Version Of Age Of Conan Coming In Second Half Of 2008

The highly anticipated MMO
scheduled for fully localized Polish release as CD Projekt enters Service
Partnership Agreement with Funcom

Funcom and CD Projekt are delighted
to announce the signing of a Service Partnership Agreement for a Polish version
of Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures. According to the agreement CD Projekt will
fully localize voice and text and operate local customer service, communities,
websites and in-game support for Age of Conan in Poland, while Funcom will take
care of back-end technology, server infrastructure and continuous development of
the game.

“It is with great pleasure and
satisfaction that we are announcing this partnership, one that proves to be yet
another milestone for our company – releasing the first subscription MMORPG
fully localized into Polish.” said Michał Kiciński, joint CEO of CD Projekt. “We
are committed to providing a new level of game experience through the use of
local game masters, community managers and customer support. For years we have
waited for the right MMO game to come along and now it is here, in our hands."

“CD Projekt has an impressive track
record both as a developer and distributor, and they have done excellent
localization and distribution work on other Funcom titles such as The Longest
Journey. Escalating our collaboration to a whole new level is something we truly
look forward to,“ said Trond Arne Aas, CEO of Funcom. “We believe a key aspect
in making Age of Conan successful around Europe is to work closely with great
local partners such as CD Projekt. In many countries it is essential to release
in the local language to truly succeed, and Poland is definitively such a
territory. CD Projekt is through its agreement with Eidos the chosen partner for
retail distribution, sales and marketing in Poland so it’s a perfect match.
Together we aim to make Age of Conan a great local success.”

Age of Conan is consistently
mentioned as one of the most anticipated PC games in development. At launch the
game will have received more than thirty covers on high-profile gaming magazines
across the globe and more than fifteen major awards, including numerous "Best
MMO of E3" awards and the official "Best Online Game" award at the Games
Convention 2007. Age of Conan is a key title in Microsoft’s Games for Windows
line-up, and a showcase title for nVidia. Age of Conan launches 20th of May in
North America / Oceania and 23rd of May in Europe. The release date in Poland is
still to be set.
