NCsoft recently revealed the dates for Aion's Open Beta and now, to ensure a smooth start, they're releasing the Open Beta Client (that runs from September 6th to September 13th) on FilePlanet and GamersHell. It's over 9 GB, so start your downloaders.

NCsoft also added a new option that the Aion community has long anticipated: downloading the full open beta client via BitTorrent tracker. There's even the option to download a torrent patch for those of you who already have the closed beta client installed but want to get prepared for open beta.

FilePlanet will also be giving away a load of open beta keys starting on Tuesday, September 1, 2009.

By the way, BitTorrent is completely legal... even though most of the files available as torrents aren't.
