Some new screens and a video showing the wolf mount for Age of Conan’s Rise of the Godslayer expansion were released by Funcom this week.
Dunno if we would ever want to ride a wolf that harbored a maw like that one – but to each his own.
These scary looking things can be seen over on CVG, and apparently, you have to raise ‘em up from a cub.
“Raising the mount from a cub and teaching it how to hunt, track and fight is a long process, and by the time players have proven themselves worthy of riding it a bond has been created,” explained AoC’s lead designer, Joel Bylos.
“When you see players riding a tiger or a wolf you’ll know that it is not just a right to do so, it’s an earned privilege.”
If a wolf with a row of teeth to rival a shark isn’t your sort of thing, there’s always the horse or tiger.
The video of the mount in action is also through the link up there.
