Age of Conan Beta Signups

This Spring Barbarians everywhere are invited to hack and slash their way through Funcoms upcoming MMORPG, Age of Conan Hyborian Adventures. In preparation for the bloodletting and carnage of two parallel beta programs, Funcom have announced the opening of beta signups.

The two beta tests that are being run are the General Beta which tests gameplay, and the Technical Beta which tests things like server load and capacity, and other technical things. The earlier you sign up, the more chance that you have to get in to at least one of the betas.

Remember that Age of Conan is a mature game. It does contain high level violence, and other adult content. If this sort of thing isn’t for you, don’t sign up. But if you’re into dismemberment, decapitation, and arse sculpting, then AoC just might be for you. I’ll be signing up once my PC is back from repairs.

    Not sure about this one…any thoughts stropp? How’s the redesign going?

    I have to admit that it looks very interesting. The graphics look excellent, but as with any game, gameplay is king. I guess we’ll have to wait and see what comes out of the beta for that. They are promising quite a violent game, so I don’t know, it might be a bit too brutal for my taste.

    I was going to work on the redesign over the four day Easter long weekend. Unfortunately, my PC died on Tuesday. Turns out the motherboard and ram were damaged somehow. Just got it back from the shop with new components and cost me A$500. 🙁

    So that’s put me behind a little. I was able to use my iBook for some tasks, but all my tools and ideas were on the PC. Now that it’s back, I should have the new design up in the next few days or by the end of next weekend.

    AoC or the site redesign?

    Not sure if there has been any movement on the AoC beta yet, it’s probably a bit soon for news considering the beta is still a few months away.

    The site redesign is coming along slowly. I decided to build a theme from scratch and found out that it’s a lot more work than I thought. I should have some more news on it in a few days.
