Age of Conan, expansion go free-to-play for 10 days

Age of Conan players active or otherwise are invited to try out Rise of the Godslayer, the game’s recently released first expansion, free of charge, Funcom’s announced.

The MMO add-on (trailer above) has performed well at retail and online following its May release, according to VP of sales and marketing Morten Larssen, “in terms of both sales and traffic.”

Looking to add to the ‘significantly increased server activity’ Funcom’s opened up the expansion as well as the core game, which are free-to-play until next Thursday, July 15, to players current and past.

It’s an approach the company’s had success with in the past; last summer’s promotion caused servers to ‘boom with activity’ and saw entire guilds returning to the now two-year-old game.
