AoC - Gameplay Preview - Ranged Combat

Posted Fri, Mar 10, 2006 by Awenyddion

I always look forward to updates on the Age of Conan site. I believe in the Funcom developers. AO may not have been the most popular game but it was impressive in it's depth of design and it's graphical beauty when it released. I think that Age of Conan will be similiar.

Anyway, they've put up a new gameplay preview. Ranged Combat

ost of the ranged combat stances see the action shift into a kind of first person view. The camera zooms into an over the shoulder or first person view and displays a targeting crosshairs. Here you aim with your weapon, and fire towards advancing opponents much like you might find in a FPS game (but not quite as fast-paced). This serves to try and bring the player "there", into the action, and into the world.

The high-fantasy setting isn't the only thing that would make Game of Thrones a fantastic story-based MMO.
