Age of Conan: Unchained

  • New Age of Conan Screenshots Focus on Combat and Magic

    Earlier this week, Funcom announced that the public could now sign up for the Age of Conan beta test and begin to participate in the final technical trials of the upcoming MMO. Ever since the Ten Ton Hammer team got a chance to view the game at GDC, we've been looking for every opportunity to see mroe AoC material. The developers at Funcom have been slowly working more and more excitement into the Age of Conan campaign, and this latest set of screenshots only heightens the anticipation for the game. Featuring combat and magic, the images below showcase the violence of Hyboria, the enormity of the monsters, and the radical nature of the supernatural. Check them out!

  • I'm Hearing the Lamentations of the Women....

    For all you barbarians out there, the Funcom team is now taking applications for the Age of Conan beta test! If you've been hiding under a rock for the last few months, I'd recommend you pull yourself out and go sign up for this beta immediately.

    As the gates to the online world of Hyboria are opening, you have the chance to become one of the select adventurers who may answer the call and come to the aid of Conan. The search for beta testers is upon us, and we invite every able man and woman to offer their aid in the quest for a better gaming experience. Now you can make a difference.

    Beta testers get free and early access to the game in order to help the developers track down program errors. Also, they provide valuable feedback on the game design, functionality and fun factor. Please sign up using this form, but please note that applying does not guarantee acceptance.

    Honestly, Age of Conan and Lord of the Rings Online are the two games I have the most excitement for and I can't encourage you enough to go sign up for the Age of Conan Beta!

    In their GDC presentation, Funcom - the developers behind Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures - gave us glimpses of a caravan quest that required you to protect two camels and their guards as the meandered to a neigboring town.

In their latest batch of screenshots, Funcom has given us some pictures of these caravaners, as well as an overhead view of a city and some beautiful shots of in-game scenery. Check them out right away!

  • Four New Screenshots

    The official site for Age of Conan has been updated this morning with four new screenshots.

    One of the things that we are really proud of in Age of Conan is the visual diversity that the development team has managed to deliver. This is particularly evident when looking at the different landscapes of Hyboria that is realized in this game, from the snow-capped mountains of Cimmeria to the burning deserts of Stygia. And everything in between!

  • GDC Look At Age of Conan

    GamersInfo updated their site with a look at Age of Conan. Keep reading to see what they think of this upcoming MMO.

    It's odd the little things you notice in a game. After Funcom representative Jorgen Theraldssen picked himself up from the shore and stumbled into the village, I noticed color. In this primitive, basic world were bright aqua greens from the water; vivid purples in the flowers on the ground; intense reds in the buds dropping from the trees. The world could easily have been done in earth tone hues only, but the artists gave it life.
