Age of Conan: Unchained – The Hyborian Age MMORPG goes free-to-play

Hello fellow Conan movie fans (Waldgeist here :))! Since Funcom will be releasing a movie tie-in for the upcoming Conan Movie, I thought it would be a good opportunity to inform you, that Funcom has changed the business model for the MMORPG Age of Conan and renamed it to Age of Conan: Unchained. It’s now a hybrid model with an item-shop and a free-to-play component!

Funcom has been working together with Lionsgate to promote the movie and they’ve been likewise pointing people to the virtual version of the Hyborian Age, so I’d thought I’d share this little fact with you too, just in case you want to jump in and try Age of Conan: Unchained and be ready for the Savage Coast of Turan movie-tie in later this year, to follow in the footsteps of Movie-Conan to the land of Turan, to meet characters from the movie some twenty years later.

A little teaser for you: our very own Taranaich has also sent out a couple of questions to the Funcom Team about the movie-tie in, which we hope to get back after the summer break (some time in August).
