Age of Conan

April 9th, 2010

Age of Conan is a computer game that offers multiplayer gameplay with people all over the world. The game was released in 2008 so the game is still quite new, as it was not released that long ago. The question what I want to ask is whether the game is such a massive hit, as the fans expected it to be. Those who are familiar with the Massive Multiplayer Online Game universe know that there has not been a lot of innovation recently in online games. One of the main reasons for lack of innovations was World of Warcraft which achieved a financial success, sold millions of copies, and unfortunately, influenced the market to make clones of WoW. I do not find Age of Conan very innovative either, but I have to give it credit for gaining PvP levels, high quality graphics, adult universe, guild cities and siege fights. Those are the qualities which make this game unique, and in these regards it is different than World of Warcraft. It is a quite successful game, but it did not achieve a financial success as some thought it would. As a matter of fact, the CEO of the company sold most of his shares of stock, which proves that he was worried about the financial situation. Later on, the Producer and Game Director Gaute Godager resigned from his post.
