Age of Conan Surpasses 400K Players, Reportedly 'One of the Fastest Selling PC Games' Ever

Developer Funcom has announced that its subscription-based PC MMO Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures has accumulated more than 400,000 players since it launched on May 20, with "almost half" of those players located in North America.

According to the company, these figures make the gore and nudity-filled title "one of the fastest selling PC games of all time." At present, the only way to enter the world of Hyboria is to purchase the retail box. Each copy of the game comes with a 7-day guest pass, though the codes are not yet available.

"The initial sales and reviews are very encouraging, and it's great to see that so many are enjoying Age of Conan," Funcom CEO Trond Arne Aas said with a grin. "This is just the beginning, and we already look forward to massive updates and cool new features."
