One of the big dissapointments in the launch last May for Age of Conan was the last minute announcement that the fantasy MMO would not have a DirectX10 version at launch. Today developer Funcom announced that members of the press will be able to see the DirectX10 graphics for the game next week in a behind-closed-doors session at the Games Convention in Leipzig, Germany.
.
The general public who attend the show will also get to see some upcoming new content for the game including " brand new and never-before-seen locations, content and features." Also a demo on how the game can be played via a gamepad with software from Blue Orb and a three-monitor setup from TripleHead2Go. Funcom will also give out their cool inflatable Age of Conan swords and free trial accounts for the game with limited edition DVDs of Age of Conan. This is apparently the first time that Funcom will give out free trial accounts for the title.

But Dip, your adult oriented ingame pixel movies look so much better in DirectX 10.

I'm working on hacking into his, so we can see his and Eo's videos.
