After showcasing the upcoming roguelike at Gamescom 2019, Funcom has decided to delay release of Conan Chop Chop to include online multiplayer.
When Funcom first announced Conan Chop Chop on April 1st, many people understandably thought it was a prank. In the end it turned out to be a sort of double prank, and a couple of months later we found out to everyone’s surprise it was a genuine game that we’d be able to play in September.
Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait a little bit longer than we were initially told. On the upside though, this mean’s we’ll be getting a better game with more features, including the addition of online multiplayer.
Players were able to demo Conan Chop Chop at Gamescom this year, and according to Mighty Kingdoms CEO Philip Mayes, though the reception to the game was very positive, there was one feature everyone was asking about.
“One of the things we get to do with the extra time is expand multiplayer from just couch co-op to also include full online multiplayer,” said Mayes. “This has undoubtedly been THE most requested feature after we started showing off the game, so we’re very excited for the opportunity to bring that in.”
So look forward to a better and more online-capable experience when we finally get our hands on Conan Chop Chop in quarter one of 2020. It will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.
