Believe it or not, the MMORPG Age of Conan has been around for 12 years now. Now free-to-play and rebranded as Unchained, Funcom has released one of the largest updates in years.
It’s called the ‘Onslaught’ update, and it is now available to download. It provides players with new quests, new loot, a new playfield, and a new game mode. There’s a selection of new and exquisite weapons and armor. Among the items are the powerful star metal weapons and the Thugra Khotan vanity armor.
According to Funcom:
Onslaught introduces a new game area based on Robert E. Howard’s Black Colossus (1933), one of the original short stories featuring Conan the Barbarian. Here, you will be faced with a new threat, as the ancient wizard Thugra Khotan has awoken after thousands of years and is seeking to fulfill his ambition of world domination. Waves of ferocious armies will charge at you on the steps of the great Ivory Dome of Kutchemes. The dome itself is said to contain unimaginable riches, but also a slumbering dread god.
Age of Conan was first released in May 2008. Since then the game has become free-to-play and was rebranded as Age of Conan: Unchained in 2011. Funcom has continued to support the game over the years with new areas, dungeons, and improvements to gameplay.
