On Monday, December 7th at 12pm PST/3pm EST, developers will present and play Rise of the Godslayer. The live feed will be streamed onto Xfire and will include new, never-before-seen content along with live gameplay. The developers will also be talking about the expansion in general while they play through it. The live stream will be free for everyone to access.
“We have been working on the expansion for Age of Conan for quite some time now, and everyone on the team is eager to lift the veil and include the public in what we are trying to bring to life,” said Game Director and executive Producer Craig Morrison, who will be hosting the live gameplay demonstration together with expansion Lead Designer Joel Bylos, in a Funcom press release from December 3. “Development is coming together nicely, and we are really excited to see the Empire of Khitai coming to life! doing a live demon on Xfire is a brilliant way for us to reach out to a broad audience and show just what they can expect from Rise of the Godslayer as we continue to move closer and closer to launch.”
Rise of the Godslayer introduces the Empire of Khitai to the player. New factions, mounts, quests, and rewards are included in the expansion, along with new gameplay and alternate advancements. The expansion is set to be released in the first half of 2010.
Currently, Age of Conan is only available for Windows-based PCs (or Macs running Windows through Boot Camp).
