“No man should live in chains,” proclaims Conan the Barbarian in the new, upcoming Hollywood production set to release later this year. With the words of the most legendary fantasy hero of all time in mind, Funcom today released an all-new, free-to-play version of its critically acclaimed massively multiplayer online game titled "Age of Conan: Unchained". The new version replaces the existing version of the game, and players everywhere will now be able to freely explore the sexy, savage, and brutal world of Hyboria with their friends – and enemies.

“After 1.4 million copies sold, having experienced fantastic critical acclaim, and still to this day going strong with a large active player base embarking on thousands of daily adventures, there is no doubt that ‘Age of Conan’ has made a significant impact on the online gaming genre,” says Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing Morten Larssen. “The great potential provided by the hybrid business model, and with the ever growing interest for free-to-play games, bringing ‘Age of Conan’ into this market is undoubtedly the logical next step for the title.”

Players now get to choose whether they want to experience the free offering, or become a Premium member with access to even more game content. An in-game store also allows both free players and Premium members to purchase in-game goods such as weaponry and mounts. For more detail about the differences between the free and Premium offering, visit the new ‘Age of Conan: Unchained’ website at http://www.ageofconan.com/playfree.

Played for a day but then stopped as mentioned already the F2P part of it sucks as to much is locked out including a warrior class since when does a MMORPG not have a warrior class from the start, not worth a download imo unless your willing to spend real money in the store or buy a sub.

This game is AWESOME! I can't stop playing now, but sadly most of the options in character creation are for premium users... Get it more f2p than now... Do like Blizzards' doing and cancel the level cap.

No it dosn't worth the w8 for DL , good classes are bloked you need to pay for premium , ok this sucks the classes that are f2p are unballanced and are very weak .... the good classes like assassin and mage type classes are bloked .,..

Is it really 25gb? The patcher says its downloading 7.51gb so how can it be 25? I don't need to worry because I have more then plenty of space but still that is massive, plus with my current low speed internet this download will take me to around 12pm. Pleas don't tell me I'm gonna have lag because I play a wide variety of online games and I have minimal lag in every game.
