We have talked about arena fighting and what sort of technology would be required to allow for spectating without the ability to interfere.

The pit fights in Arnie's 'Conan the Barbarian' were a great part of the film. Will Age of Conan be able to have similar matches or gladiatorial events (pit fights or Collesium battles)?

It is something we would like to see as well, but as to it going in at initial release I cannot say.

As Gaute has mentioned before we would like to make three types of pvp

The vision is to have all Mini Games within a coliseum, imagine the film the gladiator and you get the picture.

We are also looking into adding a 4th arena PvP. It will be just like AO where there is free for all PvP but no where to zone and hide

There will also be a one on one PvP arena mode where you can test your skills in a duel with just you against your opponent.
