An MMORPG using 3D graphics to portray the war between Elyos, Asmodian and Balaur unfolding around Atreia's Tower of Eternity split between two worlds. AION gained publicity as the first game in Korea with aerial PvP, then earned recognition for the artistic value of its high quality graphics and OST, remaining the no. 1 title in PC cafes for a record-breaking 160 weeks in a row.
The first Korean game with aerial PvP
Aerial combat where players freely fly in the air became AION’s unrivaled signature element. Built around the story of the endless war between Elyos, Asmodian and Balaur, AION was the first game in Korea to introduce spectacular PvP air battle, gaining popularity and recognition of its artistic value.
The revolutionary OST of AION
The OST of AION is one of the best and most popular albums in the history of Korean game music. The creation of the soundtrack lasted 3 years prior to the release of AION.
