9.3 Million Accounts Compromised In Epidemic Of Forum Hacks: Funcom, Epic, And More

A rash of hacks in the past two months has left the usernames, emails and passwords from at least twelve gaming forums compromised, including those of Unreal creator Epic Games and Secret World developer Funcom. Other breaches include a GTA fansite and, as previously reported, the official forums of Dota 2. All the attacks involved an exploit in the forum's software, which the hackers used…

Conan Roars Secrets Of Dragon’s Spine, Pushes Wheel

Cats and babies share a thought pattern. Whatever situation they're currently in, they assume will be the basis for their existence forever. Whether hungry, or shut in a cupboard, they will wail because they believe this is what life is now, and everything they can't currently see or experience is gone for all eternity. (Everyone puts babies in a cupboard sometimes.) This also describes me,…

Age Of Conan Taking Pages From Secret World’s Book

Hand-me-downs are for the weak. Real¬†fictional computerized barbarians use hand-me-ups, because they don't abide by tradition. They destroy it. Actually, no, they don't do that at all. Instead, if Age of Conan's any indication, they observe it closely and make a series of measured decisions based on heaps of empirical data - in this case, data collected by The Secret World and its recent successes.…

Age Of Conan: Unchained Arrives Tomorrow

Age of Conan's free-to-play reshuffling, Age of Conan: Unchained, arrives tomorrow. How do we know? Well, it'd be pretty hard to do this job if we didn't know stuff like that. Also, a launch trailer just came out. John's comprehensive detailing of the "freemium" business model and what changes to expect can be found in the above link (including new content that'll relate to the…

Age Of Conan Going F2P, And Unrated

It's all change in the Age Of Conan. First he was promoted to replace Leno, then Leno screwed him over and they tried to bump him back to midnight, but no, he cried, and now his show on TBS is going grea... Oh wait, I made a comedy mistake that about no one outside America will get! Of course I mean Funcom's MMO, Age Of…

What Is Best In Life? Free Stuff

Funcom have announced that Age Of Conan's trial will, up to January 1st, allow anyone who signs in to play up to level 20 for free. That's the whole of Tortage Island, arguably one of the best bits of the game. Thanks to the dangers of gold-farming scum exploiting this system you won't be able to trade with other players or use public chat channels…

Not-so-Funcom – Delays, Lay-offs

Aieee! Seems Age of Conan devs Funcom aren't in the rudest of health - they've just announced 20% of their workforce is being let go, and their hopefully-incredible MMO The Secret World has been delayed by "some months." Conan's upcoming expansion isn't affected, apparently. Best of luck to those who've lost their jobs, and, selfishly, let's hope The Secret World doesn't have to compromise itself…

Axetheism: Age of Conan: Rise of the Godslayer

To all good things, a sequel. To pretty much all things, an expansion pack. News breaks that Funcom are releasing an expansion for Age of Conan. GODSLAYER! Which is the sort of thing which demands capital letters. The add-on pack promises "more brutal, sexy and savage adventure" which is something that RPS is all very fond of, except Walker who prefers kindly, affectionate and sensitive…

Age Of Resubscription?

Funcom send word that they are promoting the encroaching one year anniversary of Age Of Conan with a chance for lapsed subscribers to see how the game has changed in the past months. And it's expanded fairly extensively, with a region full of giants, a "cityscape", and loads of tech fiddling, including the DX10 stuff. The re-evaluation offer apparently contains no subs obligation, and will…

Conan Update: “Epic And Memorable”

The other big MMOs aren't taking Lich King fever lying down. Age Of Conan game director Craig Morrison has said that the latest free update for the MMO, which has just gone live, contains "one of the most epic and memorable monster encounters ever created for the game." The new expansion, Ymir's Pass, contains a new tract of land to explore, new quests, monsters and…

Age Of Conan Buddy Program

Want to try sword-swingin' MMO Age Of Conan for free? Then you need to poke someone who is already playing with a collector's edition of the game, and get them to send you one of their buddy program invites. Funcom have said that all retail copies will soon have the buddy program invites, which are free trials lasting seven days. Folks who have invites to…

Age Of Conan: The 700,000

"More than 700.000 gamers have registered an Age of Conan account so far," say the boys at Funcom. That means that it's in second place behind World Of Warcraft's twenty-nine-gajiloplex players. I have to admit that I've now lapsed and haven't touched Conan's glistening textures for over a week. I've no intention of going back any time soon. I do want to get to that…

I Got Erection: Turbonegro and Age of Conan

As well as announcing that Turbonegro (above) will be contributing exciting punk rock music to their MMO, Funcom have released some details about what to expect from the next few updates to Age Of Conan. Top of the list is changes to PvP to deal with the ganking of lower level players, as well as some specific PvP gear, in a patch which should appear…

“It Was This Big”

After Kotaku's highlighting of Age of Conan's Best NPC Of All Time (above) I was reminded to ask Tom Francis at PC Gamer UK to post his account of what is probably the Second Best NPC Of All Time, Thedret The Exaggerator. Possibly my favourite story of an in-game bug, ever. I love my Thedret because no-one else has one. It took Valve six years…

Blizzard Plays Nicely With The Other Boys

Blizzard appear to take a very approachable attitude toward rival MMOs. But then, I suppose if I were a 5000 foot mountain, I'd probably not make too big of a fuss about the surrounding hillocks spoiling my view. However, it's nice that they don't take the attitude of "DESTROY THEM! DESTROY THEM ALL!" In fact, they're humble enough to concede that their reign will one…

Age Of Conan Beta Proves Popular

Age of Conan's open beta should certainly provide a decent stress test of the servers. Eidos announced this morning that the game's had one million people sign up so far. Biggest ever? Funcom and Eidos (cautiously) think so. Funcom's VP of Sales and Marketing, Morten Larssen, says, "Funcom has not been able to find any higher beta numbers for MMOs in the western world. We…
