The cute claymore wielding Conan Chop Chop looks like it might finally be getting a kind of firm release date for early 2021, after several delays.
The rogue-lite party piece steeped int the lore of Conan The Barbarian first popped up on our radar as something of an April fools joke. However, after fan reception was overwhelmingly positive, this top-down fisticuffs got a fully-fledged title. Since the 2019 joke became a fully-fledged adventure, gamers have seen the hack and slasher pushed back from September 2019 to Q1 2020, then onto late 2020, and now early 2021. According to Funcom’s Chief Creative Officer Joel Bylos, it’s all about the scope of this adventure.
“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” concludes Funcom’s Chief Creative Officer Joel Bylos. “And besides, the only crunch we want in our Conan game is the crunch of bones beneath our sandalled feet.”
Developer Mighty Kingdom has taken the oddles of extra time to add a bunch more random events, new traps, and vicious minibosses roaming the world of Conan the Cimmerian Barbarian. What was an already huge, 14 trillion possible combinations of items is now even larger and will likely increase before 2021.
While we’re never great at waiting around, after certain recent releases unleashed a bug-ridden experience on players, we’ll bide our time before seeing our enemies broken before us. Anybody else looking to take on this unusual mix of murder and multiplayer fun can pick up Conan Chop Chop on the PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch when it arrives next year. For now, you can check out more over on the official website or just prepare with any number of other Conan inspired games too.
