No Comment 17 Views

NCsoft’s forthcoming title Aion: The Tower of Eternity has broke a Korean record after its beta became the most popular in the country’s history.

More than 170,000 members of the Korean gaming public have signed up to the beta for NCsoft’s MMO.

The open beta only became available last Tuesday (November 11th) and has already become the most popular beta event in Korean history.

NCsoft officials revealed that within two minutes of the beta release over 11,000 players were logged into the game. That number rose to 40,000 within an hour.

The publisher had to increase the number of servers for the beta to cope with the unexpectedly high demand.

David Reid, president of publishing for NCsoft West in Seattle, said: “The response we’re seeing in Korea is incredibly exciting. Our Aion community in North America and Europe is also rapidly growing. We’ve got aggressive plans for the western launch in 2009”.
