One Year Anniversary!

One Year Anniversary!

Time to celebrate! This week Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures celebrates one year of operation, and you have been cordially invited to this week's Hyborian celebrations. To celebrate this magnificent event, the court of Conan has prepared some exciting gifts that will be freely distributed out to all Hyborians.

Letter from the game director!

Craig Morrison

Game Director on Age of Conan, Craig Morrison, has taken a moment to reflect on the one year anniversary. He also takes the opportunity to talk more about the upcoming update to the game, focusing on some of the less known features that the update will introduce such as social pets, more populated guild cities and more. Read the letter here.

Celebrate with a bang!

Free fireworks for everyone!

What better way to celebrate a year of existence than coloring the sky? Starting from today, all characters will be granted a firework item that can be ignited once every eight hours. That is quite a long cool down – so use it wisely! To receive your firework, simply type /claim when you are in the game and the firework item will be put in your backpack.

Capture The Festivities

Take a Screenshot and Win

Using your fireworks wisely, and capturing it in a screenshot, could prove valuable to you. We have teamed up with GameRigs who will be hosting an Age of Conan One Year Anniversary Screenshot Competition starting today and ending on Monday May 25th. All you have to do is capture the festivities in a screenshot - in any way you like, let your creativity run wild - and send it to GameRigs and you might end up winning some exclusive loot! For more information, please check the GameRigs competition website.

Anniversary forum competitions

What better way to really make yourself seen on the forums and stand out of the crowd! The three competitions run until 20th of May so hurry up if you want to participate! Enter here.

Digging Up Some Old Photos

Age of Conan is a good-looking game, no doubt about it, and with the recent launch of DirectX 10 functionalities it looks even better. We took a stroll down memory lane to look at how the game looked several years before release, while it was still being worked on by the team. How things have changed! Here are a few very, very old screenshots:
