Age of Conan: Rise of the Godslayer

Funcom announces Age of Conan: Rise of the Godslayer, the first expansion for Age of Conan: Hyborean Adventures, their Robert E. Howard-inspired MMORPG. Here are some screenshots, and the Age Of Conan: Rise of The Godslayer Website is online with media and information on the add-on, which does not yet carry a release date. Word is:
Players will discover vast new locations in `Rise of the Godslayer', such as the far-stretching Northern Grasslands, the deceptively serene Chosain Province and the magnificent Pillars of Heaven. Adventurers will find that the new regions are torn apart by conflict between its inhabitants, and you will be able to take part in these conflicts by joining up with many of the warring factions. Faction gameplay plays a large role in `Rise of the Godslayer', presenting the player with choices that earn them both allies and enemies in Khitai. Through questing and adventure players can advance through faction ranks, rewarding them with incredible treasures such as epic new armor and weapons. Players can choose to continue their adventures with existing characters, acquiring new combat abilities and spells through a robust alternate advancement system, or start over again as a Khitan – an all-new culture. No matter what the choice may be, adventurers will find a wealth of new high-level content, but also low-level content in Khitai available immediately after leaving Tortage Island. The expansion also introduces new mounts such as the Tiger, and through adventure players will see them grow from a weak cub into a ferocious fighting companion.

I read that the “robust alternate advancement system” means they’re not raising the level cap and will instead be implementing EVE style skill increases. It’s nice to see them copying successful games that aren’t WoW, but it’s something they should’ve thought of before releasing this unimaginative shambles.

Perhaps if I had even a sliver of trust left in FunCom I'd consider trying it again, but as it stands I didn't even bother trying the "come back" trial they sent out. They may have fired a game director, but the company was too intent on lying about what they would accomplish. FunCom will have to get a damn good track record with coming through on their promises for a couple years before I would give them another shot.

I hope this expansion is a huge success. Then perhaps someone will want the three collectors editions I have gathering dust in my closet.

I can't even give them away at the moment.

The thickness of your ignorance, it's like a fucking shield that repulses insight.

I wish you guys luck with the game, I really tried to like AoC, even had a friend offer to buy the game for me if I would play it, during my trial.

I always play some type of mage, necro or mezzer, but AoC actually has the worst mage classes in the history of gaming. No such thing as root, slow, stun and sure they hell ain't no kiting here. Hell, paper tank, they beat you like a tin can, it's designed like that and all you do is sit there spamming your best damage to cast time spell (which happens to be the first spell you ever get, iirc) 24/7.

hey fion, are you an AOC dev? 'cause your post reads like an advertisement.
i'm a fellow AOC player, and some of the shit you posted was actually true.
which new gear exactly is it that looks great? AOC gear has been brown and gray for a long long time now. it looks very realistic, but it's never been fun, and unless you like detailed boring realism, it's not great at all.

i'll be buying the expansion, cause i'm subbed to the game and still enjoying it, but don't you do the same because of viral fanboi like posts like that one.

AoC has recovered from its launch and then some. If you're of the mind that you think you could have enjoyed it but left because of release issues/lack of content, give it another shot. The population is very solid and the added content since launch (and especially since the new lead dev, Craig Morrison, took control of the game) is very fleshed out and a lot of fun.

Those of us in the community have known the expansion would be in Khitai for a good while now. (Basically the 'far east' of Hyboria, with similarities to feudal China.) Screenshots are fantastic and the new gear looks incredibly cool. I'm glad to see the expansion will include the land not just as a new themepark zone or two but the players can play Khitai themselves. Very cool.

This will be the best AoC, they are raising the level cap to 300, it's so high and full of content, it must be the best mmog!

It had plenty of mid-level content... I was never out of content while I played into the high fifties/60's (Eiglophian Mountains).

I believe after that things petered out.

I really wish this game had initial success rather than plagued with failed promises, terrible crafting and devoid of mid-level content.

Maybe it still has hope though, I would like to give it another chance in the near future if it fixed some of these issues.
