Age of Conan: Unchained: Five Days of Bosses Incoming

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,580MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

To celebrate five years of Age of Conan, Funcom will be unleashing five days worth of epic boss monsters invading Hyboria. The event is scheduled to kick off on Thursday, May 23rd. In addition, membership benefits are being improved.

But the in-game event is just one part of the anniversary celebration. Membership in Age of Conan: Unchained is getting greatly improved. All characters on Member accounts will now receive the Blessing of Asura item, which doubles experience points from killing monsters for one hour per day. They also earn one Alternate Advancement point, which can be spent at level 80 to learn handy abilities, for each level they gain. In addition Members more than triple the amount of Bonus Points they receive each month, which can be spent in the Item Shop, and still of course retain all previous benefits Membership entailed.

Read more about the celebration on the Age of Conan Unchained site.

    You're having yourself a busy morning aren't ya video game news wise :) Loving the sounds of what Age of Conan is doing. I wish games used this more frequently where npcs attack towns. Aside from Rift with its zones being taken over the only game to have npcs raiding towns i played was EQOA. Black Orcs Raiding Freeport randomly was fun. Wish more games added these type's of event's instead of treating all towns like safe zones where nothing bad could ever happen in main towns(pve games)

    Great for members but F2P players still don't have AA advancement once hitting 80 making it still a long trial game until level 80. Kind of disappointed.

    wish they would just make everything for free and have a shop.by far still one of the best mmo's on the go..could have been so much more if not for the poor release.totally different now ofc.fantastic combat,gfx and I love the brutality of it.

    needs better model for free players, like tera, rift and other player-friendly f2p models to make it not just a free trial to 80. otherwise great game.

    So quit freeloading and subscribe. How do you expect the employees to get paid? It's not like they're doing volunteer work at the local food pantry or hospital.

    I agree. Why people think that are entitled to get everything for free? Since when should  videogames be free?! Do you have any idea of what cost to produce one? People have to eat, you know. Support the devs. Since the new team, AoC is getting some attention. And Funcom, with its mistakes, its a team with competent people that take risks and innovate, at least in the themes of their games.

    I've tried to come back to AoC these past years, it's just completely dead and empty so I was turned away. The main thing about AoC I loved was the real "M" rating in that game, actually aimed at adults in every aspect and not an unrealistic fantasy that many games portray.

    Dozens of MMO's, RTS's, FPS's, etc.

    I've heard that one of these bosses on the eu server is a Russian hacker that you have to try and wrestle a flag from before he can port across Old Tarantia

    The servers are anything but dead these days. There always groups looking to run raids, 6 mans, and pvp maps in chat. The pvp servers have a bit lighter population than pve.

    Wouldn't it have been better if AOC went buy to play instead? Pay once, play forever, no restrictions.
