Conan is an action adventure video game featuring a story of epic brutality, sheer evil and visceral combat. Players will follow the journey of Conan the Cimmerian as he fights a vicious battle against a variety of enemies and an elusive power that threatens to consume the Hyborian world. Playing as Conan, players will take advantage of a deep and gratifying combat system that offers a variety of deadly weapons, fighting styles and interactive environments to battle hordes of enemies.

Heiko tom Felde, Director of TDK Mediactive Europe said: "Since the first brainstorm with our development team Cauldron we have had our sights set high to create a new reference in 3rd person action adventure games. We are delighted to have Jan Kant├╣rek as storywriter on the team who has a wealth of 'Conan' experience from translation of the books and who will pick up the storyline of this fantastic adventure after the first cult movie."

He added: "With a specially developed Conan 3D Engine allowing the creation of huge, detailed scenarios with unique atmospheres of intense light and shadow effects, we believe that 'Conan' the game will not only satisfy the high expectation of Conan fans but gamers alike with its amazing graphics and barbaric gameplay!"

Arthur M. Lieberman, Conan Properties, Inc., said: "We are delighted that renowned publisher of quality entertainment software TDK Mediactive has acquired the Conan license. The fantastic world of Conan is evolving since decades. Its indepth background offers a lot of possibilities foe computer games. This agreement will ensure that Conan fans will have their hero immortalized forever in high quality, captivating gameplay."
