Mech-lovers, rejoice: The Aethertech class is finally on its way to Aion
! Although we don't have an exact date, NCsoft
has just announced that the third new class for the free-to-play fantasy game will arrive in the first quarter of 2014 as part of a new expansion dubbed Steel Cavalry
. That means that players will be able to suit up as an Aethertech before the end of March.
Previously referred to as patch 4.5
, Steel Cavalry
(so named for the battle machines that are joining the fray) will be also adding two dungeons to Atreia: The Illuminary Obelisk and Iron Wall Warfront. In The Illuminary Obelisk, players work to regain control of a shielding device in Katalam in order to repair it. The Iron Wall Warfront is a new battle to claim the Eternal bastion from the weakened forces of Pashid. We'll keep you posted as we learn more!
