If you’re excited as much as we are about Aion then pre-ordering it is probably on your mind already. But if you’re on the fence about it then maybe some incentive is in order. When you pre-order Aion you’ll gain access to the beta events, early access to the live servers, special in-game benefits including character and server pre-selection privileges and exclusive in-game items. Some of the in-game items include a Black Cloud Hat, Lodas Amulet and one of five Ancient Rings of Power. We’re not sure what any of those things actually are having not played the game yet, but we’re sure they’re pretty fancy and will make any non-pre-orderers jealous.
Pre-ordering Aion will also automatically enter you in a chance to win an Alienware Area-51 m15x gaming notebook which is not too shabby. If you pre-order the collector’s edition you’ll get all of this plus all the swag in the CE including the 6.5″ figurine, special title, black wings and special emotes. If you’re planning on buying the game anyway, then pre-ordering it will pay off simply from the fact that you’ll be able to play the game long before it’s released through the beta and early start events. Seems like a win/win situation to me.
