300K Join Age of Conan: Unchained, Movie Tie-in Content Plans

Funcom announces that 300,000 new players have joined Age of Conan: Unchained in the first month since the barbaric MMORPG went free-to-play, doubling the game's revenue stream. "The launch of the hybrid business model has been very successful so far," says Funcom CEO Trond Arne Aas. "The activity levels on the servers are booming with a fourfold increase in players during July, we more than doubled the revenue generated from the game, and we have experienced a positive development in subscriber numbers. This definitely gives us great hope for the game’s future." They also announce plans for new content based on the new Conan the Barbarian movie that opens next week:

To celebrate the revival of Conan the Barbarian on the silver screen, the ‘Age of Conan: Unchained’ development team are hard at work creating a unique, movie tie-in Adventure Pack titled ‘Savage Coast of Turan’. The adventure pack will introduce all new world areas, as well as monsters, characters and player equipment that audiences can experience in the movie as it hits theatres on August 18th.

Glad to see AoC doing good.

Though on a side- topic don't get me started on the new Conan movie. For all intents and purposes it looks to be a copy-paste of Schwarzenegger's Conan, and on that side it likely won't do remotely as good because it'd be hard to top. On the other side of that coin they really should have done one of the original Robert E Howard stories, it had been rumored the story was based off one of his best, Red Nails, but now we see that isn't the case. It pisses me off that they decided to just remake the 82' classic (and likely fail dramatically) instead of going with some of the original Conan work, which blows the shit out of any conan movie, even Arnold's version.
