Age of Conan: Unchained now free-to-play

Have a pec at it for nothing.

Oily barbarian MMO Age of Conan has turned free-to-play.

The game is now known as Age of Conan: Unchained.

Turning free-to-play means there are no barriers - besides waiting for the client to download - to prevent you giving Funcom's much improved virtual world a try.

Free-to-play members of Age of Conan get a choice of four character classes and two character slots. Bank space, adventure zones, dungeons, raids and mount training are limited. Sieges, alternative advancement, offline levels and veteran points are unavailable.

A premium subscription unlocks all the content. This costs €12.95 a month.

Age of Conan, like most MMOs, has changed considerably since its May 2008 launch - most notably with expansion Rise of the Godslayer last year. In 2011, Age of Conan will welcome a wealth of content relating to the new Conan the Barbarian Hollywood film.
