Funcom's new multiplayer open-world survival Conan Exiles launched into PC Early Access last week. The game's launch was a successful one, with Funcom revealing that the game sold 320,000 units during the first week and that all development costs have been recouped.
Funcom is working hard to live up to the Early Access goals and will be working together with the community to improve the game and update it with exciting new content and features. To start off, the developer has released a custom Conan Exiles Dev Kit, allowing creators everywhere to develop modifications for the game. Anyone can now create and upload 'mods' to the Conan Exiles Steam Workshop, whether it's small changes and quality of life improvements, or total conversion mods introducing new creatures, characters, and worlds.
We are deeply humbled and very grateful for the initial success of Conan Exiles. Funcom has gone through some challenging times in recent years and seeing the game we have poured so much time and effort into gain this amount of traction so quickly is very invigorating for everyone who works here. This is just the start of the Early Access adventure and we will do whatever it takes to make sure Conan Exiles turns into a fully-fledged game that has something to offer new and old fans of both Conan and survival games.
Funcom will be sharing more information about the future of Conan Exiles at this year's Game Developer Conference in San Francisco. Funcom will also be present on the showfloor at PAX East in Boston, where gamers can drop by to play the game and chat with the developers.
