Age of Conan Breaks One Million Beta Sign Ups

Posted Tue, May 13, 2008 by Martuk

As Age of Conan Hyborian Adventures readies for launch the hype and popularity of the game is showing as over one million users have registered for beta making it the highest of any MMORPG in the western world. To compliment that high number there have also been over five million unique users that have visited the official site, but that's not all. Last week alone the official forums registered over 115,000 posts. Some people questioned if Age of Conan could give World of Warcraft a run for its money, but the interest to do so is certainly there.

Funcom and Eidos are proud to confirm some of the impressive figures powering the Age of Conan launch, and the two companies are happy to reveal that the Age of Conan Beta has passed 1 million sign-ups! As one of the most anticipated MMO’s ever, the 1 million mark confirms the amazing interest in the game.

“Funcom has not been able to find any higher beta numbers for MMOs in the western world,” said Morten Larssen, VP of Funcom Sales and Marketing. “We believe it represents the largest ever beta sign-up figure in the history of the genre.”
