The latest Game Informer magazine issue reveals details for THQ's first title in the recently acquired Conan franchise, developed by Nihilistic Software, known for such titles as EA's Marvel Nemesis: Rise of the Imperfects, Vampire The Masquerade: Redemption, and Blizzard's cancelled Starcraft Ghost. The new title, scheduled for Q1 2008, is totally separate from Funcom's MMO title, but rather inspired by the late Robert E. Howard barbaric character, and, similar to God of War, a hack'n slash action game with puzzle solving.
