Visiting The FunCom Booth

Posted May 20, 2005 by Craig McGregor

Visiting The FunCom Booth

We dropped in to the FunCom booth at the E3 Expo and talked with them about the future of Anarchy Online as well as their upcoming MMORPG "Age of Conan".  A glimpse at our mini-preview is below:

FunCom is taking the opportunity at E3 both to update a familiar favorite game and to introduce an exciting new game to the MMO world. The appointment-only demos in their booth took place in a room hidden behind the barbarian throne. Many attendees thought the action was out front, where inflatable swords were being handed out by the carload. However, it was in the small demo room where people got to see the really thrilling stuff.

First was the next expansion for Anarchy Online. Entitled Anarchy Online: Lost Eden, it represents a move toward more SciFi content, per user requests. To meet that request, FunCom is introducing some exciting things for AO players. Player controlled mechs will make their debut in the new expansion. Shades of Mechwarrior flashed across the screen as game director Morten Byom controlled his formidable robot through a cityscape. Players will also be able to control artillery, call in air strikes, and mine the battlefield as they participate in the escalating conflict between Omni-Tek and the Clans. To assist their side, players may donate experience to their factions.
