Heads Will Roll...Realistically!

It's no secret that one of the biggest draws of the upcoming game, Age of Conan, is its promise for a unique and robust combat system. For years MMOG players have been using the same types of systems hashed and rehashed. Machail discusses the details of Funcom's planned system and its potential impact on today's market.

With this new approach, all attacks will be in real time. This means if a player chooses to swing their sword, they will be able to do so--anytime, anywhere. Where they swing their sword will also be up to the player. They can aim for their opponentÂ’s legs to cripple them, or slice at their head to deal the death blow.
