Conan Unconquered – Co-op strategy explained!

Conan Unconquered – Co-op strategy explained!

Conan Unconquered is a real-time survival strategy game set in the world of Conan the Barbarian, and will be coming to PC on May 30th. This game has been developed by Petroglyph, and will be published by Funcom.

In the trailer below the developers at Petroglyph (of Command and Conquer fame) will explain how they developed their co-op strategy in Conan Unconquered, and how they’ve tackled the many challenges of bringing 2-player play to this complex RTS game. This new video features interviews with the developers, and a further glimpse into the co-op aspect of Conan Unconquered.

While most comparable RTS games are purely single-player or 1v1, the development team behind Conan Unconquered were faced with a new challenge; namely, producing a game that works equally well in co-op mode. In co-op mode each player will have their own hero and army, but they will share resources and most of the buildings. Co-op is not simply going to be about double the number of enemies. Instead, the increased difficulty will mainly be about what kind of mobs you face and where the attacks will come from.

The upcoming game will also feature a previously unannounced mechanism called challenge mode, which allows you to create and share a link with the exact same map, settings, and unlockable feats as in the game you just had. This allows you to challenge your friends to beat your own score in a much more comparable way than it would have been with randomized battle. Each link will also come with its own leaderboard.
