Aion is being revived as Aion Classic and it’s arriving a lot sooner than you think. You won’t need to wait too long to play as Aion Classic launches on June 23.

That launch date is specific to the Americas. If you’re unfamiliar with Aion, it released back in 2009. However, this Aion Classic is bringing several quality of life improvements. You’ll also recognize some early dungeons. Additionally, only four of the original classes will be available to play. Each class includes two subclasses. Progression will be at a moderate pace in keeping with the original game.

Additionally, Aion Classic will have a subscription-based model for players as well as a free to play option. You’ll be able to buy Siel’s Aura with real money which you then use to buy subscriptions in 30, 90, or 365 day increments. Additonaly, a 3-day pass is available.

Regarding the free version, this will be available for everyone. However, free players will gain experience slower than subscribed players. Aion Classic will also include a battle pass called the Daeva Pass. This battle pass will include extra quests and rewards, and its own premium currency, Quna. You can use this Quna currency to purchase cosmetic and consumable items, account services, and unlock the premium Daeva Pass tier.

Rifting PvP also makes its return in Aion Classsic. This means you’ll see portals open between Asmodae and Elysea which will give you various PvP quests and unique currency. Faction-based Fortress sieges also return which sees players from competing factions fight over control of objectives.
