Age Of Conan Going Free-To-Play

28 May 2011, 14:33

Funcom have recently announced that their brutal 2008 MMORPG, Age of Conan: Hyrbodian Adventures, will adopt an F2P business model later this year. Relaunching as Age of Conan: Unrated, anyone (PC specs provided) will be able to play the core game without charge, though like many free-to-play MMOs, there is still a premium subscription offer which will enable numerous privileges. These include bonuses such as additional bank space, character slots, classes, vendor discounts, raids etc. Funcom Points will also play a part in AoC’s relaunch, acting as a virtual currency to purchase in game items. Points are also transferable between Funcom’s recently published title, Bloodline Champions.

Age of Conan: Unrated is expected to launch during the summer, for a full FAQ visit the game’s official EU forum board.

Anyone thinking of playing again because of this?

Lots of games going this way lately. Everquest 2 has a server with this model too. Champion Online went freemium too. And all started from DDO and LotRo.

So AoC is trying to pull people using this and the film coming out this summer.
