Age of Conan: Unchained News

  • This week we take a deeper look into another of the classes available in Age of Conan - The Druid of the Storm.

    Primal and resourceful, these priests of the shamanistic arts are masters of the world around them, at one with nature.

    Their understanding of the world around them also means that they have an almost endless knowledge of natural healing remedies that can keep their allies standing in battle. Not just a healer they can utilise ancient arts, runes and charms passed down by their forefathers to protect and keep allies safe from harm

    You can read more about this here.

    And then discuss here.

  • CES Impressions

    FiringSquad has updated their CES coverage today. Here is a glimpse at their thoughts on Age of Conan...

    "But what about the DirectX10 graphics?," you might be asking yourself at this point. "Do they look cool?" The answer we will give based on seeing this early pre-alpha build is, "Kinda." Funcom's visual look for Age of Conan was already on the high side for an MMO title but the demo at CES only looked marginally sharper than most games of this type. The character's faces are a little more detailed and there are some environmental lighting effects (sunlight streaming through trees for example) that look good. But we admit to being spoiled by the DirectX10 demo of Crysis and in comparison, the demo of Age of Conan is currently not the huge leap forward in graphics for MMOs as Crysis is for first person shooters.
