It feels like an absolute age since Funcom and Mighty Kingdom first announced Conan Chop Chop. Finally though it is here, with availability on PC and console.

Hitting Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch and PC, it was back on April Fool’s Day 2019 when Mighty Kingdom teased Conan Chop Chop – a hack n slashing roguelite that would cater for 1-4 players. It was immediately dismissed as one of those crazy April Fool’s jokes. But Mighty Kingdom knew what they were doing. Come June of the same year, the game was officially confirmed, set for a September 2019 launch on PC and the usual console formats. Unfortunately though, it wasn’t long before that launch date was pushed back to Feb 2020, and then further still to Q2 2020 and then even later in the year. After that, all went quiet.

Until now that is as Conan Chop Chop is here. And it looks to be just as mad as the initial premise dictated. 

Priced up at £16.99, Conan Chop Chop is looking good to deliver one hell of a single player experience, but like many games, it promises to get even better still as multiplayer opportunities open up.

Either solo or in online and local co-op, you’ll be given the chance to step into the leathery sandals of Hyboria’s greatest thin-limbed heroes as you look to put a stick in the evil machinations of the treacherous wizard Thoth-Amon.

“Our team set out to create a vision of Conan unlike any before it, and today we’re so excited to share it with the world,” says Kimbo Forrest, Creative Lead at Mighty Kingdom. “With the chaos turned to 11, we’ve condensed the brawny, ferocious spirit of the barbarian we all know and love into this shiny, party-sized Conan.”

In Conan Chop Chop you will be found wielding Conan’s final stick figure form as you chop, bonk, jab and loot your way through oodles of creatures and bosses. These are as diverse as they are peculiar – brain spiders, anyone? – yet with four unique characters, magically generated maps, trillions of item combinations and skills to equip and upgrade, and a satisfying and responsive combat system, Conan Chop Chop is well forged to please both veteran Conan fans and newcomers alike.

Key features include:

  • ONLINE AND COUCH CO-OP – While you can choose to save the world solo, Conan Chop Chop really puts the party in “party game” when you step into its multiplayer mayhem. Featuring 1-4 player online and couch co-op, you can choose to play by yourself, with friends, or random people as you save the world from damnation.
  • UNIQUE CAST OF HEROES – Want to get up close and personal, or shoot your opponents from afar? Choose from a cast consisting of the most famous heroes in Hyboria, from the sword-swinging Conan to the bow-bending Bêlit. Chop, shoot, or simply blast your foes into tiny bits.
  • LEVEL UP YOUR CHARACTERS – In Conan Chop Chop, what kills you also makes you stronger. Use the experience you earn from each run to unlock character-specific perks and abilities to conquer the enemies that defeated you. Build the skill tree for each one of the characters and discover their unique builds.
  • TRILLIONS OF ITEM COMBOS – Acquire new skills as you venture to the far reaches of the world, looting magical charms, weapons, and armors. Experiment with different item combinations to discover potentially overpowered abilities and new ways to play.
  • MAGICALLY GENERATED WORLD – No two runs through Conan Chop Chop are the same, thanks to procedurally generated maps and dungeon layouts. Discover new shops, challenges and treasures with every playthrough.
  • RUTHLESS BOSS FIGHTS – Test your might against unique dungeon bosses, such as The Giant Sand Worm of Koth and The Frost Giant of Vanaheim. Some bosses may even roam the wilderness, guarding golden chests, powerful artifacts, and other riches.

You can check out how Conan Chop Chop plays by taking in the launch trailer below, but from there, head to the digital store of your choice and grab a download. Conan Chop Chop is available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5, PC and Nintendo Switch.
