Age of Conan: Unchained + Star Wars: The Old Republic

  • Interview...Part I

    CVG.com has posted the first installment of an interview that have recently done with Erling Ellingson, the project manager for the upcoming Age of Conan.

    Blizzard's all-dominating World of Warcraft is set to face its most serious challenge yet in 2007, a number of new 'big name' MMORPGs preparing to enter the market before the year is out.

    Product manger Erling Ellingsen reveals that on top of creating a compelling MMORPG experience Funcom is aiming to incorporate cross-platform adventuring into Age of Conan. So, while the PC version will release first this October, PC gamers and Xbox 360 gamers could eventually be able to buddy-up and compare oiled muscly pectorals.

  • Class Preview - Lich

    The official site for Age of Conan has been updated with another class preview. This time we are treated to a glimpse at the Lich.

    Of all the mages the Lich is perhaps the most feared by the ordinary travellers. Where the Necromancer animates the dead, the Lich actually embraces and joins the dead, becoming one with the foul and decaying undead they can channel great power from by their sacrifice of parts of their mortal soul and body.

  • This week we take a deeper look into another of the classes available in Age of Conan - The Druid of the Storm.

    Primal and resourceful, these priests of the shamanistic arts are masters of the world around them, at one with nature.

    Their understanding of the world around them also means that they have an almost endless knowledge of natural healing remedies that can keep their allies standing in battle. Not just a healer they can utilise ancient arts, runes and charms passed down by their forefathers to protect and keep allies safe from harm

    You can read more about this here.

    And then discuss here.

  • Interview at Onlinewelten

    Time to brush off your German (or cheat and click for the english version!). Onlinewelten has posted an interview with Product Manager Erling Ellingsen.

    "Cheating is always a tough theme. What is your strategy against cheaters?

    We have a zero tolerance towards cheaters. In the past, with our other MMO Anarchy Online, we’ve struck down on them harshly. People who break such rules will be banned. On the other side, our developers are working hard on creating systems that will minimize the possibilities of cheating. We’re being proactive about this, trying to beat the cheaters to it."
