MMORPG Examines Factions in Age of Conan: Rise of the Godslayer

Posted Tue, Jan 19, 2010 by Martuk

Age of Conan: Rise of the Godslayer will introduce faction play to the game for the first time and this week MMORPG is taking a look at the twelve new factions being introduced with the coming expansion. The first of the two part series takes a look at the new faction system and how it will allow players choose what factions they want to align themselves with, but by doing so, other factions might become hostile or friendly. Each faction will give players access to different kinds of rewards. You might be concerned that you could choose the wrong faction, but if you believe that you will always have the option to betray your new friends.

"By including factions in the expansion we have opened for countless hours of new gameplay, and introduced a diversification from normal gameplay," says Game Director Craig Morrison. "We have also introduced a system where multiple storylines will cross paths, and your actions will directly influence how the story progresses. There will also be opportunities to seek out secret groups, and the players are encouraged to rise through the ranks of their chosen factions."
