault on Balaurea is a subscription MMORPG developed by NCsoft. Players step into a role of a character in a world divided between the brave and hardy Asmodians and the winged Elyos, sworn enemies in a celestial war.

Adventure across the vast world of Atreia, through challenging solo and group dungeons, epic quests, and massive Legion raids, all to ultimately save your world from utter destruction!
