Age of Conan: Preview with Screens

Posted Thu, Dec 14, 2006 by LadySirse

Lots of New Screenshots!

Vault Network has posted a preview of Age of Conan today. It includes lots of new screenshots as well as a look at the upcoming game.

It appears that the game will begin in a traditional fashion, with an extensive character-creation editor for shaping the look of your in-game persona. Sliders enable minute changes to your character’s appearance, and the results are quite realistic—certainly more lifelike than most current-day MMOs.

Interestingly enough, there’s not a lot of early determination of your character’s “history” or attributes. After you choose a gender and craft your character’s appearance, you only have the option to select a class from Aquilonian, Cimmerian or Stygian. No skill-point allocations or other determinations are thrown at you. It’s only when you achieve Level 5 that you can choose from an archetype: Mage, Priest, Rogue or Soldier.
