Funcom and Eidos have announced anyone pre-ordering Age of Conan in the USA, Germany, France, Spain, UK, Oceania and the land of the Nords will get to play the game early.
From May 17th, to be precise - three days before the game launches. Which means a head-start before all the less organised players enter Hyboria.
"As we prepare the roll-out, we know our servers will be put to the test," said Funcom's Morten Larssen. "We therefore hope potential players will aid us by signalling their interest as soon as possible so we can scale our servers and services accordingly."
As aforementioned Age of Conan is coming to PC on May 20th, with an Xbox 360 version to follow in a whole year's time. You'll find all manner of previews about it and videos of it over on the gamepage.
