Given the mention on the PA home page today, I thought it might be time for an AoC thread. I'm afraid I'm a bit new to this - and I'm sure its been in development for years, so someone should feel free to contribute an overview of some kind.
I'm quite hopeful for a serious MMO to do well on the 360, and this seems to be the one I'm most interested in.
I was a complete Conan virgin until about 2 weeks ago, when I bought the complete Chronicles book off Amazon for a little look-see. I was pleasantly surprised. Gritty and not nearly as cheesy as I was fearing - and of course, seminal fantasy for genre fans.
So, I'm hoping for a lore-rich game that does the world justice.
Who else is looking forward to this?
As a discussion point, the idea of a combat system requiring some skill - I find intriguing. I wonder how far they will take this? Will it mean that a skilled low level player could take on someone whose character had more experience? I think there is probably a balance to be met here...
