Europe is getting the Aion 3.0 update on August 15. The update will bring new zones and a level cap increase to 60. Let’s not forget new mounts as well.

From the press release:

    The long-awaited release of Update 3.0, the most extensive expansion since AION’s release, is imminent. On the 15.08.2012, players will be able to use two brand new areas and countless new features such as mounts and the housing system.

    Sarpan and Tiamaranta
    Two new areas – Sarpan and Tiamaranta – offer PvE as well as PvP fans countless exciting challenges. Single and multiplayer instances, fortress battles, colossal boss monsters, numerous new items and a level cap increased to level 60 will keep drawing you back into the wonderful world of Atreia.

    Fast Mounts & Well-Tended Gardens
    Aside from using their wings, Daevas can now additionally use mounts to increase their movement speed and to reach their destination more quickly. And after a nerve-wracking day of adventure, they can return to their own home, which can be decorated and customised to their heart’s content. Furniture can be produced with the new furniture handicrafting skill. The change of the seasons bestows ever-changing, breath-taking panoramas on the housing area.
