Behind the tall walls of the King's fortress press and gamers alike can play the game, meet and chat with the developers, collect amazing give-aways and observe live stage shows where Funcom will reveal and demonstrate brand new and never-before-seen locations, content and features that will be put into the recently launched massively multiplayer online game 'Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures' in the months ahead.
In 'Conan' the players will encounter a dark, lush, violent and sinful universe, presented in fantastic graphics and stunning 7.1 surround audio. In a world filled with cruel gods, mythical creatures, lost civilizations and a struggling human race, the mighty barbarian has finally seized the throne as king of Aquilonia. But Conan's rule is on the brink of chaos, spiraling towards the doom of ancient evils. In this twisted fantasy world, dark magic and brutal combat lurks around every corner, and each man and woman must carve their own unique destiny under Conan's reign. In the true vision of Robert E. Howard's dark universe it's now time for you to become a messenger of death.
In addition to incredible graphics and sound, the game will be filled with unique features like the "Real Combat" engine; a revolutionary new multi-point melee system which allows the players to swing their weapons where they direct it, in real-time! This easy to learn and fun melee system lets the players truly feel they are on the battlefield, and goes head-on against the formulaic nature of online RPG combat. In 'Conan' you can also, for the first time in an online RPG, create player-made battle formations where you can command NPC's and other players in combat, making for epic multiplayer battles. The multiplayer game also allow the players to form guilds and lay siege to enemy castles, letting their catapults sing their merry song of death as the enemy is crushed to a pulp.
This latest update introduces the brand new area of Dragon’s Spine including the deep and perilous dungeon known as The Sepulcher of the Wyrm. Players may now travel to the mountainous peaks of Dragon’s Spine deep in the Stygian desert to embark on new and challenging high level adventures.
The history of Dragon’s Spine goes back thousands of years and contains many hidden secrets. The content and quests the players get to experience in this new adventure zone ties in closely with the original stories of Robert E. Howard. Hurried excavations are underway in Dragon’s Spine to uncover the lost treasures of the ancient culture of the Serpent Men.
There are also fears that the alluring and corrupting power of the Emerald Lotus may reemerge, and there are rumors of even darker powers dwelling beneath the Dragon’s Spine.
