NCSoft USA announced today that Aion: Awakened Legacy is launching on October 24th, 2018 which is the biggest update of the year for the game. Awakened Legacy, better known as 6.0, increases the game's level cap to 80, introduces the new Lakrum zone, adds new skills, gear, items, and more. It's a massive update and to celebrate the occasion, NCSoft is giving away free awakened gala gift packs (visit the splash page to get them). The European version of Aion through gameforge received this exact same update early last week, so the North American version is a tad late. Still, better late than never. This is the first time the game has increased its level cap since 2016, so it's a massive update. Mark your calendars!

It’s good to see that after the somewhat oddly-named “alpha zero” test phase, Ashes of Creation is planning to move on to alpha one on September 1st. Unfortunately for that particular news story, the game managed to irritate people shortly thereafter by announcing My.com as its publisher in Europe, which raised some hackles. The game addressed that promptly, but you know how tempers are slow to settle. Other beta news? Let’s find out! Actual legitimate previews of Amazon’s New World are finally coming out! This is a very good thing, especially if you’re one of the many people who has been concerned about the status of this particular title during the tumult of other titles. The launch for MapleStory 2 has been set for October 10th, while founders can start in on September 24th. If you weren’t willing to buy into the game, you’ve only got a month or so left to wait!

I’m sorry to report some Daybreak news tonight that sadly won’t come as a shock to most gamers: The studio is sunsetting Just Survive. “After careful consideration, we’ve made the difficult decision to sunset Just Survive on Wednesday, October 24 at 11 a.m. PT,” Daybreak writes. “The excitement of the game’s promise was palpable and its loyal community is still full of ideas for its future.
