THQ has just popped a demo of its new hack'n'slash Conan
onto Xbox Live, with a PlayStation Network version to follow later this week on October 11.
"In the Conan
playable demo the famed barbarian finds himself stranded in the Barachan Isles, a haven for pirates and thieves. A terrible plague known as the Black Death has spread across the land, and Conan must escape before it consumes him as well", according to the publisher.
Luckily, for Conan
at least, he ?crosses paths with the beautiful and fearless warrior queen, A'Kanna, whose ship can provide safe passage from the cursed islands. However, Conan must first save the ship's crew, which has been enslaved by the local cut-throats."
Download the 483MB demo of Conan
now for a taster of Conan?s 100+ fighting moves. Or don?t. It is entirely your choice. If you have an Xbox 360 that is.
If you have a PS3 you will have to wait a little longer... (insert pithy, acid comment here, or in the Forum).
