  • Conclusion of CVG's Age of Conan Interview

    Today sees the conclusion of the interview on CVG. Don't miss out on what they were able to learn about Funcom's upcoming Age of Conan.

    What occurs in the single-player section of the game, and when that's completed is it a traditional MMORPG that we move into?

    Erling Ellingsen: The single-player feature has changed much since we started designing Age of Conan, mostly due to feedback from the testers in the closed beta. Originally it was designed to be an entire single-player game before you stepped into the massive world, but we've scaled this down somewhat because people generally wanted to be able to interact with other players much sooner.

  • Class Preview - Herald of Xotli

    The official site for Age of Conan was updated Friday with a new class preview. This time we get a look at the Herald of Xotli.

    Some of those who meddle in the demonic arts are either too weak-minded or venture too far down the path of demonology to remain untainted for long. The Heralds are those who with an insatiable lust for power regardless of the cost have bargained with the demon god Xotli and paid the ultimate price.

  • Interview...Part I

    CVG.com has posted the first installment of an interview that have recently done with Erling Ellingson, the project manager for the upcoming Age of Conan.

    Blizzard's all-dominating World of Warcraft is set to face its most serious challenge yet in 2007, a number of new 'big name' MMORPGs preparing to enter the market before the year is out.

    Product manger Erling Ellingsen reveals that on top of creating a compelling MMORPG experience Funcom is aiming to incorporate cross-platform adventuring into Age of Conan. So, while the PC version will release first this October, PC gamers and Xbox 360 gamers could eventually be able to buddy-up and compare oiled muscly pectorals.

  • Class Preview - Lich

    The official site for Age of Conan has been updated with another class preview. This time we are treated to a glimpse at the Lich.

    Of all the mages the Lich is perhaps the most feared by the ordinary travellers. Where the Necromancer animates the dead, the Lich actually embraces and joins the dead, becoming one with the foul and decaying undead they can channel great power from by their sacrifice of parts of their mortal soul and body.
