Age of Conan Gets Largest-ever Update

The fifth Age of Conan update, dubbed the "Gangs of Tarantia," has now gone live, bringing the most significant changes yet seen to the Funcom-developed MMO.

In addition to the new region of Tarantia, which the developer says will add "several hours" worth of content, the game has also seen fundamental changes to its item and questing systems. nope "Items now have statistics that are easier to understand and that are more similar to what you find in similar MMO games," wrote Funcom on "With items being more important, questing and raiding will turn out to be a lot more rewarding than before."

Other changes include the addition of PvP minigame experience, population growth in player cities, social pets, and a reworking of the gem system.
