Age of Conan to feature content from upcoming Conan the Barbarian movie

By on May 24, 2011

Funcom announced today via a press release that their MMORPG, Age of Conan, will receive a new content update this August. The new content will be based on the upcoming Conan the Barbarian movie and promises to tie together the game and the movie. This new adventure pack will let players enjoy epic storylines in Conan’s realm and will be called ‘The Savage Coast of Turan’. Moreover, this pack will feature new encounters, the new area of Ardashir, new dungeons, as well as new armor sets and monsters.

Fredrik Malmberg, Conan the Barbarian Producer and Paradox CEO said:

“We have worked closely with the Funcom creative team since 2003 and carefully crafted a unique look and feel for Conan’s world. Many of the concepts, locations and designs from the game development were utilized by the film team for consistency, and we are thrilled that many elements of the film, distributed by Lionsgate in the US and UK, will feel familiar to the Age of Conan players.”

Craig Morrison, Executive Producer for Age of Conan added:

“We’re excited to see the movie and the game combined in this brand new content. Being able to draw upon the characters, storylines, weapons, and monsters from the movie is tremendously exciting, and it will definitely compliment the wealth of content that already exists within the ‘Age of Conan’ game world.”
