I noted with much interest that Age of Conan is set to become free to play in the summer. Seems like a few games are trying out this model (like my current game of choice, Champions Online, although AoC is trying to cash in on the new movie too.
Speaking of the new movie, not thinking much of the trailer (below). I’m quite a big Conan fan and would love the film to be true to the books. Question is whether that would be rubbish as Conan doesn’t have much depth to him as a character. Kill things, get the woman, overcome impossible odds using his unnatural strength and stamina. Suppose it could be ok as a ‘switch brain off’ action flick.
I’m curious now to see if the game draws on the original material too. Be fun playing and spotting book references.
