Aion’s getting an expansion later this month, and it looks to be a doozy.

Aion: Upheaval launches on June 17 and adds… well, we’ll just let the bullet points speak for themselves:

  • Two new zones, Cygnea and Enshar, full of never-before-seen creatures and brand new quests.
  • Two new raid instances — an ancient fighting ground named Stonespear Reach and Drakensipre Depths, a living prison with a very special prisoner.
  • An overhaul to existing skills, a revamped Stigma system, and improved Skill User Interface.
  • Incredible new armor and weapon sets, inspired by the new lands discovered in Upheaval.
  • The ability to claim bases and areas of land for your legion with the all-new Territory Battles system.
  • There’s a heaping helping of storyline info to go with all the changes to the game, as laid out in the above video, so fans of Aion lore should be plenty satisfied as well. In all, it looks like a pretty massive… well, upheaval, in a lot of the game’s core mechanics and story.
