    Will be announced at December 8th, 10AM PST, from whatever Twitch channel called KindaFunnyGames: https://conancountdown.com/


    While the teaser site has no other information, it's been confirmed that Funcom Oslo is working on a singleplayer Conan game. What kind of game? That's to be seen, I guess.

    edit: Oh yeaah...

    Oh right :deathclaw:


    This must be the Conan RTS from Petroglyph (which is to launch in 2Q 2019), since Funcom Oslo's Conan game is still in pre-production.

    Sorry if this excited some of you even a little bit.

    Not sure what depresses me more a new Conan game or a new Conan film announcement.
    :negative:
    One day something good will come.

    um, the Conan stories are actually VERY problematic. so i hope that this new game will have adequate representation of women, people of color, and queers as should be expected of a game in 2019. If there is no female player character available then I will not buy this game.

    I gave up on Conan, modern developers are too cuckish to give a good spin on the Conan saga.

    Conan RTS?

    Would be cool if done right, with lots of dude going around and pillaging great cities like hordes of barbarians.

    Maybe hero-focused? I like the idea of leading my hordes of Barbarians on a spree of rape and plunder

    In the stories there were quite a few cases where Conan put his General cap on, and lead great armies into battle. And 'civilized' armies, too.
    Hardly ever was he in command of simple screaming savages.

    That said, I don't fucking care about it at all, a Conan RTS is beyond fucking stupid, nobody who likes Conan wants this, NOBODY

    That might be optimism speaking. They do want to also sell this to consoles, I imagine.

    The only way a Conan strategy game would work is if it gets the Total War treatment with terrain, unit formations, etc being taken into account (and hopefully with functioning AI).

    Scarlet Citadel was the shit :obviously:

    It was the first Conan story I read, I immidiately ordered the big-book-o-Conan and was not disappointed.
    Such a cool story, it had everything. Dungeon crawls, mindbreaking terrors, gigantic battles, and my favorite scene:

    I offer you life, Conan.
    I give you death, Wizard.

    What I remember last time I checked is that the stories are public domain, but the license for producing video games is in the hands of Paradox.

    It's weird. Conan the character is copyrighted, but the books are public domain.

    I fucking wish, just remove crafting and that's more or less what I want for a game set in Hyperborea

    RTS would be retarded though. That's not what I want from this setting at all.
