Funcom has announced that a major free expansion update will be released on August 16th for Conan Exiles that will herald the start of phase two of its Early Access adventure. As such, Funcom released today a video that summarizes the journey Conan Exiles has made in the first six months of Early Access, detailing all the new content, features, and the significant improvements the team has done to create a bigger and better game.
Conan Exiles is planned to leave Early Access and see full launch on PC in Q1 2018. While the team has been able to expand and improve the game significantly the first six months of Early Access, there are several months left and the team will continue to work side-by-side with the community to realize Conan Exiles’ full potential.
Creative Director Joel Bylos said:
“I am very proud of the team and the work they have done so far in Early Access. They have really been working their arses off fixing bugs, squashing exploits, improving core features, and they have also added entire new features and content such as siege warfare, climbing, dungeons, and much more. They have also built this entire expansion update which makes the game bigger and more chock full of features than ever before. We’re certainly not done and we still have a long way to go until full launch, but we are very proud of what Conan Exiles is today and we are very grateful for all the support, feedback, and input we have received from our community thus far.”
Since launching into PC Early Access on January 31st, the development team has added siege weapons, a new dungeon, a dye system, new armor and weapons, new decorations, avatar defenses, new building pieces, and much more.
