"Platform: Just PC for the foreseeable"
And in one sentence, that's the reason I won't be playing it; otherwise it looks halfway entertaining. If it ever comes to a Linux PC or the PS4 then maybe, but I won't hold my breath.
Greetings, traveller, and welcome back to The Register Plays Games, our monthly gaming column. This one has been intensely anticipated by myself and thousands of others for eight long years. We had abandoned all hope, but now it's here and it's not even finished yet. So without further ado... Conan the Barbarian was once …
.. It has no bread and sausages. An army marches on stomach after all! Ok, it still has butter(lord), but my soldiers really miss sausage sarnies*. Or perhaps they're improvising out of the grain, butter and hogs I give them.
But if one is a fan of the previous titles, this one is worth getting. My game has been remarkably bug-free & fun. Like capturing Chaikand, which seems to be where all the children end up. I have many, but thus far they seem to be refusing to grow up. Then again, they're only about a year old, so a possibly a little young to be trainee murderlords. I'm trying to educate them though, sometimes by <thwacking> enemy militia off castle walls. Remember, this pre-dates HSE/OHSA regulations so it's quite possible to fall off walls, ladders, siege towers.
There's also a steadily growing set of mods available via Nexus.. It doesn't have Steamworks support yet, but that seems to be on the to-do list. None of the patches have broken my game yet, and this pleases me.
*Or perhaps that's just me. Seeing the bread & sausage icons in the previous games used to give me cravings.
