Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures is an online action role-playing game based on the Conan the Cimmerian stories written by Robert E. Howard in the early 1930s. The game is being developed for the PC and the Xbox 360 by Funcom, the creators of the science fiction MMORPG Anarchy Online and the adventure game The Longest Journey. While the game appears to be a semi-traditional (Only semi because some of the ways the game actually work, for example it does not have the traditional “click and hotkey” combat system or general exploration system) MMORPG, Funcom prefers using the term “online action RPG” instead.
