Age of Conan Getting DirectX 10 Support in 'Next Major Game Update'

The long-promised DirectX 10 support for Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures will arrive in the "next major game update" for the PC MMO, developer Funcom has revealed.


"We have been determined that the new DirectX 10 functionality would not just be a 'gimmick' addition to the game and would add visual quality to the game," newly appointed game director Craig Morrison wrote in his November Letter.

"We feel that the version we are preparing now for testing does achieve this and in a way that will find the right balance between visuals and performance," he added.

While Morrison did not specify when the "major" update will arrive, he revealed that the next update will pack two new dungeons "aimed at maximum level players" in an attempt to begin filling "content gaps [at] the highest level."
