Rise of the Godslayer is the first expansion for the acclaimed massively multiplayer online role-playing game Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures. Rise of the Godslayer is set within the empire of Khitai, in the oriental east, greatly expanding the Conan game world, as well as introducing plenty of new gameplay mechanics.

Since Rise of the Godslayer takes place in the far east, new gameplay improvements and additions have been introduced, including new martial arts moves and weaponry, fantastic Asian-inspired locales, new mounts, and an all-new character race, the Khitan. Rise of the Godslayer also offers new content to high-level players, as one would come to expect from such an expansion, such as new monsters, loot, and of course, dungeons and dangerous regions.

Curiously, Rise of the Godslayer does not raise the level cap, or introduce new character classes. Hopefully the newly introduced content, (the new alternate advancement abilities, attacks, combos and the like), as well as the new zones and dungeons are rich enough to compensate for this.

Rise of the Godslayer is scheduled to launch May 11th, and will be available for purchase through both retailers and digital download. The retail version comes with both the expansion and an updated version of the original game, Hyborian Adventures, as well as a new social pet and a package of virtual items, making jumping into Age of Conan easy and inviting for players who have not already enjoyed it.
