Age of Conan Beta Event

Funcom Announces plans to conduct a PvP Age of Conan beta event for 15,000 players from April 18-20. The event is being conducted in conjunction with GameSpot, so a free registration is required, as detailed on this sign-up page. Word is:

Durham, USA April 9th, 2008 Eidos and Funcom is proud to announce a unique Beta partnership with, one of the world's biggest gaming websites. In a highly exclusive event, 15,000 gamers from across the world can log in and play Age of Conan, non-stop, from Friday April 18th to Sunday April 20th. The unique PvP weekend allows lucky gamers to test a limited part of the PvP functionality of Age of Conan, and the two different PvP mini-games Capture the Skull and Team Annihilation will be available.

To make the weekend even more interesting Eidos and Funcom also includes the engaging Age of Conan character creation system, allowing players to create avatars with strong personalities. All 12 classes in the game, including the barbarian, can be picked and tested, with Funcom transforming each character into a fully specced level 20 death machine. In PvP lobbies players can then chat and socialize, prior to entering PvP matches. Participants are urged to test different classes, and offer any feedback on the forums. There will also be forums on where people can talk about the event, and Funcom staff will be present to gather feedback.

"The truth of the matter is that funcom is out of development funds and needs to release this game next month."

Oh so what you're saying is that they are precisely in the same position they were in when they pushed Anarchy Online out the door.
