Age of Conan ships over 1 million copies

age of conanFuncom’s Age of Conan was only just released three weeks ago and it has already shipped over 1 million copies.

"As a result of the tremendous interest from gamers, Age of Conan has for the past few weeks been claiming number one spots on sales charts across the Western world – including the US, Germany, France and the UK"

"Sales data shows that Age of Conan is the biggest MMO launch since World of Warcraft," said Funcom Vice President of Sales and Marketing Morten Larssen. "The numbers are very promising, and we are very proud to be one of the fastest selling PC games ever in a launch month and the biggest simultaneous Europe/US MMO launch in history."

According to Yahoo! Finance, "In the US, Age of Conan has a strong #1 chart position and is now moving past the 500,000 shipped mark. Meanwhile the attention for the game is growing across the globe, with over 8 million unique visitors from over 200 countries to the Age of Conan websites so far in 2008. The community surrounding the game is also growing fast, with over 800,000 signing up as members of the Clan of Conan fan club."

The game launched throughout the US on May 20 (May 23 in Europe) and is doing pretty well. While AoC does suffer from numerous bugs, which the developers are working to fix, both gamers and critics have acknowledged Age of Conan as thoroughly enjoyable online experience.
