Join in the festivities for Age of Conan's fifth anniversary.
It's always a joyous occasion when a MMO makes it to their five-year anniversary milestone. To celebrate Age of Conan's fifth anniversary, Funcom, the creators of the free-to-play MMO, are holding a special in-game event where players can slay epic boss monsters for some special rewards.
Starting on May 23, massive boss monsters will begin roaming around in Age of Conan. Word has it that the first monster will be in or around the city of Tarantia. Once they're found, players of all levels can help take them down. After the monsters are defeated, they'll drop some slick rewards that everyone has a chance to win.
Enter the Hyborian Age and become a conqueror in Age of Conan. The unique combat system connects you with your character and lets you feel every brutal blow. Steeped in its pulp fiction roots, Age of Conan is a world of adventure filled with violence, betrayal, and raw sexuality. Its an MMO far removed for weaker fare!
Throughout the event, a new monster will be released in to the world every day, until the fifth and final day of the event when all five monsters will be lumbering around at once. According to the developers, the chance to get powerful rewards for killing the monsters increases each day.
Along with the boss fight event, all players will receive gifts to commemorate the occasion. For example, everyone will get a week-long Access Pass to the land of Khitai, the area that was introduced with the Rise of the Godslayer expansion. Other free gifts can be claimed in the in-game Item Shop.
