Default Age of Conan - Updated Impressions @ Gamespot

December 15th, 2006, 21:35
Gamespot has a preview of Age of Conan with their updated impressions of the game.
Age of Conan is currently undergoing a closed beta test, so a limited number of outside testers have been playing the game and offering feedback. Based on that input, a notable change has been made to how soon you'll be able to start playing with other players. Age of Conan is different from a lot of massively multiplayer online role-playing games in that you can play it as a single-player game, and then once your character hits level 20 experience, you can start playing it as an online game with others. This lets you create a powerful character on your own terms before you venture into the online fray. However, if you're starting the game over again with a new character, you might want to get into the multiplayer action faster so you won't be restricted to level 20 if you want to jump into the online play sooner.
Godager gave us a quick tour of various aspects of the game, from the early stage when you create a character to some of the later stages. You'll start the game as a galley slave on a sailing vessel. If you create a male character, you'll be one of the poor saps who has to row all day long, while female characters are consigned to some of the quarters. But don't worry; you won't be a slave for long. After you finish creating your character, you'll escape and find yourself washed ashore with nothing but a broken oar as your weapon; from there, you'll be able to determine your own destiny.
