What is greatest in life? If you answered “To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women,” mate, relax. No, what’s greatest in life isn’t invading, conquering, or pillaging, it’s having a pleasant little sit-down with out anybody tromping throughout your garden. That’s the calmer tempo of life Conan the Sedentarian seeks in Conan Unconquered, the upcoming survival RTS from Petroglyph. Publishers Funcom blasted the primary in-game peek at this time and yup, it does look a good bit like They Are Billions, solely it’s barbarian hordes and novelty outsized wildlife banging on our partitions.
Like They Are Billions–a comparability Funcom themselves draw–Conan Unconquered isn’t about conquering floor however holding it, constructing partitions and armies and traps and barracks and temples and workshops and such to strengthen your place and maintain out towards waves of enemies. So certain, you’ll generally have to creep out and seize sources from past your partitions, however that’s not way more violent than combating via the hordes at B&Q on a Bank Holiday weekend. God is aware of I want I, like Conan, may name upon an enormous bronze boy to kick via the crowds.
That does look approach much less intense than They Are Billions, in fact, which may have 1000’s of zombies pounding in your partitions directly. But hey, it’s good to see extra of this potential subgenre explored. They Are Billions was an excellent’un once we final had an excellent take a look at its early entry state a year ago.
Conan Unconquered is because of launch later this 12 months, a while from April to June. For now, its Steam page is already up.
Petroglyph are the mob fashioned by former Westwood Studios people, who’ve since made real-time technique games together with Star Wars: Empire At War and Grey Goo. Funcom are nonetheless engaged on multiplayer survival sandbox Conan Exiles in addition to a mysterious Conan singleplayer game coming, to not point out several Dune games.
Given that Funcom have Petroglyph taking part in with the Conan license they maintain, I wouldn’t be too stunned if Petroglyph revisited their early Westwood days with one other Dune RTS. That’s wild hypothesis from me, thoughts.
