Funcom will unveil another part of its award-winning “Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures” at a game convention in Leipzig, Germany, this week.

Funcom, an international gaming firm with a major presence in Durham, recently pushed back the release of the Conan title. It has already won several awards and is a featured title for Microsoft.

The next piece to be shown is a siege warfare system. Conan is a massively multiplayer online title.

“It is time for the gloves to come off,” says Game Director Gaute Godager. “This is the first time we will let consumers get their hands on the game at a trade show, and we are kicking off by letting them experience the intensity of player-versus-player battles. This is the true Conan experience – bloody and barbaric!”
