Free-to-play from February 28 onwards.

Aion is making the switch to free-to-play in Europe on February 28, publisher Gameforge has announced. The free-to-play switch will arrive alongside the Ascension update, bringing with it new mounts, instances, zones, the new housing system and a new level cap of 60.

The free-to-play model adopted by Gameforge seems to have more in common with Sony Online Entertainment and Funcom’s freemium model than NCsoft’s “truly free” model. The game will sport three membership types, Starter for new players, Veteran for former subscribers and Gold Pack for premium players who subscribe for €9.99 a month.
