Ares Games is teaming up with FunCom to give backers of the Age of Conan Strategy Board Game a special in-game item for the Conan MMORPG.
From the update:
Fortunately, you do not really NEED to make the bargain King Richard was looking for. You may now have a Kingdom AND a horse!
We are incredibly excited that the great team at FunCom,- developer and publisher of the amazing Age of Conan Unchained MMO Role-playing game – took notice of our project. More than that, they actually play our Age of Conan Strategy Boardgame and they voluntereed to offer a unique gift to our backers!
In case you’ve been living in the depths of the Black Kingdoms until now, and you don’t know what we’re talking about… Age of Conan: Unchained is the award-winning and critically acclaimed massively multiplayer online game set in the savage and brutal world of Conan the Barbarian. Players tread in the footsteps of the greatest fantasy hero of all time, and explore the vast reaches of Hyboria. They can choose between twelve different classes, from Barbarian to Demonologist, and fight their way to riches and glory as they battle creatures straight out of hell or even engage in colossal guild vs. guild warfare!
As all MMORPGS, your character may acquire unique items in this virtual world, and the mount created by FunCom’s team – the Strategist’s Steed – will only be available to our Kickstarter backers.
No strings attached, so we decided to pass the gift onward to you as a bonus goal! You backers will receive, at the end of the campaign, a personal key they can use with their Age of Conan Unchained account. This key will reward the player with the Strategist’s Steed (requiring Advanced Riding Training to be used by the character).
And just in case you don’t know – Age of Conan Unchained is free-to-play – so don’t wait and try it now! (The mount will only become available to you at the end of the campaign, of course).
We look forward to the day when we’ll meet your character riding in the thick of battle on his Strategist’s Steed, to crush your enemies under its powerful hooves… and to hear the lamentation of the women!
