Age of Conan: Unchained

  • Five New Concepts

    The official site for Age of Conan was updated Friday with five new pieces of concept art.

    There are five new images added to the gallery today showing a range of Stygian armor inspirations. From clothing the refined and sensual curves of their mysterious women to displaying the ornate grandeur of the finest Stygian armor, our artists constantly strive to capture the essence of the Stygia that comes across so vividly in Howard's descriptions of the dangerous desert kingdom.

    Head over and check them out!

  • New Age of Conan Screenshots: Connall's Valley

    Our latest batch of screens depict "Connall's Valley", and while it might sound like the name of your local dairy (supposing you're still living in the 1950s), these are actually from Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures. Along with the proof site of "ruins" screencaps we got in early November (follow the link to see both), we're starting to get a feel for how the gloomy backdrop of AoC will settle us into a mood somewhere between foreboding and brutal. See for yourself, but these quality shots look like the painting lovechild of an El Greco and a Rembrandt.

  • Take A Look At Conall's Valley

    GameSpy.com has posted an indepth look into a region of Age of Conan called Conall's Valley.

    In the wild and cold lands of northern Cimmeria, at the foot of the mountain known as Ben Morgh, there's a valley torn apart by ages of conflict and war. This deep rift in the Earth here is known as Conall's Valley. This is where a tribe of proud Cimmerians have found their home and their calling as they strive to keep their small settlement out of the clutches of the savage Vanir who continually try to breach their wooden walls.

  • An In Depth Look At Age of Conan

    The Game Musketeers has posted an interview with Erling Ellingsen about Age of Conan...

    With an original system of single-player game merging into a MMO environment. How will the single-player experience enhance the MMO game?

    The way we see it, MMOs can be very intimidating at first. They lack many of the gameplay mechanics that draw the player in from the start of most games, such as story that really takes you by the hand and gets you going. Stories that can shake your world and it feel like you are really something other than just another peasant out to kill rabbits. We wanted to incorporate that into the MMO genre, and thus we created what we refer to as Age of Conan's single-player part. Actually, though, it is not truly single-player all the time.
