Today marks the beginning of the celebrations for Age of Conan‘s 5th anniversary and Funcom are pulling out all the stops. There’s a host of exciting additions coming over the next week including additional membership benefits, brutal boss battles and anniversary gifts.

The new boss battles, that are underway at the moment, will see epic bosses roam the lands. Each boss will interact with the game world in a different way with some attacking settlements and villages while others will roam freely. Every single player regardless of level and experience can participate in the battle against these legendary monsters and all participants will share the rewards if the creature is defeated. The developers have given players a single hint for the location of the first boss, Tarantia.

Accompanying the exciting boss battles is new anniversary rewards. All players will be given an Access Pass to the land of Khitai, the new area introduced in the Rise of the Godslayer expansion. This pass will last for a full week giving all current players the opportunity to explore the area before purchasing the expansion.

And finally a new membership benefit program will be in effect giving anyone that purchases the 3, 6 or 12 months packages an additional 50% of subscription time.
