AOC reactivation drive begins

Two weeks' play free for old timers.

Funcom is offering former Age of Conan subscribers two weeks free play with no strings attached if they reactivate between 8th and 22nd July.

The Norwegian MMO maker hopes you will see first-hand the improvements made to the game since launch, over a year ago.

These include the addition of areas Ymir's Pass and Tarantia Commons, and all the new quests, items, monsters and rewards they bring. Plus, of course, the overhauls to the PvP notoriety system, DX10 improvements and the drastic RPG-system revamp. Serious change is finally afoot.

Better still, Eurogamer is giving away 1000 free copies of Age of Conan this Friday, each bundled with 30 days free game-time.

Furthermore, Funcom promises to reveal a brand new Age of Conan expansion at GamesCom, the German super-event scheduled for August.

Up for it, Funcom is.
