Age of Conan - Hyborian Adventures is a Massive Multiplayer Online Game being developed by Funcom and based on the Conan fantasy license originally created by author Robert E. Howard. Set in 10,000 BC in the world of Hyboria, the game will provide players a unique opportunity to live their virtual lives in a detailed world holding thousands of other players.
It is scheduled for release on the 20th of May 2008.
The game is set in Hyboria after Conan has secured his rule on the Aquilonian throne. He appears to have established good ties to the tribes of his homeland, Cimmeria. Unfortunately, many other countries have arrayed themselves against Conan and his people. In Nemedia, armies prepare for invasion of their longtime rival. To the west, the Picts grow bolder, crossing the border in search of blood. In the north, the Vanir raid and pillage the villages of Cimmeria. And in the south, Stygia grows in power and ambition daily.
Perhaps worse than all of these is the rise of darker forces. Thoth-Amon, Stygian Speaker of Set and the Sorceror of the Black Ring, has been growing in power. The lost nation of Acheron has regained some of its old power rising again in Hyboria. Conan and his peoples need help more than ever.
