Deck the halls in Aion this holiday season, whether you’re in North America or Europe. For North American players, the Shugo Game has arrived in both the base and classic versions of NCSoft’s MMORPG, letting 12-24 players compete in a version of Red Light, Green Light — “at a deadly cost!” as the press release puts it. It’s not hard to tell what that’s trying to imitate.
In regular Aion, you can also partake of the Winter Wonderland event, where Daevas of opposing factions can chill in a no-combat zone and complete activities for coins that can be exchanged for various rewards. In Aion Classic, there’s the Glorious Solorius event, which has Daevas hunting down red-garbed Grankers and Shugos to steal their treasures.
Meanwhile, the European publisher of Aion, Gameforge, also has some winter festivities lined up for Aion players. Until mid-January, you can get rare drops from monsters in the Heroes of Atreia event or take on greater challenges in the “Return of the Winter Park Queen” event.
