Age of Conan rolls out brand-new forums, with Secret World Legends and Anarchy Online to follow

It’s been a big week for the supposedly-in-maintenance-mode Age of Conan: First it got a new time-limited progression server, then it lowered its sub fees and loyalty rewards for subbers, and now it’s gotten new forums.

“With the new start of the Saga Server we also want new beginnings of fresh and modern forums; it will seem pretty different from what you’re used to here, but these new forums offer a much better community experience. You’re able to keep better track of threads you are interested in and follow, personalize your profile, give feedback to comments, and have easy access to news and updates. It also includes a trust system; the more active or helpful you are in the community, the higher your trust level increases, allowing you access to more features.”

Worth noting is that old comments have not been ported over, but the old forum is still open until February 14th, at which point posts there will be archived (but still viewable).

Age of Conan appears to the be only Funcom game that’s gotten the new digs so far, but the studio has previously said it’ll create them for all three of its MMOs. “We will be rolling out support for each of our games over time to allow for some growing pains,” a blurb at the top of AoC’s forum says. “We appreciate your patience!”

Well, the new forums do look slicker than the old ones. Looking forward to seeing what the SWL forums look like. And…well…any SWL related news for new content now that I’m finally finished with the story in the game thus far.

wow, that’s big news, a more than 10 year old MMO has changed / upgraded its forum.

I wonder if we’ll get an update if they decide to change the font?

That’s a bold question to ask.

I would not have guessed Age of Conan would be the first to get the upgrade.

Maybe they chose to start with their smallest group of players, in case something went poorly.
