Conan: The Dark Axe

  • Released on Oct 23, 2007
  • By Cauldron for PC, PS3, Xbox 360

[edit] Background

Black-haired and sullen-eyed, a thief, a reaver, a slayer. The legends that surround his name, speak of the world before history, where shadows of magic and dark alien gods shrouded the known world and the fate of whole empires were dependent on the strength and skills of a single sword. And this is one of those legends.

[edit] Gameplay

Take control of the sword of the greatest hero to roam the lands of Hyboria - Conan. Having seen your native village of Grannach burnt to the ground you now begin your quest for revenge.

You will fight your way across the Black Mountains and rivers in search of the cult who brought death to your home. You will have to master various swords, axes and the mace in order to complete this perilous journey.

As the story unfolds you will find yourself face to face with strange mystical creatures that test your fighting skills to the death.

Discover the entrances to temples and caves along the way, where you will scale walls, leap obstacles, solve puzzles and retrieve the pieces of the Atlantean Sword in order to help you in achieving your destiny of defeating The Vulture Cult.
