"1C Company is a clear leader in the Russian speaking regions, and we are confident we have found the perfect partner," said Trond Arne Aas, CEO of Funcom. "We have already shipped a substantial amount of English boxes into Russia, Ukraine and Belarus, but we know that the real key to success is achieved through localized servers and services. Together with 1C Company we will do our uttermost to make Age of Conan a success for many years to come." "We are happy working together with Funcom on bringing Age of Conan to Russia. The game has already gained success here, reaching top places in many retail charts. With an already established fan base in Russia I'm sure it will become even bigger after the localized version appears on the market," said Nikolay Baryshnikov, International Sales Director of 1C Company. "Age of Conan is a great mix of action, RPG elements and adventure. I believe that the game has potential to become a big hit in Russia."
