“It is time for the gloves to come off,” says Game Director Gaute Godager. “This is the first time we will let consumers get their hands on the game at a trade show and we are kicking off by letting them experience the intensity of player-versus-player battles. This is the true Conan experience – bloody and barbaric!”
The siege warfare gameplay, one of the most anticipated features in ‘Age of Conan’, will be shown behind closed doors for select press for the first time ever. In the game guilds will be able to construct entire battlekeeps for themselves and they can even capture and destroy other guild’s battlekeeps by going into battle against them. Players will enter into epic struggles for fame, fortune and land using swords, cavalry and catapults as they charge towards each other on the blood-soaked battlefields of Hyboria.
“In recent years the Games Convention in Leipzig has grown into one of the most important trade shows in the business,” says Funcom CEO Trond Arne Aas. “This is a great venue for us to show off new material from ‘Age of Conan’ and to let gamers play the game for the first time ever at a trade show.”
Everyone is invited to come and play ‘Age of Conan’ themselves in the Eidos area in Hall 3, booth B20. Funcom staff will also be demoing the game to everyone who is interested at the Microsoft area.
