Age of FREE-nan!

Oh lawd, that title is awful, but it’s what came to mind at the time.

Anyways, Age of Conan is going “Hybrid” Free to Play.  Free players won’t have full access to the different zones etc. but will be able to level to 80 without having to fork out some cash.  Subscriptions will remain, with subscribers being on a “Premium” account with complete access to all the content the game has to offer.

I did a brief foray into the world of Conan and since have the phrase “Warm Days, Pleasant Nights” stuck in my head from the excellent Tortage tutorial area.  Admittedly, the game didn’t live up to the high standards set by Tortage, but it was still a very solid MMO, with a fantastic almost targetless combat system and some awesome graphics, the “god rays” lighting in particular looks amazing.  I’m going to be dipping back in when the F2P change goes through, probably still have my bear shaman around level 30 kicking about if I can remember the account details.

Anyone else fancy some brutal MMO action?

  • Im definatly gonna check this one out. I played the beta, but wanted to see where it all went before committing to a subscription, and I'm glad I did!

    It seems like Funcom is doing the Turbine-model on f2p and THAT is one of the wisest choices they ever made IMO.

    Looking forward to seeing the game again :)

    • I might have a look but I also have to get back into lotro. ;)

      Rift is my only sub based mmo now.
