Funcom sends word that this year’s Games Convention in Leipzig will be invaded by Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures’ siege warfare system. The new system will be shown to select press behind closed doors, while gamers will be able to take part in PvP battles on the show floor.
“It is time for the gloves to come off,” says Game Director Gaute Godager. “This is the first time we will let consumers get their hands on the game at a trade show and we are kicking off by letting them experience the intensity of player-versus-player battles. This is the true Conan experience – bloody and barbaric!”
The siege warfare gameplay allows guilds to construct entire battle-keeps for themselves and even capture and destroy other guild’s battle-keeps by going into battle against them. It will be shown off in the Eidos area in Hall 3, booth B20. The game will also be demoed at the Microsoft area.
