Not only did Funcom declare that a million signed up for the open beta, and indeed boast that the Collector's Edition sold out pre-launch, but now it appears to be one of the fastest selling PC games of all time.
400,000 people are already playing in the lands of Hyboria in the first few days, announce Funcom, rather excitedly. YouGamers point out that this is still a couple of hundred thousand short of the server capacity, but it's only been available for the weekend - helpfully a holiday weekend in both the US and UK. Funcom CEO Trond Arne Aas states,
"The initial sales and reviews are very encouraging, and it’s great to see that so many are enjoying Age of Conan. This is just the beginning, and we already look forward to massive updates and cool new features. We believe our focus on making Conan unique and groundbreaking is a key reason for the initial success. This is a focus we will keep and reinforce, and players can expect continued quality and innovation as we enter a new era for the game."
He failed to add: and here is a video of the game where a lady shows her boobies.
