In 2008, Funcom
used Eidos as its distributor for the retail version of Age of Conan
. Now with the upcoming release of their expansion pack, Rise of the Godslayer
, Funcom will release a new retail version of their fantasy MMO that combines both the original game and the expansion pack.
The new retail release will be distributed this time by CompuExpert
in North America and will include some exclusive in-game items that will assist new players in their adventures. CompuExpert had previously distributed the WWII flight sim Wings of Prey
to stores in the US. While Rise of the Godslayer
is expected to be released sometime this year there's no specific date that has been announced.
