Garrett Fuller had the chance to check out Funcom's Age of Conan at the recent Game Developers Conference.

At GDC this week, we were lucky enough to get a chance to look at the new demo for Age of Conan. Funcom is certainly putting the polish on this title and continues to work to make the game look and feel like the barbaric Hyborian world that Robert E. Howard had created. Last time we saw the game was at E3 back in May. The look of the game has been upgraded considerably in the graphics department with a very crisp texture and great artwork in the world. Despite having the launch delayed, it seems like the team are in the polishing phases before they plan for Beta in the coming months. Some of these features you may have heard of before, but several new elements were also shown at GDC.

In regards to character creation, players can start out as a Cimmerian, Aquilonian, or Stygian. Funcom describes each with the Cimmerians as the barbaric viking type race, Aquilonia as ancient Rome around the time of its fall, and Stygia as having an Egyptian influence. The customization in the character creation is very in depth. Players can spend a long time creating the look of their characters or allow for the game to randomly give you a certain look.

That is the first i have seen them mention PC and 360 players being on the same servers. That isn't really news i am crazy about.  I was hoping they were two very different games... I'm not sure I can be happy with the depth of a CONSOLE MMO :(

FFXI has great depth, and it's on consoles.

Why all the console hating?  If you don't like it, then don't play the damn game.  Simple enough.  Consoles are in a new age and bringing MMo's to the consoles is just opening up the genre more than WoW did.  My Xbox 360 supports my keyboard, I use it alot for typing and so on.  I'm sure that in the future it will also bring support to possibly the mouse?  Time will only tell...and AoC will rock.

Yeah consoles are what the devs of MMOs yearn for. They know that the number of console outnumber PCs. Now that it seems the technology is allowing the MMO industry to cross platforms that will be the standard

Hi all, long time lurker, Game on listener

great article; lots of new info. Would like to see you guys do an interview with Funcom for game on. Hopefully you're one step ahead of me and recorded something during gdc (hint hint)

would love to know more about the dark and light paths mentioned

i'd like to hear more about the light/dark paths as well and how they actually affect gameplay (if at all) in addition to how your character looks.

i'm also really interested in the social me and lots of people that is one of the most important things, i can fight instances anywhere :P

could you, at some point, further explain how pvp is 'guild only' ? off the bat that doesn't sound good, but if the guild creation is more easy and more a part of the game as this article lets on, then it could work fine. does this mean there is always open worldwide pvp? is there pvp in only non-npc areas? are there pvp 'games' like capture the flag, etc.? is pvp kept only to one guild attacking another guild's instanced town? not sure how to interpret this, anything more would be great!

thanks for the article!

Every time I think "This could flop if they don't do X correctly." more information is released. Not only does this reassure me but now I want to play it even more. I didn't think that was possible.

Good news, they definitely stir up my interest.

Because games developed with consoles in mind have terrible controls, that's why. Just think of Oblivion, whose interface is plain bad and has to be modded at least with BTMod to be playable.

Controllable territory, combat that requires some player skill (not just repetitive 1-2-3 button pressing ad nauseum), interesting character customization for all the RPers out there, varied quests that reflect the truly brutal world, all wrapped up in a shiny polished box...

My boner for this game gets bigger every day.

As for the cross-console thing, to be honest I don't care who I'm carvin' steaks out of. Bring 'em on.
