Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures Q&A

Gamecloud has published a Q&A with Funcom’s Jørgen Tharaldsen about their upcoming single and multi-player RPG, Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures. A snip:

Q: What are some of the more unique aspects of the Conan title?

A: Besides being set in the universe of the world’s greatest fantasy hero, I think the combination of single player vs. multiplayer is completely unique, the (real combat) engine is also unique, and so is formations, hiving monsters, a completely new humanoid AI, incredible graphics (and art direction) compared to direct competitors, a unique 7.1 interactive sound system, the inventive new PvP options, the amazing layered animation system, the unique magic system.I could go on and on with this.

However, the important thing is not how many unique features we have. At the end of the day it’s the chance to live, adventure and experience the ambience of this brutal and deep fantasy world which will make people flock to the game. The second we get too focused on communicating (hundreds of this, thousands of that) we are falling into the trap of (mechanizing) the unique experience you will get in this game. It’s all about the opportunity to truly BE a barbarian, fighting for your life in the harsh world of Hyboria.
