Aion gets a new class, the Aethertech in Aion 4.5.
NCsoft just announced the new Aethertech class that's headed for Aion in the game's 4.5 game update. The newest class is a little bit anime and a heaping helping of mech warfare. Controlled by the Technist class, these magical mechanical mounts are great for ranged attacks. Aion 4.5 is out on Korean test servers July 29 and will hit North American servers "after the normal localization process."
In NCsoft's press release detailing the Aethertech class, the studio claimed it is "an ideal class to add to any raid, PvP or boss battle deep in the world of Atria."
These Technist-controlled armored suits are powered by aether and can form into "gatling guns, rail guns, blades, electric whips, gigantic fists, and even rocket launchers." The video below does a great job of showing off the new class and its ability to seamlessly switch between weapons.
