AoC 4 Life Contest

Updated Thu, Dec 17, 2009 by Ralsu

AoC 4 Life!

Seven contestants will win a collector's edition copy of Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures. And that's not even the cool part!

Age of Conan is almost here, and Ten Ton Hammer is teaming with FUNCOM to bring you the contest of a lifetime! In the Ten Ton Hammer AoC 4Life contest, 10 people will score beta keys. 5 of those lucky beta key winners will also get a copy of the collector's edition of Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures. 1 will go on to get the collector's edition plus an autographed framed Age of Conan concept art. And one extremely lucky contestant will walk away with a collector's edition signed by FUNCOM founder and Age of Conan Game Director Gaute Godager and a lifetime subscription to the Age of Conan.

You read it right. One lucky S.O.B. will get the game free, it'll be signed by Gaute Godager, and that gamer will never have to pay a penny for Age of Conan for life!

How to enter
From March 31, 2008 to April 18, 2008, we want you to tell us why you think Age of Conan is the game you'll be playing for life. Just post your thoughts in 100-250 words in our forums. Ten Ton Hammer Age of Conan Community Managers Machail, Martuk, and JoBildo will choose the 10 most convincing and articulate forum posts as our finalists on April 20, 2008. Each of those lucky contestants will receive an Age of Conan beta key. Those same ten finalists will be entered into a random drawing to determine 7 winners of our prize packages. Those winners will be announced on April 28, 2008.

3rd Place
Five 3rd Place winners will get a copy of the Age of Conan collector's edition. For contents of the North American collector's edition, see below (contents may vary for European editions):

Who doesn't want a drinking cape? Seriously!

The Ten Ton Hammer AoC 4 Life contest is open only to residents of the United States or Canada 18 years of age or older (We have legal issues awarding prizes to people in other countries. Sorry!). The 10 finalists will be selected based on the quality of the post and will receive an Age of Conan beta key.
