But Funcom is apparently planning to change graphics on the server side, depending on what game you've bought at the store. So for instance, if you've purchased a T-rated version of Age of Conan, you won't see as much blood as if you bought the M version. And putting it all server side, as Rog says, keeps players from messing with their settings and seeing the higher-rated gore.
Very interesting. I really wonder if it's worth the time and effort though-- Age of Conan doesn't seem like a game that would appeal to audiences that weren't allowed by their parents to play it. The IP is a little older than most videogames, and MMO audiences in general don't seem to have a problem playing adult games. Does Funcom really think that by varying the level, they'll pick up enough extra accounts to make all the graphics and coding worth it?
