Age of Conan game director, Craig Morrison, has posted the latest development update letter on the official AoC forums. Morrison starts off with a discussion of the recent multi-part survey that players were asked to fill out. The results are in and the update focuses on some of the information developers garnered. In addition, fans can download a 20+ page .pdf file with the full results.
Morrison moves on to a discussion of the v2.1 patch that is slated to go live in the next month or two. There are some big changes in store:
Guilds will be treated to some cool new NPCs that allow for having some specific guild social events. This addition will allow you to hold certain new events amongst your guild, like a treasure hunt, a storytelling competition or a demon hunt.
Then we have a new social feature of horse racing. Players will be able to sign up for some new ‘just for fun’ horse races at a track near Old Tarantia, or you might just fancy going along to watch.
The rooftops of Old Tarantia are also now home to an exclusive venue that only most esteemed of guilds can reach, as a little extra fun reward for topping the rankings.
