Next Age of Conan update to add DirectX 10 graphics

Posted on Thursday, November 20 2008 @ 04:37:18 CET by

Firingsquad reports the next update for Age of Conan will add DirectX 10 support, but it's not known when this update will be released. Besides better graphics, the update will also add two new dungeon locations for experienced maximum level players.
That's about to change though, according to Craig Morrison, Game Director for Age of Conan, the next update will finally bring DX10 graphics to the game:

We are now preparing to take the DirectX 10 version of the game from our internal testing servers out to the public test servers, so you can see it for yourselves. The next major game update will include this version of the game and make it available for everyone with the appropriate hardware to enjoy. Since the outset 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, 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. We have also gone to great lengths to try and make virtually all the DirectX10 features customizable so that you can find the right balance between features for the performance level of your hardware. What we did not want to do was push this version out too early and not see the real added benefits this technology can bring. I am really looking forward to players getting to experience some of the new visual improvements that this new technology allows. It really brings an even further splendor to the game world.

Keep your eyes out for the announcement of when the update will hit the public test servers so that you can try it out for yourselves!
