NCsoft has just held a press conference to reveal upcoming updates for Aion version 2.5, which will add much new content to the game. I am sure Aion fansites like Aion Source shall soon translate the details, here is some brief information from the press conference and what players in Aion can expect to see. By the way, the update's title seems to be called "Call of the God". The update will hit around late January in the Korean server, with no specific date yet.
According to the press conference video, the game will be patched throughout 2011 until version 3.0 hit in October. Version 3.0 will apparently bring in the new housing system into Aion, as well as new mounts such as the magic carpet.
