Yesterday we all got a little excited after one of the NCsoft spokesmen appeared to announce that Aion would be getting an expansion pack every year. It looked like this was in addition to content updates, but GamerZines decided to contact NCsoft directly and verify what exactly he had meant.
The response from NCsoft was very clear. They hadn’t been talking about Aion expansion packs at all: “the content updates Cristian-Peter Heimbach referred to in that interview are digital, free content updates, on the same level as almost all MMOs do these days.”
They go on to clarify how content updates will be rolled out and other bits and pieces. You can read the clarification of the Aion expansion packs here on the GamerZines main website which includes fuller details of the story.
