NetEnt, the Swedish software developer, unveiled plans for a big action-packed, character-led slot to a bumper crowd at the ICE 2019 conference in London back in February and needless to say, the onlookers were thoroughly impressed by what they saw.
A few months have passed now and the supplier is making good progress with their fantasy-filled Conan branded video slot – a slot which is based on Conan the Barbarian; if you’re a tad squeamish, then maybe this isn’t the game for you. One look at the trailer and you get a deep insight into what to expect…
…and the first thing you’ll notice is the powerful soundtrack which delivers the same immersive experience as the previous battle-led release by NetEnt – Warlords Crystals of Power – where a new war rages on! A dusty, arid landscape appears with a ram’s skull resting on the soil. A single scorpion hurries for cover within the skeletal remains – but what’s he running from? As the camera pans wide, armour from the fallen lay upon the ground, alongside pools of blood and burning embers. What’s that I hear? Swords crashing against each other; bear metal engaged in deep battle! Duck! There’s an arrow incoming…
…but where are all the people? The camera moves until it can cover no more bloody ground and as it stops, a severed head crashes to the floor. A single sword is driven into the soil with blood dripping down it’s long silver blade and if you look closely, you’ll notice a dark figure – it’s Conan and he is taking no prisoners!
NetEnt has ploughed a lot of detail into the trailer and it’s mighty impressive. Conan – a barbarian themed slot unlike anything we’ve encountered before; it’s bold, exciting, feature rich and promises to be a thrilling experience and this fearsome character will soon be terrorising casinos (and NetEnt-powered bingo sites) across the internet.
Inspiration for the slot was taken from numerous books, films, comics, board games and video games over several decades, but NetEnt have given him a complete makeover. The sword and sorcery-themed game will boost the supplier’s award-winning portfolio of player-favourite branded video slots which currently encompass a range of themes, including world-famous film and television brands. Other popular slots in this category include; Narcos, Jumanji, Vikings, Motorhead, Planet of the Apes, Guns and Roses plus Jimi Hendrix.
Bryan Upton, Director of Games, said of the upcoming release; “Conan is a character and a brand with a fantastic history, and legions of fans all over the world. We are honoured to be creating our own adaptation of Conan and can’t wait to give him the hallmark NetEnt treatment.”
Themes and features of the slot include blood, war and movie. If Conan sounds like the perfect slot for you, keep your eyes peeled for the kick-ass action appearing at a NetEnt powered website near you soon!
