  • 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.

  • Crafting in Age of Conan

    The official site for Age of Conan has been updated with another Gameplay Preview. This preview gives us a look at crafting and what we can expect to see when the game launches.

    Whilst the bare hands and ingenuity of a warrior can take them far, even in the brutal realm of King Conan, they are though even better served with some well forged steel or finely made iron sheathed by their side.

    Weapons and armor are the tools by which those whose adventures find them in the dangerous lands of Hyboria live or die by. Likewise there is always a need for potions and other medicinal aids, as even the hardiest of warriors can find themselves in need of recovery.

    Don't miss a thing! Get clicking to read more. Is Age of Conan on your must play list? Tell us why in the forums right here at Ten Ton Hammer.
