It's a new trend that is unlikely to go away anytime soon (well, as long as people keep paying for it, I guess.) Funcom has announced that Age of Conan will be making some changes to their membership plan and will also be adding an item to their cash shop that allows players to jump directly to the current max level of 80.
The "Level 80 Character Creation" option will boost you directly to max level and deck your new character out in rare equipment so you're ready to start taking on the challenges of max level. It will set you back $40. However, and I kind of like this option, if you already have a level 80 character, boosting new characters will only cost $30 a pop. I like the added touch of a discount for people that have played the content and maybe just want an alt as well.
Those of you that subscribe (Member Status) or have been thinking about subscribing should take a look at the current offers being added to the Member program. Starting today and running until January 2nd, Funcom is adding additional perks if you become a subscriber or add subscription time to your current subscription.
From Funcom's announcement:
Pretty sweet deal if you're already spending money in Age of Conan or were planning to do so. What do you think?
- Conan Exiles Age of War Chapter 2 Is Now Live, Improving Loot And Revamping The Purge Systems
- Is It An MMO? #15 — Dune: Awakening Puts The Sand In Sandbox, But Will It Shake Up The MMO Genre?
- Red Rover Interactive, A New Studio From Former Funcom, Lockwood, And Bohemia Devs, Snags Almost $5 Million In Funding
