Age of Conan Interview at Moggers

Posted Fri, Nov 11, 2005 by Ethec

A Game for the Mature Barbarian
Moggers interviews Jorgen Tharaldson, Conan product manager about the Q2 2006 MMO's unique features: like solo-only to level 20, the single-player focus, brutal endgame, and the "mature" rating. Does this mean we'll see buxom barbarian beauty booty? They don't ask, but we would!

"Conan is announced as a mature game. This is (as far as we know) the first time developers don't try to get a 12+ years rating. So you expect an older audiance? What is the advantage of this?
We are definitively going for the mature audience in Conan, and to be honest I don’t think anything else would have cut it. I mean, it’s Conan, you are supposed to be brutal and barbaric in this universe, right? ;P) We also see that the average online RPG player is close to 28 years (27,2 years in Anarchy Online). If I am not all mistaken the average overall gamer is now 24 years old, so the majority of the gamers are hence adults."
