Funcom reveals that Conan Chop Chop is a real game - E3 2019

The April Fool's trailer that Funcom shared for Conan Chop Chop wasn't a joke after all.


It looks like Conan fans are in for some more action this year, as Funcom revealed during today’s PC Gaming Show at E3 2019 that Conan Chop Chop is actually a real game being developed by Mighty Kingdom.

The studio known for Conan Exiles and Secret World took to the stage of the PC Gaming Show to talk about the upcoming rogue-like, revealing that the trailer they originally shared on April 1 was not a joke at all. Developer by Mighty Kingdom, Conan Chop Chop is set to arrive this September, giving players a 4-player cooperative adventure that allows them to take on the role of Canon, Pallantides, Valeria, or Bêli.

Conan Chop Chop is a real game

Using a 2D-like format, Conan Chop Chop will allow players to move left, right, up, and down as they explore a randomly generated Hyboria. Like most roguelikes, Conan Chop Chop will feature a permadeath feature that resets the player to the start of a brand-new version of the level each time they are killed in action.

The game looks to provide a completely different Conan experience than previous titles that we’ve seen coming out of Funcom. According to the official Steam page’s game description:

Conan Chop Chop is a 1-4 player action-adventure game with rogue-like elements, set in the savage world of Conan the Barbarian. Venture forth in a world full of strange and wondrous creatures… and bash ‘em all to bits! Fight, loot, quest and explore as you strive to become the baddest badass of all time.”

We’ll keep an eye out for more info on Conan Chop Chop. It’s slated for a September 3 release date right now.
