As an avid fan of Conan and anything to do with Conan I was genuinely excited when Conan Exiles was announced. I played the game for hours upon hours and lost track of all time and reality while playing the game. You can check out my review of the game here. While it has had some issues recently the game is still incredible. Now recently announced by Funcom we have another Conan game on the horizon called Conan Unconquered.
This time around you will be tasked with building your own base to defend against wave after wave of enemies. The game was created by Petroglyph the team behind the strategy games Dune 2 and Command and Conquer.
Here is what CEO Rui Casais had to say, “It is both a professional and personal honor to be working with the genre veterans at Petroglyph. My first love is strategy games and I spent endless hours playing Dune 2 back in the day. The current team at Petroglyph is responsible for some truly great strategy games, including Star Wars: Empire at War, and I can think of no one better to bring to life the first ever strategy game set in the world of Conan the Barbarian.”
Conan Unconquered will feature single player or two player online modes so you can defend against waves with a friend if you so choose. The game right now is set to release in Q2 2019 so you have some time to drool over this one.
Check out what Petroglyph CEO Chuck Kroegel had to say about working with Funcom, “Both companies have worked very close, developing new technology and ideas that truly made this a team effort in every sense. The iconic creatures, villains, and heroes of the Conan universe have contributed greatly to what our early beta testers indicate is a really fun and exciting game that continues to get better every day. Partnering with Funcom has truly made this Conan game experience unconquerable!”Black Colossus
