Funcom recently announced the first part of its Buddy key program for Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures. Currently, the Buddy key program applies to Collector’s Edition owners only.
Buddy key will let you invite up to 5 friends to try the game out for a week, without having to buy the game. Of course, this means you’ll have to give your friends your DVDs before you invite them, so that they’re ready for gaming.
Another option is for your friend to pay $2.99/2.99€ for download and receive an additional three days of gaming.
Funcom announced that the Buddy program will soon apply to owners of standard versions, too.
