New York Comicon and Beta Raids

Next week is the New York Comicon April 18th-20th. I was asked if I would come out and am really looking forward to it as I have never been to New York. For you fans of the game in the area we will be having an Age of Conan Panel from 2:00 to 3:00 on Sunday. You can also join us for the MMO Round table which will include myself and many other developers from the industry between 4:00 and 5:00.

I do not plan to be overally specific with what we will be talking about as I would like to base the panel heavily off questions those in attendance have. I will be bringing my trusty laptop and hopefully being able to show off some of our latest trailers and maybe some in game stuff also.

Big news on email a couple days ago, as one of my fellow developers put together a video from some of our Beta Players raiding Vistrix. Vistrix is one of the 24 man end game encounters and it was quite heart warming as a designer to see players finally experiencing the challenges we have worked so hard to put together. Raiding whether you like it or not brings together so many elements that it shows off well where the game currently stands on its way to launch.

I have not gotten permission to show it off externally, however I am pushing for getting some similar raw gameplay videos out to you the fans.
