According to this Russian source, there is no Aion 2.8 and 3.0 is expected to hit the Korean test server on October 19th with 3.0 going live on November 9th (this is discussed in the video accompanying the article that starts at time 10:11 for those who can understand Russian ). Little is known about the actual patch itself other than that there will be, "battles, house systems and mounts, new class skills, and many other, yet strictly secret, innovations". According to a previous developer interview, swimming did not make it into the patch.
Since the Russians have been having weekly phone conversations with Korean developers, we are now looking to Russia for quality information about Aion's development. Additionally, we at AionSource have our very own secret correspondent who will be covering 3.0 live in October. So stay tuned for more information about 3.0 as it happens!
