the trailer is great but the voice ruins it

Comparing AoC to WoW is dumb. Funcom is doing a great job, I'm glad to see they are really stepping it up. Rise of the Godslayer actually has a lot to do with Conan because it is part of Conan lore. Funcom is not running out of ideas. In fact there is much more of Howard's work that they could bring to life.

@ Bladestop Is it not more fun to just get an actual "TRAILER" and explore then new stuff for your self? or do you rather have everything already told to you and you will know everything that will come, before you buy the game?. Well, people are different.

Before I start this new comment I wanna say I do not play WoW or AoC. In fact I don't play any MMO I just love to see how they all evolve. But this is directed to ION_87, did you actually read the new features because I just did and reading all the "new" features are recycled from WoW. You said there aren't any factions read the new features section and you'll see that it's there in black and white that you'll be questing for new factions and that people from other factions will be at war with you....... I ask you where did that idea come from hmmm.... All MMO's are basically the same damn game with different graphics. So I leave with this last statement gore and nudity do not make a good game. I'm not saying this is a bad game at all from what I've seen it actually looks pretty fun.

I played AOC when it first released and enjoyed it despite the bugs and frustration that comes with that. I am glad to hear how well AOC is doing. Everyone that is currently playing the game has nothing but good things to say about how far it has come. I agree with you ION 87 about enjoying the landscape. AOC landscape is an awesome experience and a real adventure to explore. After seeing this trailer I want to reinstal the game and start playing again. I had to quit a while back do to time consmption conflicts and school.

I have been playing AoC more than half a year, and I really love, that they are really working hard to remove major bugs, balance player classes and add new content and options for the players. And despite the fact, that I haven't played WoW, I would rather choose AoC, because it has both the dark and the fantasy atmosphere, that gets you into it. There are no stupid fractions like elves, dwarfs or other crap, which is in a fantasy rpg, like WoW. And the best, what I like in AoC is the Gore, really good stuff. And for the add, AoC has a lot better visuals, than WoW, that's why I choose it, to not spoil my eyes, ouch! Talking about this trailer, was really impressed of the new content, because I really love to see the visuals of the landscape, because I am not a spoiled raiding and power-leveling player, and I enjoy the view while playing, so for me, the trailer shows just what I want to see, so it's alright! And afterwords I would address to you lazy mates about the features of the game, which can be read HERE: http://www.riseofthegodslayer.com/ Asking why they didn't put them in the trailer? Well maybe they didn't want to spoil the atmosphere of the trailer by one guy babbling about new stuff, what will be found in that expansion!

guess wow expansion seems better in a way but i know fncom will have way more thought and detail put in and that always wins me over. wow just adds over the top sized areas. remember this is there first expansion so new areas are good where as wow already has two kinda shows theyre geting desperate and the game is finally coming to an end. wish they buil a new engine fo the game improve graphics perfect time as well.

Comparing trailers only.... I repeat comparing traliers only, WoW cataclysm looks to be a much better expansion. By watching this trailer I know nothing of what new content will be in this expansion.... its an Asian themed expansion but other then that who knows. There is no real information about the gameplay in this trailer. I am aware that there wasn't much on the WoW trailer either, but when compared to this I must say I know so much more about Cataclysm. Please enlighten me on WTF this is going to turn out to be. All you fanboys of AoC are gonna hate me and all the Fanboys of WoW are gonna love me. But lets get real watch both trailers and tell me you don't know more about Cataclysm.

looks like Funcom is creeping the IP a little closer towards high fantasy :( if I can give props to AoC for doing anything right, it's taking the game universe and making it feel dark, bleak and dangerous like the literature old boy Howard dropped on us in his Conan stories.

Give it a break! Stop saying Age of Conan fails. It's actually quite impressive, they just got to rewrite some of the game mechanics, and patch it every week and you won't have a Wowkiller (at least give it 5 years like WoW.) But really guys.. You're saying this game was released as a beta. Okay, great, I mean, when WoW alpha came out during the beta testing, I would still say that it wasen't exactly "good", and Age of Conan at least did a better job than WoW with their combat system and so forth. Of course, AoC is 3-4 years beyond WoW and technology has been improved a lot - But still, you can't blame on that either, because several of companies did what WoW did in Everquest. When Age of Conan has been patching for 3-4 years, then we'll see, as WoW weren't any better during its release.

Rofl. I love listening to a bunch of wow tards talk about how this is gonna fail. I played WOW from day one and despite all of the game play implementations they've managed to figure out over five years the game pussied out after BC. AOC isn't perfect but if you're retarded enough to think that all the work they've been doing hasn't gotten it anywhwere then you really need to stop playing games or at least judging games you probably haven't played since release. This game is no worse than wow was a year into it. In fact I'd say its better considering how small the team of developers is compared to what Blizzard can mobilize. Yes funcom could severely benefit from some of wow's game mechanics but overall its a lot more entertaining than Blizzard's one and only let down of a game. Alas this is what happens when you get greedy and decide to make your mmo the most casual game of all time.

I lmao every time I see the 8.5 rating gamespot gave to AoC. Gamespot wasn't the only site to reach the conclusion: Pretty graphics on smoking systems + nipples = WoWKiller. But, Lordy this remains an over-rated train wreck. Even with the corrections and bug fixes, problems remain. AoC was a broken Beta when it was released. Result: Despite many positive reviews by rushed writers looking to find a WoWKiller, subscribers stampeded to exit. AoC is a classic example of why Blizzard has been so successful: Don't release a game till it's ready. That doesn't mean bugfree, but bugs should be fixed in days or a week instead of lingering for months and months. Buying AoC at release was PAYING to be a beta tester. As to the trailer, it looks pretty...but says nothing other than: Pretty Asian-type expansion. Compare it to the first trailer for WoW Wrath of the Lich King, voiceover by Arthas, a trailer which shows young idealistic heroes setting forth, 1 gets killed, and the other ends surrounded by the Scourge. Arthas is telling the viewer, "You think you're tough? I'm going to take it all away from you and kill or corrupt you." This trailer has some guy babbling about his kingdom. Other than that he's ticked with Conan, I've no idea what else this trailer might be telling us. Not a good sign that the developers remain this clueless, this unable to convey info about their new product.

AoC depresses me. I had so much hope for this game and then it turned out being a buggy mess. The item system made no sense whatsoever. This trailer doesn't even look that interesting to me. AoC is a dead game.

OH MAN! I always wanted to make a mongolian warrior! But idk, AoC feels really small and unfinished without the expansion pack. I always do this, but, when compared to WoW; its like comparing a ditch with a ravine. (With WoW being the ravine) WoW is super huge when it comes to actual virtual game space and exploration where as AoC is tiny as hell. There are like 3 main cities and 3 or 4 zones per ethnicity and wow has like >9000 zones. Even though i normally despise wow, Funcom needs to step it up a notch and forget about working on the damn expansion and add new zones every 2-3 months!
