Come Back to Hyboria!

A couple of weeks back I received an email from Funcom and here’s what it said:

This free re-evaluation offer is only valid until 2009-07-22. It does not require any purchase or re-subscription – this is your chance to try Age of Conan again at no cost.

Instructions on how to get back into the game can be found at the bottom of this e-mail.
