Funcom has announced that Conan Exiles, the studio’s open-world survival game set in the savage lands of Conan the Barbarian, will leave Early Access and launch in both digital and retail stores on May 8th. To celebrate this announcement, Funcom released some new screenshots and a brand new trailer which also offers a glimpse at some of the new content that will make its way to the final version, including an entirely new biome and a new combat system.
Creative Director Joel Bylos said:
“Early Access and Game Preview has been an absolutely invaluable tool for us in developing Conan Exiles. Being able to get direct feedback from players has allowed us to focus our work on improvements, bug fixes, and new content. We still have a few months to go and are by no means done squashing bugs and making improvements. We’re working hard on new content and gameplay mechanics – including the new jungle and volcano biomes!”
Conan Exiles entered Early Access on PC on January 31st this year. The game is an open-world survival game set in the brutal lands of Conan the Barbarian. It i, players must survive in a savage world, build their kingdom, and dominate their enemies in brutal combat and epic warfare.
“You start with nothing but your bare hands and forge the legacy of your clan, building anything from a small home to gigantic fortresses and entire cities. Wage war using swords, bows, siege weapons, and even take control of giant avatars of the gods and lay waste to enemy cities.”
Conan Exiles can be experienced in both local single-player and in persistent online multiplayer.
