Two years on from the moderately successful launch of Age Of Conan (I’m not really endorsing it here, I fell asleep after the first bit in the port, and ended up feeling deflated) it seems the Funcom have completed a major expansion for the game, Rise Of The Godslayer. It’s £18 and can be bought by subscribers via digital download from tomorrow. There’s also going to be a new retail push with the game going out bundled with the expansion. The new stuff includes Asian-themed Khitai, which has a new player race, and no level cap increases. Eh, what? Yep, all the new stuff comes in the form of new skills and professions for characters to pursue, giving existing characters more to do, and making them more rounded denizens of made-up-barbarianland. Hooray!

The game site is here and you’ll find a screenshot gallery over at Blues. The press release follows…
Update: Added in trailer.
