We've caught wind of a rumor regarding certain retail chains that give out unique Age of Conan
pre-order keys. It seems that if you've pre-ordered at any chain that does give you a unique key, then a three-day early start is in your Hyborian
future. The rumor started in this thread
on the official forums, which was then supported by a secondary
post with a copy-paste of an email that seemingly confirms the rumor. What is most interesting
is that an official post has since been made concerning said rumor, which doesn't actually deny the three-day head start.
So it certainly seems this rumor has some legs. This definitely wouldn't be the first time pre-order customers got an early start, as it's quite common
for massively games to do something of this nature. Call us fairly convinced on this one, but of course until there's an official announcement it'll have to go into the rumor bin.
