Funcom announced that Conan Exiles, the studio's open-world survival game set in the savage lands of Conan the Barbarian, will shed its Early Access skin and launch in both digital and retail stores on the 8th of May, 2018, for PS4, Xbox One and PC. To celebrate today’s announcement, Funcom released a brand new trailer which also offers a glimpse at some of the new content that will make its way to the final version of the game.
Currently available on Early Access on PC and Xbox One Game Preview, Conan Exiles is an open-world survival game set in the brutal lands of Conan the Barbarian. Here 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.
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!
Funcom also announced that Conan Exile is getting a massive Collector's Edition, which comes with the following:
- Figurine: 15 cm / 6 inch Conan the Barbarian polyresin figurine, modeled after Conan from the Conan Exiles cinematic trailer
