Funcom have confirmed the release date for Conan Chop Chop.
Developed by Mighty Kingdom, the game was originally announced on April 1st, 2019. Due to the rather comical interpretation of Conan the Barbarian and its announcement date timing, it had to be re-announced later to confirm that it was not an April Fools joke. You can check out the latest trailer above.
Read the full rundown (via Steam) below:
The treacherous wizard Thoth-Amon has devised a plan to resurrect the ancient evil that is Xaltotun. If he succeeds, he will condemn the world to an eternity of darkness and enslavement. Only you can stop him, but in order to do so you must use all your cunning. All your guile. You must summon all your courage and swordsmanship. You must … Chop Chop!
Conan Chop Chop is the most epic and realistic stick figure game ever to be set in the world of Conan the Barbarian, thus there will be an excessive amount of gore and flying limbs. Be warned that this may in turn lead to uncontrollable outbursts of joy and/or profanities, usually depending on which end of the sword you are on.
Play solo for the ultimate thrill of a roguelike or have your buddies along with you in online or couch co-op mode.
Become Conan… or someone else!
All brawns, no brain? No worries! Choose between a diverse cast of badass warrior gods, and add weapons and items to match your style!
Embark on quests of pure epicness!
You are about to save the world! The merchants are still going to charge you for their wares, and some townsfolk may even pester you with tasks of their own. But fear not, some of them will make it worth your while.
Explore in every direction!
Brave the shifting sands of Koth, explore the dark woods in Darkwood, move valiantly through the searing land of Hyperboria and see the icy world of Vanaheim. Conan® Chop Chop lets you explore to the left, right, up and down! A skilled player may even find himself jumping, dashing, or moving diagonally, resulting in the ultimate 3D experience.
Loot, loot and more loot!
Master the fine art of delicately bashing your enemies’ heads in with a broom and turning them into chop suey with a bastard sword. Conan® Chop Chop contains a wide variety of different weapons, trinkets and legendary items, each suited to tailor any kind of violent playstyle you can think of.
Master astonishing combos!
Perform the breathtaking 360° spin-attack to crack skulls all around you. Dash forward with the speed of light. Swing your sword both longways and sideways in a game that will have you gasping for air as you struggle to grasp the pure awesomeness of your fighting moves.
Before facing Thoth-Amon, you must defeat bosses such as The Giant Sand Worm of Koth and The Frost Giant of Vanaheim, neither of which are particularly sympathetic to your cause. Instead they will attempt to destroy you with killer moves like Lava Reflux, Tail Whip and Loogie Glob.
Completely random maps and tons of weapons and abilities to try out ensure that every new game will be a whole new experience. You are bound to die more than once, but you can unlock new weapons that will be available for your next play-through.
Conan Chop Chop launches February 25th for Windows PC (via Steam), Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
