We now know that the EU version of Aion will make the transition to a free-to-play model by the end of February. This will allow you and your friends to experience the entire world of Atreia with no monthly cost for registration and the game client.
New members coming to the game, however, will have some limitations regarding trading and chat amongst others. Those who wish to unlock the game in its fullest potential, as well as receive some various bonuses, can upgrade to the Gold Pack. For all existing players that have already paid for an Aion subscription - whether it's still active or not - will receive Veteran status and will enjoy a very similar status as the Gold Pack members. To gain this status you must allow your account to be transferred to the new Gameforge server. For instructions on how to do this, be sure to check out the FAQ. Some F2P details are below:
- No monthly subscription fee.
- No charges for registration and client.
- All classes, regions and instances playable.
- Complete and playable storyline with 3,900 quests.
- Character development up to level 55 possible.
