I recently took a trip to visit Funcom - the creators of the game that means more to me than any other, The Longest Journey - and had a good poke around Age of Conan. The results of my findings will be appearing in magazines across the land come the new year, as well as the rather extensive results of chatting with TLJ's creator, Ragnar Tørnquist.
While I was out there, I was guided about the very many offices by Funcom's lovely project manager, Jørgen Theraldsen. At the end of the day, he took the opportunity to show off a forthcoming trailer that he'd written and directed, despite being the busiest man in the universe. And now even you, the non-Funcom-visiting scum, can watch it too!
Thanks Gametrailers. We love you. In fact, will you marry us?
Hurrah! Plenty of head-chopping-offness and giant monsters, which the game is all about. Interestingly, it's also a game that focuses heavily on story, but I'm not allowed to say any more or Eidos will come round my house and steal my taps. I should add that all in this trailer is in-game footage, including the rather pretty sunsets. Oh, and the combat - let's just say it's better than it was.
