film reboot and will see players traveling to the lands of Turan some 20 years after the events of the movie. Players will explore the city of Ardashir and take on new quests, encounters, raids, and dungeons, all inspired by the film and on display in the recently released Conan trailer
Conan the Barbarian debuts August 19th, and while there is no firm release date for The Savage Coast of Turan, film producer Fredrik Malmberg
says that fans will appreciate the synergy between the movie and Funcom's
MMORPG. "Many of the concepts, locations, and designs from the game development were utilized by the film team for consistency
