Come back to Conan, get Beta access to The Secret World

Funcom has announced plans to get lure players back to Age of Conan with not only multi-month subscription rates and the new expansion, but Beta access to The Secret World when it goes live.

Here’s the deal:

  • 3-month sub: Beta access to The Secret World
  • 6-month sub: Beta access + in-game helmet that boosts experience gain by 10 percent
  • 12-month sub: Beta access + helmet + a free copy of Conan expansion Rise of the Godslayer

“We know that coming back to a massively multiplayer online game demands effort, so for us it’s all about making it worthwhile for former players to come back,” Erling Ellingsen told Eurogamer. “With all the improvements having been introduced to the game, we’re eager to have as many former players as possible be exposed to all the updates.

“So for returning players we’re offering two weeks free game time, and the ability to level up twice as fast as normal. It is natural for any subscription business to incentivize longer-term subscriptions in order to ensure a long-term relationship with the player.”

The new expansion, Rise of the Godslayer, will include a new Asian-themed area of Khitai along with its playable race, the Khitan and the chance to raise tigers and wolves from cubs into mounts when it goes live in 2010.

    Holy shit dude, you would think that you of all people would have access to a PC connected to the internet and that you would know how to look up the correct spellings for “Freemasons”, “Knights Templar”, “Illuminati”, “The Vatican”, and “The Bilderberg Group”.
    Personally, I blame PC games for illiteracy amongst youngsters these days.

    I especially lol’ed at the term “stone massion”, if it wasn’t followed by all those other conspiracy nutcase terms nobody would have been able to guess what BDH was trying to say :)

    Don’t most modern browsers have spell checkers now too?

    Actually his consistently shitty spelling is partly why I think he’s a troll. Nobody spells “piracy” “pircay” every single time without meaning it.

    “I can show you things that will make you freak out”

    Dude, with that spelling, you already have. My fourteen year old (swedish, mind you) sister spells better than you.

    As for Age of Conan, I still haven’t tried it out – despite promising myself time and time again to do so. Sounds like a nice expansion though. Too little Asia in games.

    I’m tempted. I really want to see the Secret World and already own AOC, but damn! The game was shit!

    Dont think i want to pretty much pay for a beta.
