Conan Unconquered launching early

It’s a surprise attack! PC real-time strategy title Conan Unconquered will be landing early, by one day. Check out the latest trailer after the break.

Conquering early

“We’re eagerly looking forward to launch and to getting Conan Unconquered into the hands of players. The game has really come together and although the skill cap is high, it’s tremendously fun to play,” says Lawrence Poe, Chief Product Officer at Conan Unconquered publisher Funcom.

Conan Unconquered press release

As you can see, Conan Unconquered is no ordinary real-time strategy game. The title gets rid of several conventions of the genre, and places players in a city to start.

Their job is to defend said city, by any means. You’ll have armies to command, buildings to construct, and heroes to field. All of that will be done in the name of defense though, as you repel the invading hordes to save the city that you’re in command of.

And while you might not think immediately think multiplayer lends itself to that play style, you might think again. Unconquered does indeed feature multiplay, with both players cooperating to hold the walls of the city up. That means double the heroes, and an increase of deadly foes.

For strategy fans, that could make Conan Unconquered one to watch out for. Announced today, they can expect that launch one day earlier than announced too.

Unconquered will arrive on the PC next Wednesday, May 29th.
