Age of Conan game director, Craig Morrison, has penned the final letter of 2009. In it, he takes a look back at 2009, gives a peek at v1.06, and a status update on the expansion, Rise of the Godslayer. Keep reading!
The expansion testing is now gathering pace every week. Hopefully many of you were able to watch the live broadcast we had direct from the beta servers and Chosain Province. It was a little nerve wracking to be doing an actual live stream of the game, this was a medium we hadn't really used before and as a developer you are always nervous when doing live demonstrations. I think it worked really well though and it is definitely something we will consider doing again in the future. If you haven't seen it yet you can check it out here.
The broadcast showed almost an hour of live gameplay from the expansion and highlights a lot of what we are trying to achieve with the gameplay there!
Internally the vast majority of the content for the first three playfields is now complete and we are in the middle of the second iterations on those areas. The final two areas are also coming together very nicely now, and I am particularly looking forward to showing people locations like the crater in Kara Korum. The team are doing a wonderful job in bringing Khitai to life and I can't wait to be able to share it with you all next year.
