Age of Conan 360 won't "just be a port" says Funcom

"...this is not going to be just a port from the PC, but we're actually going to great lengths to make a tailored version for the Xbox 360"

Xbox 360 might have only dipped a toe into the MMORPG waters to date but developer Funcom is confident that its forthcoming Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures will be a success on the console.

Product manager Erling Ellingsen reckons this is because of how well the game "sits with the action-oriented audience".

"We have just as high hopes for this version of the game," Ellingsen continued in an interview with CVG. "Combat in Age of Conan is dynamic, real-time and hands-on - something that will make it work much better on a console than what has been possible with other MMOs."

i'm actually getting excited for this game. I hope it is a load of fun!

It's an ORPG. Will a tailored version use / connect the same servers for PC and 360 Players?
Anyway: I really enjoyed the first conan movie. It lead Arnold S. straight to the californian throne.(Where he still sits like in the movies end)

in my humble opinion, the 360 needs " ALOT MORE " single player RPGs!

though I can't wait for Two Worlds and Mass Effect. I thought Blue Dragon has been dated for around June 07?

Grown Folks Talk4893d ago

how many are you going to play at a time? personally, almost every game is a dust magnet for me once mass effect comes out. at least for a few weeks.
