Play Age of Conan, quite literally, for free

By Patrick Garratt, Monday, 21 December 2009 08:40 GMT


This may be an offer you can’t refuse. Funcom is allowing anyone that creates an Age of Conan account and logs-into the game before January 1 to play up to level 20, over an unlimited time period, for no charge whatsoever.

There are a few caveats: “Please note that a trial account has some limitations to avoid ‘spam’ and ‘gold farmers’,” said the firm.

“You cannot trade with others, use in-game mail, public chat channels and you can not post on the forums.”

All that gets cut away if you go full-blown, however. You get extra treats when you sub up, in addition.

“If and when you decide to upgrade your account you will receive an immediate boost to your progress through an exclusive and powerful beginner’s item that increases both XP gain and your chance of performing fatality moves,” the dev added.

Hit this.
