Funcom announced that its open-world survival game Conan Exiles made its debut on Xbox One as part of the Xbox Game Preview program. The Xbox One version of Conan Exiles includes all the content of the PC version, benefiting from over six months of Early Access where the developers have added a wealth of new content, features, and improvements.
The game's debut on Xbox One also marks the release of The Frozen North, a free expansion that increases the size of the world by 70% and takes Conan Exiles from the desert into the snowy highlands. The Frozen North also introduces entirely new gameplay mechanics such as fish traps, beekeeping, and cooking. Brewing, a new crafting system, will allow players to make alcohol which will also keep them warm in cold environments. Players will also get to dedicate themselves to a new religion, giving them the ability to summon the avatar of Ymir, the Lord of Storm and War, and wreak havoc on enemy players and crush their cities under his feet.
Today’s launch on Xbox One and the release of The Frozen North expansion updates is an important milestone on the game’s Early Access roadmap. During the first six months of Early Access on PC our focus has been to work with our core community eliminating exploits, improving core systems, and fleshing out both content and features. In this phase two of Early Access the game is bigger and better than ever and we are very excited about bringing the game to an entirely new audience on Xbox One.
Conan Exiles is available on Xbox One for $34.99/£30.79/€34.99. Conan Exiles is planned to leave Early Access and see full launch on PC, Xbox One, and PS4 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.
