AoC Letter from the Game Director Outlines the Road Ahead

Posted Mon, Feb 22, 2010 by Martuk

Game Director Craig Morrison laid out the road ahead for Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures in his February "Letter from the Game Director", which details the coming 1.07 update and new features that will soon be making their way into the game, most notably an offline progression system for subscribers. Morrison also explained plans to enhance the in-game travel system by adding more travel options within the various playfields.

Now when we looked at it, we felt that the travel between regions was pretty well handled now. What we wanted to address was the travel within the playfield. So in the next update you will find more travel options within the playfields themselves. New wagoner NPCs will be present in major outposts and quest hubs who will allow players to travel to notable locations within that playfield. So for example in the Eiglophian Mountains you will find the new NPC in the village of Dinog and he will offer one way transportation to a number of locations such as the Hunting Lodge, Ymir’s Pass or Yakhmar's Cave.

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