Funcom has announced a rather large-looking set of updates for Age of Conan: Unchained, the massively multiplayer game based on the writing of Robert E. Howard.
These Secrets of Dragon's Spine updates will allow level-80 characters to explore a new region known as The Dragon's Spine which adds three new dungeons, open-world areas, a player-versus-player zone, and new loot and armor sets. This won't be one update or patch, but rather a stream of content that will be released over the next few months.
Age of Conan has been around for four years now, and while it has never grown to massive numbers, it does have a decent following of players. I've kept with it because I am a huge fan of anything to do with Conan the Barbarian, and there is a server with hardcore PvP rules where I can kill people and take their stuff.
