Funcom has revealed that Rise of the Godslayer, the first expansion for its Age of Conan MMO, will be released on 11th May.
The news was broken by MMO Examiner. Although Funcom has yet to issue a press release formally announcing the date, a spokesman confirmed to Eurogamer that it was genuine.
The expansion will be available as a digital download direct from Funcom, or bundled with original game Age of Conan: Hyborian Adeventures in a boxed release published by Deep Silver.
Rise of the Godslayer eschews the traditional route of a raised level cap in favour of an alternate advancement system that will allow high-level players more customisation as they explore the new, Asian-themed lands of Khitai. There will be heavily faction-based questing to be had, and you'll be able to train wolves and tigers into mounts or fighting companions.
Plenty of info available at the Rise of the Godslayer gamepage.
