The rare anti-delay announcement.
Conan Unconquered

It's not often we get to put up a story about how a game is going to launch earlier than expected, but that is precisely what is happening with Conan Unconquered. Funcom and developer Petroglyph announced today that the upcoming strategy title set in the Conan the Barbarian universe will now launch on May 29.

The previously planned release day was May 30.

Alright, so it's not a HUGE bump, but it's still something to celebrate if you've been looking forward to this! As a little reminder, Conan Unconquered has some Command & Conquer vets at the development helm. It's a fully-fledged RTS that allows you to play from start to finish alone or with a co-op partner.

Also revealed today are the Minimum and Recommended system specs for Conan Unconquered.

  • Windows 7, 8 or 10 (64 bit)
  • 8GB of RAM
  • Core i3 (dual core) @3Ghz+ or equivalent
  • Intel HD Graphics 620 or DX11 graphics card w/ minimum 1GB dedicated RAM
  • Storage – 10GB
  • Windows 7, 8 or 10 (64 bit)
  • 8GB of RAM
  • Core i5 (quad core) @3Ghz+ or equivalent
  • Nvidia Geforce GTX 970 or AMD RX580 or better
  • Storage – 10GB
“We're eagerly looking forward to launch and to getting Conan Unconquered into the hands of players. The game has really come together and although the skill cap is high, it's tremendously fun to play,” says Lawrence Poe, Chief Product Officer at Conan Unconquered publisher Funcom.

The upcoming RTS has already received positive previews, with several journalists comparing it to the highly successful game They Are Billions. The game has a number of features that set it apart from the other games in the genre, however. Among them the fact that you control a hero, as well as the army you amass. Also, the game’s co-op mode and the newly announced challenge mode, in which players can challenge one another on a unique map with a unique leaderboard, look to be welcome additions to the RTS genre.
