  • My Next Vacation Destination: Hyboria

    As a follow-up to all the demos they've been running the last few days, Eidos (the publishers of Age of Conan) and Funcom have released a vast assortment of screenshots for players to pick through. All of these shots, to my knowledge, were straight from the DirectX 10 build of the game and look absolutely stunning. And take my word for it, they look even better when the screen is moving. If you enjoy these pictures, make sure you read our extensive preview!

  • Exclusive Preview: Barbarians at the Gates!

    Robert E. Howard would be proud if he knew just how passionate Funcom was about their upcoming title, Age of Conan. Just a few months from launch, Funcom was providing press with several chances to see the game in action throughout GDC. Ten Ton Hammer was able to go to two of these sessions and have provided you with an extensive and thorough GDC preview of the upcoming game. In this first installment of the preview, Cody "Micajah" Bye takes a look at magic, a dark and corrupt art that is prominent in the Age of Conan.

    If the character takes the path of darkness too far, they may not be able to return. When a character is corrupted to a certain point, he will be plunged into a hell or a place a lot like it. Once this has happened, the character is forced to fight his way back from the depths in order to truly restore life back to his character.

    There is much more just a click away.

  • Conclusion of CVG's Age of Conan Interview

    Today sees the conclusion of the interview on CVG. Don't miss out on what they were able to learn about Funcom's upcoming Age of Conan.

    What occurs in the single-player section of the game, and when that's completed is it a traditional MMORPG that we move into?

    Erling Ellingsen: The single-player feature has changed much since we started designing Age of Conan, mostly due to feedback from the testers in the closed beta. Originally it was designed to be an entire single-player game before you stepped into the massive world, but we've scaled this down somewhat because people generally wanted to be able to interact with other players much sooner.

    Part I if you missed it!
