We got a brief glimpse of Conan Exiles on Xbox at Microsoft’s E3 press briefing, but it was very brief and we didn’t get to hear from the developer and publisher, Norwegian based Funcom. Now, however we have had confirmation that the open world survival game, which is set in the world of Conan the Barbarian, will be coming to Game Preview on Xbox One on August 16th 2017.
Not only that, but launching on the same day will be a new, free expansion that introduces a huge new land to explore, bringing the game out of the desert and into the cold, frozen highlands in the north.
In Conan Exiles the game encourages the player to Survive, Build and Dominate.
- Survive – Journey through a vast, seamless world. Explore crumbling ruins and uncover the history of ancient civilisations. Fend off hunger, thirst, and even insanity as you explore dark dungeons filled with monstrous creatures. Escape scouring sandstorms and bloodthirsty cannibals. Gain knowledge to craft new items and build stronger structures. Unleash your savage fury with brutal attacks that will see heads rolling and limbs flying.
- Build – Harvest anything from rocks and wood to rare minerals and human flesh. Use forges, workbenches, tanneries, and more to craft tools, armor, and powerful weapons. Construct a home, a fortress, or an entire city using the incredibly powerful building system. Build on almost everything, from ancient ruins to towering mountainsides. Craft a wide variety of furniture and decorations to customize your home and settlement.
- Dominate – Wage war on enemy players, blow up their city walls, and take control of the Exiled Lands. Capture thralls, break them on the Wheel of Pain, and put them to defend your settlement and craft rare items. Build an altar to your god and bring them offerings to earn their blessing and rewards. Summon and take control of towering avatars, and see your enemies driven before you as you crush their homes and their legacy.
