The King has arrived! No, not that Elvis chap. Not the guy with the Hobbity friends, either. Nope, this is the first great king of modern heroic fantasy: King Conan!

The game (if you hadn't surmised this already) is based on the fiction of Robert E. Howard, who has the distinction of being Conan's real world Dad. It's an MMO based in the fictional and troubled low fantasy realm of Hyborea, where Conan presides over a dark and ugly land. You won't find the pretty elves of its main target - World of Warcraft - here. You'll find troubled races of men and many moral shades of grey.

You'll also find a real-time combat system that differentiates itself from traditional turn-based MMO combat. There is also a player-versus-player siege combat mode that enables guilds to attack one another's cities (which they've built from scratch), inviting battle on an epic scale. You'll also find a single-player experience at the start of the game that Funcom promises will emotionally attach players to their character and provide 15 to 20 hours of game-play before the multi-player section of the game starts in earnest.

Swords, sorcery and scantily-clad saucy strumpets. What more could you ask for? Booze? Okay, that's in there too...
