Funcom launches Spanish community forums for Age of Conan

Durham, USA– February 1st, 2008– Funcom is excited to announce the launch of the Spanish community forums for Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures, just one week after launching the Spanish marketing site available on www.ageofconan.com. Funcom will be launching a Spanish localized version of the highly anticipated massive online game simultaneously with the North American, English, German and French on May 20th, 2008. Launching the community efforts is an important step in that direction.

“Online games are increasing in popularity, and there is no doubt that Spain is an important and a very exciting market to operate in,” says Funcom CEO Trond Arne Aas.“That is why we are looking so much forward to releasing the game in Spain simultaneously with the other localized versions, and as such it is tremendously important for us to cater to the growing Age of Conan community in Spain.”

The forums will allow Age of Conan fans from all Spanish speaking regions to gather in one place where they can exchange opinions and discuss both the game and the ever popular Conan lore. A Spanish community team is standing ready to take care of and communicate with the Spanish community.

Age of Conan is consistently mentioned as one of the most anticipated PC games in development. It has received more than twenty magazine covers and more than fifteen major awards, including numerous "Best MMO of E3" awards and the official "Best Online Game" award at the Games Convention 2007.

Age of Conan is a key title in Microsoft's Games for Windows line-up, and a showcase title for nVidia. It is one of the first massive online games ever to release in a Spanish localized version at the initial launch.

For more information on Age of Conan– either in English, German, French or Spanish– visit the official website at www.ageofconan.com where you also can access the respective community sites, currently available in English, German and French. A Spanish community site will be launched soon.
