Age of Conan: Free to Play

Funcom’s dark fantasy MMO RPG, Age of Conan, became free-to-play on the first of July. The game, based on Robert Howard’s fiction, was said to be going free-to-play in May. Now it has.

Free players can explore the world of Hyborea with no purchase cost, and no subscription is required to continue playing the game. However, like most other F2P games these days, Age of Conan offers players the option to purchase a Premium subscription that gives them access to many extra areas that are off-limits to free players.

If you don’t want the full-on subscription, you can always buy access to extra areas individually through the cash-shop via Funcom points. Cheesy name for the points, we know, but it is worth mentioning that the game is one of the best-looking MMOs out there, and we really recommend you try it if you’re an RPG fan.

The free-to-play trend has taken the gaming world by storm; ever since Valve’s decision to make Team Fortress 2 free-to-play new F2P titles are rushing out faster than you can count them. Seems like it’s the new in-thing in gaming. Let’s see how lasting this trend is.

  1. Thanks for the tip. I’ve been waiting for this.

    Do you play AoC yourself or are you just passing this along? I had tried it upon release and just couldn’t get into it. However, I’m excited to see what changes have been made.

    • I have played it, but I can’t dedicate myself too much to any one game. So I play it sparingly, you know, a little bit of this, a little bit of that. But I do recommend this game to all the gamers out there. The newest expansion pack/update was massive and it really added a lot to the game. Plus, it looks wayyyy better than World of Warcraft. It’s probably the best-looking MMO out there. And the gaming experience isn’t lacking by any means, either.
