A new update for the open-world survival Early Access game Conan Exiles has been released, developer Funcom announced. This update introduces the Trebuchet siege weapon, opening for a whole new way to approach player vs. player warfare in the game.
Players need to craft the Trebuchet, place it, and then aim it by pushing it around. In-game physics come into play when figuring out how far you want to shoot: by adding and removing rocks as ballast you determine how far your projectile will go. You can arm your Trebuchet with huge boulders and even explosive Demon-fire jars that will create a fiery havoc wherever it comes crushing down. Thanks to Conan Exiles real-time destruction physics, buildings will crumble and city walls will break as the barrage of rocks and explosives come raining down on your enemies.
Conan Exiles is now available as an Early Access game for PC. Conan Exiles's full launch on PS4, Xbox One and PC is set for Q1 2018.
