Age of Conan Getting Face Import Tech 'Soon'

Update: Funcom has denied plans to bring face import tech into the game itself.

Players of Funcom's Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures will soon be able to bring their own faces and voices into the mature PC MMO thanks to a three-way collaboration between Big Stage Entertainment, GGL Global Gaming, and developer Funcom.

Using three user-provided digital images, Big Stage's web-based technology creates a 3D "@ctor," which can then be customized with accessories, such as an eye patch. GGL is handling promotion, with prizes for those that "share" their "@ctor" most.

Currently, the implementation is limited to videos and images on the web, but Big Stage vows that the "@ctors" users create today will be supported "in-game soon."

    This is excellent news for the Conan player community, now the seven of them can meet face to face without leaving home.

        Seriously, how does anyone believe this tech will be anything but a wave of rogues named Penisor Ballnuts and Goatse-Headed topless chicks?
