Since the Tuesday launch of Aion‘s open beta testing in Korea, concurrent user numbers have already jumped to more than 170,000 players, making it the most popular beta event in Korean history. According to NCsoft, more than 11,000 people were logged into the game after only two minutes of open beta service. In less than an hour, that number had ballooned to 40,000. Currently the number of concurrent players has leapt up to more than 170,000.

Twenty-five new servers were opened within the first few hours of the beta test opening to accomodate the flood of players.

His killer instinct having been aroused by this, David Reid, president of publishing for NCsoft West, said, “We’ve got aggressive plans for the western launch in 2009.”
