NCsoft has updated their Aion FAQ to include information on the Aion beta test. Instead of a traditional beta, they will be providing fans with several opportunities to try the game at a number of preview events.
The Aion FAQ has been updated with new information concerning beta testing. The entry is now as follows:
"When will beta testing begin?
In lieu of beta testing, Aion fans will be given opportunities to participate in a small number of Preview events before the game's release. In addition to soliciting player feedback, the Preview events will help prepare for Aion's release, as well as provide a great gaming experience on launch day and beyond.
As with Aion's release date, the schedule of these Preview events will be announced in coming months."
