Since the last one of these we did was overwhelmingly popular, we’re back with another little hint of what’s going on in the General Beta at the moment.
The last few patches have continued integrating bug fixes and everything else we’ve been working on.
For example, one thing people have been asking us is, “Where all da Hyborian women at?”
Well, now they’re in General Beta. And while there are some bugs to work out—people always seem surprised to find out a beta is actually used for finding and squashing bugs!—they are playable, and it’s possible to make “someone you definitely wouldn’t want to date,” (as our esteemed Game Director put it) as well as someone you definitely would want to date.
We’ve included a few examples of the women of Hyboria, just so you can see how things are coming along.
It’s been a busy few weeks. Just to give you an idea, we’ve patched on the 24th, 29th, and 31st of January, as well as the 7th and 13th of February. Wednesday’s update alone clocked in at well over 2.5 gigs!
In another important area, we’ve often said that PVP is critical to the Age of Conan experience. Up to now, we’ve run technical tests for PVP stuff, testing the playfields, the character interaction, the playability and fun of the minigames, and just about everything else you can imagine. However, that is simply not enough!
PVP and the PVP servers are critical to us, which is why we’re excited to tell you that we are not far away opening the very first Age of Conan PVP dimension for the General Beta testers, all to make sure the PVP experience in Age of Conan is the experience you’ve been eagerly anticipating. However, if you don’t like PVP, do not despair! The regular General Beta servers will remain open and active and will get equal love and attention from the development team.
And, as we've said before, we will be adding more testers to both Technical and General Beta as we get closer to launch, so keep an eye on your inbox!
