Age of Conan: Rise of the Godslayer Summary
Recently Funcom has been in a spot of trouble with Norwegian authorities as they were suddenly under investigation for 'financial impropriety' and even got removed from the Oslo Stock Exchange.
CEO Ole Schreiner has now spoken out on the matter and said "though it was quite a dramatic event," it was soon over. The police only seized "a handful" of PCs.
The latest investor call from Funcom reveals revenue for Q4 2013 is down from last year's $7.78 million in the same period, to $4.27 million this year. Deferred billings, weaker sales and competition are cited.
However their big MMO projects are "relatively stable" with Age of Conan and Anarchy Online their primary revenue. All their MMOs are providing a "cash flow positive".
Age of Conan is celebrating its 5th anniversary with a wave of huge monsters terrorising the MMO world of Hyboria. Beginning tomorrow at 4.00pm CET/10.00am EST there'll be huge boss monsters for five days.
Great rewards are teased for those strong enough to take them down. Funcom are also doubling up XP boosts and Bonus Points to spend in-game, and Access Passes to the Khitai region.
Funcom has announced in its developer update that the crafting system of free-to-play MMO Age of Conan has been completely revamped.
According to the developer, “This is a totally new system. When we sat down and looked at the system and how we could add depth and improve engagement, it became clear that it was better to start over. So rather than try and shoe-horn what we had into something a little more useable, we decided to bite the proverbial bullet and start over.”
Funcom announced today the launch of 'House of Crom', a free update for massively multiplayer online game Age of Conan: Unchained.
This content update offers the chance to explore the ancient halls of The House of Crom, a location that stretches over two vast in-game dungeons. It will be available to both free-to-play and premium players.
"We are very excited to see such a great reaction from the players," says Game Director Craig Morrison.
