Funcom's open world survival game, Conan Exiles, is about to launch on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
The studio shared a new video today which shows the player's journey through the game world, going from location to location including the new Swamp region. In this area, players will also encounter the Lemurians who perform orgiastic rituals to please the lust and death goddess Derketo.
Creative Director Joel Bylos said:
Conan Exiles is a survival game combining brutal combat, powerful building systems, and intense player vs. player warfare, all set in a vast and open sandbox. But it’s certainly not an empty sandbox and we’ve gone to great lengths to give the world a sense of place and history. Players will come upon points of interest as they explore the world, characters they can interact with, and they can delve into dungeons and uncover the secrets of ancient civilizations. Conan Exiles is definitely about surviving and building your own world, but it’s also about discovering the world that we have crafted.
Conan Exiles will be available on May 8th for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. You can pre-order a retail copy for consoles via Amazon or just dive into the game right now via Steam Early Access on PC.
