Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures will be free-to-play

| |

Some noteworthy news for the day came in the form of Funcom having two announcements about the once very popular MMORPG, Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures. The first announcement came via an interview with Eurogamer about a new expansion pack that is currently in development for the game and it will be released later this year. The second announcement was a bit more festive (and current) as it involves Age of Conan allowing certain players to have free-to-play access for a limited time.

According to an article on Blend Games, the new expansion pack will be revealed for the MMORPG this upcoming August, at the GamesCon in Germany.

Following shortly on this news was the announcement by Funcom that players who have closed accounts on Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures can re-activate their accounts and receive two whole weeks of free-to-play service. It’s not a bad deal and presumably a promotional campaign set in place to retrieve players who abandoned the game due to many of the bugs and glitches, something the company has promised to fix.

“For anyone with an inactive account who ever thought about giving it another try, this is your chance,” says Morten Larssen, Vice-President of Sales and Marketing at Funcom. “After the hugely successful launch last year we immediately started working on updates that would make the game better and provide more content for players, and that is what we have been doing this past year. With the most recent update just out the door, this is the time to ask players to come back and see the results!”

Gamers who are interested in this new promotion for the game can learn more by visiting the Official Age of Conan Website. Be sure to stay tuned in for further updates regarding the new expansion and the updates for the game.
