  • New Levels of Escapism in Pvp?

    Stratics takes a look at the upcoming Age of Conan and shares their thoughts with us.

    My favorite idea of their pvp’ing is drunken brawling. I’m really looking forward to getting sloshed and throwing some punches at random people. This type of pvp brings a new level of escapism that I’m personally looking forward to.

    Head over and keep reading.

  • Class Preview - Scion of Set

    The official site for Age of Conan has been updated with the first in a series of looks at the classes that will be found in this upcoming game.

    This week we start taking a look at some of the classes in Age of Conan in a little more detail. First up for this weeks update we travel to the desert lands of Stygia to find out more about the Scion of Set from the Priest Archetype.

    Dedicated to the god Set, the Scions are often considered fanatics whose dedication to their god reaches devotion that many would confuse for insanity. The snake god offers the constant promise of power beyond mortal means and demands nothing short of total commitment in return.

  • Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures - CES Preview Based on interviews with Erling Ellingsen (Product Manager) and Jorgen Tharaldsen (Product Director)

    WarCry Posted this CES interview and preview of Age of Conan. Don't miss a thing!

    We started in character creation and we found ourselves on a slave ship selecting between the Stygian, the Aquilonian and the Cimmerian. Escaping slavery, you are making your way in this brutal, backward world. There is one word I can say about the level of physical character customization possible in Age of Conan, and that is "astounding!" Over 30 different aspects of physical attributes that you can adjust await the eager fans. For example, just for the cheeks alone, you can adjust the length, the width, the height and the depth.

    The same goes for the body. You can create an anorexic woman with huge (and I mean huge!) ta-tas, a man with the physique of Arnie or Pee-Wee Herman as you wish, and as usual, there's the wonderful one-click randomizer. One thing you cannot do is to give your character a pot-belly. Ahem... you are an escaped galley slave after all. But, onto the game and its unique features!

    More is just a click away.

  • Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures, CES Preview

    MMORPG.com's Carolyn Koh had a chance to get some hands on time with this upcoming title. Take a look at her impressions ing this preview.

    Funcom was represented at CES2007 this year in the Games for Windows area in the Las Vegas Convention Center. I don’t usually brave the “zoo” but did so this year for the sake of MMORPG.com readers.

    Despite Windows Vista blue screens of deaths with both computers, we managed to see a little of the newbie experience on Age of Conan. Due to launch in summer 2007, Age of Conan:Hyborian Adventures is three years in the making, and currently in the Friends and Family stage of closed beta.

  • CES Impressions

    FiringSquad has updated their CES coverage today. Here is a glimpse at their thoughts on Age of Conan...

    "But what about the DirectX10 graphics?," you might be asking yourself at this point. "Do they look cool?" The answer we will give based on seeing this early pre-alpha build is, "Kinda." Funcom's visual look for Age of Conan was already on the high side for an MMO title but the demo at CES only looked marginally sharper than most games of this type. The character's faces are a little more detailed and there are some environmental lighting effects (sunlight streaming through trees for example) that look good. But we admit to being spoiled by the DirectX10 demo of Crysis and in comparison, the demo of Age of Conan is currently not the huge leap forward in graphics for MMOs as Crysis is for first person shooters.

  • Age of Conan on DX10

    IGN brings us more previews from the CES floor. This time is a look at Age of Conan on DX 10.

    Age of Conan made a splash at the Consumer Electronics Show by being one of two games, Crysis being the other, to be shown using Microsoft's new and much touted DirectX 10 for Vista. The online action RPG for PC and Xbox 360, though only running on PC here, was a great way to showcase the new Vista platform with some stunning DX10 visuals.
