Age of Conan: Unchained + Age of Armor

  • Age of Conan Preview Tells All

    Voodoo Extreme has posted an interesting preview of Age of Conan. Among other things we learn that there is much to see when it comes to character creation!

    Gaute started off by creating a new character from scratch, which turned out to be a smooth experience. First, you choose your race and gender, then you're able to customize how your avatar looked by moving around various sliders. To give us an idea of what the character creator was capable of, Gaute showed us he was able to clone Arnold Schwarzenegger's evil twin in about two minutes. One of the more intriguing—and bound to be popular—options was the "Arse" adjuster, which adjusts the size and shape of your character's derriere. Things suddenly became much more interesting.

  • Five New Concepts

    The official site for Age of Conan was updated Friday with five new pieces of concept art.

    There are five new images added to the gallery today showing a range of Stygian armor inspirations. From clothing the refined and sensual curves of their mysterious women to displaying the ornate grandeur of the finest Stygian armor, our artists constantly strive to capture the essence of the Stygia that comes across so vividly in Howard's descriptions of the dangerous desert kingdom.

    Head over and check them out!

  • New Age of Conan Screenshots: Connall's Valley

    Our latest batch of screens depict "Connall's Valley", and while it might sound like the name of your local dairy (supposing you're still living in the 1950s), these are actually from Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures. Along with the proof site of "ruins" screencaps we got in early November (follow the link to see both), we're starting to get a feel for how the gloomy backdrop of AoC will settle us into a mood somewhere between foreboding and brutal. See for yourself, but these quality shots look like the painting lovechild of an El Greco and a Rembrandt.

  • Take A Look At Conall's Valley

    GameSpy.com has posted an indepth look into a region of Age of Conan called Conall's Valley.

    In the wild and cold lands of northern Cimmeria, at the foot of the mountain known as Ben Morgh, there's a valley torn apart by ages of conflict and war. This deep rift in the Earth here is known as Conall's Valley. This is where a tribe of proud Cimmerians have found their home and their calling as they strive to keep their small settlement out of the clutches of the savage Vanir who continually try to breach their wooden walls.
