THQ has confirmed earlier reports that the first title to spawn from its Conan licensing agreement (not to be confused with the Eidos MMO) is an action adventure game coming to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
Nihilistic Software (Vampire: The Masquerade) is the developer behind the game, which apparently features a deep combat system, a variety of deadly weapons and a story of "epic brutality, sheer evil and visceral combat." Not at all like God of War then.
"The strength and diversity of the Conan brand lends itself extremely well to the interactive format," said Jack Sorensen, THQ's executive VP of worldwide studios. "Through intense combat, familiar environments and next generation visuals, we believe Conan fans and action adventure enthusiasts alike are certain to embrace this future addition to the Conan universe."
According to THQ we can expect Conan in the shops sometime next year. We'll let you know how it shapes up.
