Q:
What is
“instancing” and is it used in Age of
Conan?

A:
Instancing is a term used to create a private
version of a dungeon or
area, usually used to prevent over-crowding or to offer a more involved
experience to a player or group of players. There are instanced areas
and
events in the game, but they are not overdone to the point where you
feel
closed off from the rest of the game world.  There are also
"social" instancies, allowing 100 players into the instance before a
new instance is created.

launch title. What does this mean? Will I
need Windows Vista to play it?

The game takes full advantage of Windows Vista and DX10.

working with Microsoft to make sure they make full use of the
advantages of the
operating system and the Direct X version. However, it will also be
able to be
played on Windows XP and DX9.

character and join in combat. There is also a rumble feature that will
make
your controller vibrate when you hit an enemy with your weapon if you
have a
compatible gamepad.
