OP  3/18/10 11:15:40 AM#1

MMORPG.com was on hand for the Age of Conan Rise of the Godslayer expansion presentation at this year's Game Developers Conference.

We got the chance to sit down with Funcom at GDC to check out the Age of Conan expansion. If you are a Conan fan you will appreciate the story they put into it, plus some of the features that are on the way. Funcom has really brought Conan up from its rough beginnings and Rise of the God Slayer looks to add some fun elements for both players and fans alike.

The story of the expansion begins with the Tower of the Elephant. If you have not read the story go do it now. Conan as a thief meets a creature from another dimension with the head of an elephant. The creature has great power and is held captive by a wizard. In the end Conan frees the creature back to its realm where it kills the wizard. The Heart of the Elephant, which Conan wins, soon crumbles to dust. We learn that Yog Kosha, the creature had great influence in Khitai, the Hyborian equivalent of China. That is where the story leads us and where the expansion takes place.

Read the Rise of the Godslayer Preview.

Cheers,
Jon Wood

Ammagad have you seen the face of that new mount? Looks like a big rat. Scary.

Nice to see an expansion doing something else than adding levels and forgetting all old content ... can be nice! Looking forward to more info.

I'm still level 30 so I got time :p

I have been spending a crapload of time in AoC, the game has taken leaps and bounds in the right direction, FC is focusing more on story and they are taking what was great about Tortage and adding it to the rest of the game hell even the community (At least the PVE communiyi) has also greatly Improved.

This sword here at my side dont act the way it should
Keeps calling me its master, but I feel like its slave
Hauling me faster and faster to an early, early grave
And it howls! it howls like hell!

I liked MMOs better when gamers didn't play them, and just geeks did.

3/18/10 4:46:01 PM#6

I really like how this xpac isn't about getting more levels, but rather, rounding out the game so that is becomes a more full and complete experience from start to finish.


Tower of the Elephant is one of the better Conan stories I've read to date. Good choice.

Just starting to wane on Fallen Earth a little, so this might just be perfectly timed for me if they do launch before the summer! I have to say that I like the idea of stressing choice and not giving us everything. It might even add some more dynamic PVP scenarios if players can really actually create diverse builds.

Hey, Stradden...nice of you to ruin the story of The Tower of the Elephant for those who haven't already read it.  You tell them to go read it, then reveal the ending......how....thoughtful.

I'm sorry, but the statute of limitations on spoilers definitely expires when the original work was written in 1933.

By the way Gandalf comes back to life in Lord of the Rings, Bruce Willis was a ghost the entire time in The Sixth Sense, and it turns out you are Darth Revan in Knights of the Old Republic.

The only time you run out of chances is when you stop taking them.

Mr Willis was a Ghost? noooo, surely not?

The Tower of the Elephant is a good story even if the ending is said here, I like how it ties in with the game and other lore points. I suspect there are plenty of other suprises in store for the player.

Lol, a buddy got upset on me because I told him Jean D'arc was burned in the end. I replied that don't see Titanic then because the boat sinks and he didn't see the funny in that.
 

Still, this is the most famous Conan story and one of the most famous fantasy stories ever written so if you play a mmoRPG you should know about it.

As for the expansion, it is great that they kept the number of levels because the content really is rather thin and new zones all the way up is the main thing the game needs (together with more dungeons).

The bad thing I saw was that we still have to do Tortage. T is maybe the best starting zone I seen in a MMO but a single starting zone gets boring in any game and I was tired of Tortage already in the beta. They really should start working on a new starting zone too or make it possible for players that passed T once or twice to be able to start the game as lvl 20 instead.

The mix between single player game and MMO also kinda gets boring after the first time, to have a long tutorial isn't that bad but in other games you can usually skip the tutorial, particularly after you already done it once.

I havn't played AoC in a year now but I will be back once the expansion comes out.

I just got done reading it the other day. I'm making my way through the Conan series (while taking a short detour to get my scare on, with "IT" by Stephen King). So far, The Tower of the Elephant has been my favorite little short story in the book I've been reading. I won't add anymore spoilers to the list here, but it was very good.

By the way, Robert E. Howard's works are in the public domain, so if anyone wants to they can read The Tower of the Elephant and many, many other Conan stories and essays online: en.wikisource.org/wiki/Author:Robert_E._Howard

Why would you get fooled and by what? Age of Conan is currently a very good game. I've been playing it for the past month and it's some of the most fun I've had in an MMO in a while.

I have heard that it sucked at launch, but the game is supposed to have come a very long way.

Thanks to my skills in speed reading before actually reading (it  involves Russia!), I've managed to read most of the thread without actually spoiling the original story itself! All power to speed reading! And no, I'm not coming back to check the replies! :)

Definitely looks promising.  Kudos for fleshing the game out giving more depth.  I too would have liked to see a new starting zone but I guess we can't have everything we want.
