Another award in the cabinet for the excellent music composer Knut Avenstroup Hagen: The IFMCA have just announced it’s 2008 winners for scoring excellence, and Knut was given the award of “ Best Original Score for a Video Game or Interactive Media” for his music score for Age of Conan. Congratulations, Knut! =)
For those of you who’ve never heard about Knut nor actually listened to the music score in Age of Conan before, be sure to visit his homepage which features both music samples from the game as well as links to various interviews and articles concerning the amazing work he did on it.
In other news, we finally hit the Age of Conan Live-servers with the long awaited “patch 1.04” two days ago, after having worked on it since late October? last year. There have been several smaller updates since then, of course, but this newest patch is the largest we’ve done so far to the game, and it introduces a lot of new cool stuff, like three new dungeons, another raid-instance, PvP updates, and a ton of other stuff. Be sure to check out the full patch notes.
I’m glad we’ve finally been able to push all the great new content of this patch out the door, so we can all start focusing on the next patch!
