Age of Conan: Unchained

  • Another Look At Age of Conan has posted another look at the upcoming Age of Conan.

    I know, I know – it’s been two months since I saw this game at DragonCon. But Age of Conan is probably the MMORPG that I’m looking forward to the most, along with one other one (Warhammer), so I’ve wanted to make sure it’ll be a good preview.

    FunCom was on-hand at DragonCon to give a preview of Age of Conan to the people there. In addition, I had a chance to speak to Ole Herbjornsen, the lead developer for the game, for a few minutes after the presentation.

  • Conan Was Here... Latest Age of Conan Beta Screenshots Feature Ruins, Landscape

    When you think Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures (official site), you probably think of muscle-bulging barbarians rather than a toppled Medo-Persian fortress. Nevertheless, ruins is what Funcom was giving out, so it's ruins we have for you! Age of Conan, a Funcom developed fantasy MMORPG based on the world of Robert E. Howard's Conan the Barbarian corpus circa 1930, is set for release in spring 2007.

  • Age of Conan Updated Impressions: More Than Just Swordplay At GameSpot

    Gamespot has posted a preview of the upcoming Age of Conan. This preview takes a look at the roles of commander and lord.

    BARCELONA--Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures is more than a simply massively multiplayer online hack and slash-fest. Oh, make no mistake, the game based on Robert E. Howard's classic tales of the boozing, brawling, babe-loving barbarian king will offer you plenty of opportunities to get to the wetworks with your favorite edged weapon on all sorts of enemies. It just isn't all there is to do in this multifaceted game, as we discovered on the floor of X06 today.

  • Crafting in Age of Conan

    The official site for Age of Conan has been updated with another Gameplay Preview. This preview gives us a look at crafting and what we can expect to see when the game launches.

    Whilst the bare hands and ingenuity of a warrior can take them far, even in the brutal realm of King Conan, they are though even better served with some well forged steel or finely made iron sheathed by their side.

    Weapons and armor are the tools by which those whose adventures find them in the dangerous lands of Hyboria live or die by. Likewise there is always a need for potions and other medicinal aids, as even the hardiest of warriors can find themselves in need of recovery.

    Don't miss a thing! Get clicking to read more. Is Age of Conan on your must play list? Tell us why in the forums right here at Ten Ton Hammer.
