Conan Chop Chop Releasing Early 2021


Originally set to release in September 2019, the world of Mighty Kingdom and Funcom’s Conan Chop Chop will release in early 2021.

This hack-and-slash, which originally started as an April Fools’ joke, increased in scope since its original announcement. With both support for couch and online co-op, more random events, new traps, and vicious minibosses have been added with this additional development time.

The development team is proud to announce that the number of possible item combinations has been increased from 14 trillion to an amount too high for the human brain to fathom. Between this and its procedurally generated world, the title was designed with replayability in mind.

According to Funcom’s Chief Creative Officer Joel Bylos:

[testimonials user=” email=” name=” position=” photo=”]”If we had launched this year, there’d be half the number of cute pigs in the game. And you can’t launch a Conan game without that. And besides, the only crunch we want in our Conan game is the crunch of bones beneath our sandalled feet.”[/testimonials]

For those that’d like to see the world of Conan the Cimmerian Barbarian in action, you can view the trailer that started it all below:
