Age of Conan, Delayed release...Will the 2 months be enough...By: Kere posted at Apr 04, 2008 12:37 pm
As the title states, this is about the new mmorpg set to be released May 20, 2008. This game was origonally set to be released in April and was delayed due to the devs thinking the game wasnt finished enough. Now I must say that I have been anticipating this game for some time now and am seriously ready for it to be released. I have had it on preorder now for around a month (got my mom to buy it for my birthday, which is May 19, 1 day before release), my main reason for the preorder, other than the fact that I really want this game, is for the special siege mount you get for preordering.
Age of Conan is set to be the first "Mature" rated mmo to be released to date. The rating is due to heavy gore and blood and the nudity that exists throughout the game and cinematics. I believe this is a great thing for our genre due to the more kiddy games that I've seen as of late. Like WoW, Flyff, Maplestory, and Pirates of the Caribean which was actually released by Disney. Even SOE (who run games like Star Wars, Matrix, and Vanguard) even has a child-like game coming out called Free Realms. I think that this has the chance to change the whole mmo world and actually give us adult mmo'ers something to look forward to.
Now that I have put in my input on the industry and AoC I want to try to answer question I started with. Will these 2 months be enough? Truthfully, I think its more than enough because as far as I can tell the game has been finished enough to release. Most finished than most mmos are when released, even more done after some games with expansions. My only fear for this game is that it won't get the advertisements it needs to really pull people. I have not seen a commercial on TV for it yet, not that you see a lot of ads for mmos, but I think this is more than necassary for this type of game. Hopefully it will get enough players to not be shutdown shortly after release as we've seen so many times.
So... I ask all of you... Is this enough time? Will there be enough players to keep it up? Is this adult themed game apealing to you?
