"At the Leipzig Game Convention, Age of Conan product manager Erling Ellingson and someone named Torgen (?) gave a demonstration of the upcoming new content for the game. I wasn't there, but MMO site Massively has linked to a German site hosting the video. So I watched it, which was like being there.
The video doesn't do much for me, as I'm pretty soured on Conan right now. In the past, the developers at Funcom did a great job updating Anarchy Online, which had a similarly rocky launch. But Anarchy Online had the advantage of being one of the only sci-fi themed MMOs. Age of Conan, on the other hand, competes directly with three tremendous games: Lord of the Rings Online, Warhammer Online, and, of course, World of Warcraft. It's going to have a heck of a time trying to catch up. But Funcom isn't giving up."
