You know the only thing better than crushing your enemies, seeing them driven before you, and hearing the lamentations of their women? Crushing your enemies, seeing them driven before you, and hearing the lamentations of their women with a friend, which is exactly what you’ll be able to do in Conan Unconquered, the upcoming RTS title from Petroglyph. And to demonstrate just how you and a buddy can team up to build a base and fend off the endless hordes of savage invaders, the studio has released a new video that puts the spotlight on the game’s co-op mode.

Featuring a whole 20 minutes of gameplay footage, the video shows off virtually every facet of gameplay. Starting with a single, defenseless keep, the players (Community Manager Jens Erik Vaaler and Designer Renato Orellana) take players through the process of exploring the randomly generated map, gathering resources, and building up defenses in preparation for the inevitable onslaught of invading forces. And as an added bonus, there’s plenty of interesting commentary and insight into the various mechanics players will have to master if they want to survive in the barbaric world of Hyboria when the game hits Steam on May 30th. If that sounds up your alley, you can check out the video in its entirety just below.

Looks outdated and boring. Barely any different from Age of Empires HD. The first Funcom’s project I have zero interest in.

Gotta admit that video made me a bit more interested in the game. Thanks for the post, will keep my eye on it as it gets closer to release.

Agreed, but the giant gold man turns me off it. That and the visual/animation comparisons to age of empires. It doesn’t hold up well. It’s 2019 and we can do better than a bunch of mounted units circling a building trampling it to death.

I agree the graphical assets could be so much better, no doubt about that. In my case it went from a complete lack of interest to actually curious about the game — especially with the way co-op works. That seems like it could be fun.

However, no mater what, I won’t be pre-ordering. That ship has sailed for 99% of the games out there for me. Too many games come out broken, unfinished or no what we were shown beforehand. I’d rather pay 10-20% more later on a game then buy ten games and find eight of them not what I had hoped. :)
