  • New Age of Conan Screenshots Focus on Combat and Magic

    Earlier this week, Funcom announced that the public could now sign up for the Age of Conan beta test and begin to participate in the final technical trials of the upcoming MMO. Ever since the Ten Ton Hammer team got a chance to view the game at GDC, we've been looking for every opportunity to see mroe AoC material. The developers at Funcom have been slowly working more and more excitement into the Age of Conan campaign, and this latest set of screenshots only heightens the anticipation for the game. Featuring combat and magic, the images below showcase the violence of Hyboria, the enormity of the monsters, and the radical nature of the supernatural. Check them out!

  • I'm Hearing the Lamentations of the Women....

    For all you barbarians out there, the Funcom team is now taking applications for the Age of Conan beta test! If you've been hiding under a rock for the last few months, I'd recommend you pull yourself out and go sign up for this beta immediately.

    As the gates to the online world of Hyboria are opening, you have the chance to become one of the select adventurers who may answer the call and come to the aid of Conan. The search for beta testers is upon us, and we invite every able man and woman to offer their aid in the quest for a better gaming experience. Now you can make a difference.

    Beta testers get free and early access to the game in order to help the developers track down program errors. Also, they provide valuable feedback on the game design, functionality and fun factor. Please sign up using this form, but please note that applying does not guarantee acceptance.

    Honestly, Age of Conan and Lord of the Rings Online are the two games I have the most excitement for and I can't encourage you enough to go sign up for the Age of Conan Beta!
