Funcom announced a new trial program for its not so successful MMORPG Age of Conan. The game suffered from a bad launch with very few content available after a magnificent first 20 levels. Funcom fixed that with many content and balancing patches so far and now tries to win new players. Will the company succeeds in that I do not know. What I know, is, that quality free gaming is always welcomed? It is important to note that you can level as many characters as you want to level 20 and try them without any time limit as long as you get the trial before the 1st of January.
The original announcement:
Our original seven day trial has been very successful so far," says Morten Larssen, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Funcom. "But with the holiday season coming up this is the perfect time to shake up our trial offer a bit and try out something new. So everyone who downloads the trial before January 1st will be able to play the first part of the game for free, forever.We are confident that many of those taking advantage of this offer will choose to become permanent players, allowing them to experience all of what the game has to offer including all the additions and improvements introduced since launch.
