This weekend as you are more than likely aware is Closed Beta event number 5!
Official news on the patch going live are here: http://na.aiononline.com/en/news/closed-beta-5-is-coming.html

If you missed them, voila, there you go!
Just to give you an idea, the Aion voiceover localization process involved:
• Approximately 200 speaking parts
• 200 voiced cinematics/cut scenes
• 8,000-10,000 lines of dialogs
• 45,000 voice audio files
• Three weeks of recording time (not including additional voice pickups)
Make sure you open up your NCsoft launcher, left click the down arrow on Aion and Update! With all the English voices and other such additions, the file is 438.3MB, a whopper, be ready to log in when servers go live!
Will you be playing this weekend? If so, what are you planning to do when servers go live?
