Next AoC Update Plans

Posted Tue, Nov 18, 2008 by Morvelaira

DX10 dungeons are on their way

New Age of Conan director Craig Morrison is doing his best to turn heads and seems to be succeeding. In his latest letter to the community, Mr. Morrison is outlining his plans for what comes next. Specifically, DX10 dungeons.

We are now preparing to take the DirectX 10 version of the game from our internal testing servers out to the public test servers, so you can see it for yourselves. The next major game update will include this version of the game and make it available for everyone with the appropriate hardware to enjoy. Since the outset we have been determined that the new DirectX 10 functionality would not just be a ‘gimmick’ addition to the game and would add visual quality to the game, we feel that the version we are preparing now for testing does achieve this and in a way that will find the right balance between visuals and performance. We have also gone to great lengths to try and make virtually all the DirectX10 features customizable so that you can find the right balance between features for the performance level of your hardware. What we did not want to do was push this version out too early and not see the real added benefits this technology can bring. I am really looking forward to players getting to experience some of the new visual improvements that this new technology allows. It really brings an even further splendor to the game world.

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