Included in the report was the announcement that the game is progressing as planned, with the combat, core mechanics and content being worked on at the moment.

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.

This was a rather large week in MMOs as far as news went, and not all of it was Halloween related.
Past the break you will hear all about how Ultima Online is still going strong, get familiarized with the new patch for Aion, read up on Cryptic’s Blood Moon event via a dev chat, PvP henchmen and Guild Wars, Alganon’s delay, China’s ban on males playing females in games, and many other bits of stuff that didn’t hit the front page during the week.
Also, we hope everyone who plays MMOs enjoyed the Halloween and Fall festivities that their particular favorites hosted. Loads had celebrations, more than likely every single one of ‘em. If we forgot to mention your particular game, head on over to the list through the link ther and add it in the comments section so that we may give it its proper shout-out.

Loads of MMOs are planning Halloween and fall festivities for users, but some have already launched tricky goodness.
You can find out more about those past the break, but while you are headed that way you will also learn other sorts of stuff like: Legends of Norrath’s eighth expansion has launched, CrimeCraft is headed to iPhone and Facebook, and having gone free-to-play D&D Online is doing great, apparently.
Also, Star War Galaxies is overrun with zombies. That’s right. Zombies.
It’s all there kids. Enjoy.

Age of Conan dev Funcom is to drop 20 percent of its workforce, according to E24, resulting in a “significant delay” to upcoming MMO The Secret World.
The game had never been officially dated, but was expected in 2010.
The company employs around 300 staff, so 60 jobs look set to go.
Funcom’s currently in the process of relocating to Quebec and it’s debatable legal games-related tax breaks. It lost $34 million last year.

Looks like a new level 80 dungeon, the Iron Tower, and a veteran rewards program is heading to Age of Conan.
This bit of good news was revealed in the latest director’s letter on the official site.
The veteran rewards program uses “veteran points” – instead of a reward per-month interval system – with monthly points that can either be saved or spent via a new veteran reward shop. One of these rewards is an item that summons Casilda, the slave from the tutorial whose boobs shake, to “cheer you on as you fight things”.
As far as the new dungeon is concerned, the Iron Tower is a team effort that is loaded to the gills with Aquilonia criminals, five different bosses, four mini-bosses, and possibly a rare boss.
Good to know that more stuff is headed Hyboria’s way.
