Anarchy Online: Interview with Craig Morrison

DanaDana Halifax, NSPosts: 2,415Member

Craig Morrison is the Community Manager for Funcom's Anarchy Online. The original sci-fi MMORPG, AO has been going for quite some time and it had been too long since we'd heard some word. Today, we get our update.

image AO made news by having one of the first in-game advertisements, are there any plans to have more ads in the game?

Craig Morrison: The advertising system is always evolving; we have already introduced video and interactive advertising to Anarchy Online since we began our partnership with massive Inc last year. The optional nature of the system for paying subscribers and the flow of free players into the game means that the advertising works towards maintaining the game in a way that just wouldn't be possible otherwise. We are always careful with the advertising implementations, and are always working to ensure that they appear as an integrated part of the game world and aren't intrusive to players.

The whole interview is here.

    Now this is a game they should make a sequel to. So many good lessons learned, tons of experience through the years and one of the most magical and fascinating universes out there, not to mention most original.

    Will probably never be, but it would be tons more exciting than the thousands of fantasy sequels.

    Long and happy life to AO! The experience Funcom got till now surely will be used in Conan, but as any other AO-lovers I also wish they continue to work on that great game.
