    Will there be frontal nudity. This is core to the Conan MMO concept.

    Good luck Funcom, TSW still one of the coolest games of the last few years, hope this works out. Probably won't play it though, survival games are boring as shit.

    I'll check it out. Funcom is a pretty creative company. They usually bring something cool and new to the mix. Somehow they usually end up messing up the overall package though.

    Even thought the launch was screwed up, AoC was a pretty good game for a while. Then they launched the expansion and blew it all up. TSW was / is good. I think it just got lost in all the other games out now. Tough to compete in a hyper crowded market.

    Honestly conan is not bad IP for that kind of brutal survival type game but there are a lot of those things on the market right now not sure how popular it will be.

    Conan is a fantastic setting for a fantasy survival game. They should have started development as soon as the survival games market started to explode, or have they and it just took them this long? Anyway, they only setting as good as Conan would be AD&D Dark Sun, someone please make a Dark Sun survival game

    I see they are using the Unreal 4 engine. Good. Maybe Funcom will surprise us.

    I absolutely loved the Secret World spinoff so I'll definitely be playing this.
    Slowly all the roles we act out become our identity. And in the end we are what we pretend to be.

    Pretty much, it is not an MMO.

    They're usually as persistent as the server owner wants them to be.

    A new trailer featuring in-game footage will be out tomorrow. A fantasy themed ARK with good melee combat is all I need. Pls don't screw this up Funcom.

    Here are the new screenshots they posted in the last 3 days: One, Two, Three

    Seems intriguing. Doesn't really look any different from any other survival game in its current state, but I can't wait to see what more comes of this.

    Everyone mentions AoC and TLW but how bout some Anarchy Online? shit was dope back in the day. One of the most revolutionary MMOS for its time. Mission system, random generated dungeons, chat system with bots and all sorts of creative shit you could do, and also the first to have linked items in chat. They had social dungeons that were also instanced, best of both worlds IMO. So much in that game was way ahead of its time.

    it also had the best Twinking.

    But then I leveled two characters through the Shadowlands Knowledge grind. By the time the keeper hit cap I was pretty much burned out on that shit forever.

    So according to the trailer after 6 months of development the game is already at the point where:

    - You can build and destroy stuff
    - Harvest
    - Fight (+fatalities)
    - Sacrifice others
    - Animals and some monsters are in
    - It's got some pretty nasty weather effects

    Yet Early Access won't start for another 3 months. If anything this actually fills me with some hope about the game. Because no doubt there are companies who would've already released it in its current state, since the core survival stuff is already there. I seriously hope the devs at Funcom will take their time, polish up the game and won't rush things.

    Here are the new screenshots.

    So is this going to be an actual MMO, or is this pretty much Conan Dayz:Epoch/ARK/H1Z1?

    It's the latter. 100 players per server (or at least that's what they're currently aiming for).

    BTW they did a Reddit AMA earlier this week (pretty much right after the trailer release). So I went ahead and asked them a question.

    Question:
    I know that this is very much a survival game and PVP is a key element of that. But will players be able to ignore the PvPing (to a certain degree) and just slay monsters, explore and adventure? I guess what I'm asking is how much PvE can we expect in the game (other than hunting for food, materials etc.)? Will there be any supernatural (fantasy) monsters? Undead, mystical beasts etc. Basically mobs that fit the Conan lore.

    Joel Bylos (Creative Director):
    Public and private servers, so you can play alone if you like. My creative vision for the game falls somewhere between Ark and Skyrim - a world that preexisted and filled with NPC factions - who you beat to death and then build your own kingdom on their ashes. There are supernatural creatures, you shall see.

    Ark and Skyrim huh? Not gonna lie, that sounds pretty sweet. Hopefully they can pull it off.

    Link to the full AMA, for anyone who's interested.
