First Screens For Open-World Conan Game

Following the game's announcement last month, Funcom has now shared new screenshots for Conan Exiles and released a "developer diary" video in which designers talk about the game's story and ambitions. You don't play as Conan the Barbarian, but rather as an "exile" who has been crucified and left to die. Conan cuts you down, hands you his ax, and challenges you to set out and dominate the world.

You start with nothing in Conan Exiles and must find shelter and gather resources. Your ultimate goal is to rule a kingdom, and it will take some amount of combat to get there.

In keeping with the Conan tradition, Conan Exiles aims to be brutal as it relates to violence.

"You see heads coming off, you see arms coming off, you see blood, you see gore, you see dents in armor," a developer says in the video. "These are the things we're aiming for."

The full video also showcases some of the technology behind Conan Exiles, including tessellation-based displacement for foot-imprinting in the sand. There is also a system that allows sand to blow across the desert surface. This could eventually be applied to elements like water and snow, a designer said.

As for the new screenshots, they show off the game's sand-swept word and some animals like a rhinoceros and hyena. Note that these are pre-alpha screenshots.


Based on the video and screenshots, it seems like it's still pretty early days for Conan Exiles, which is described as an open-world game. It is multiplayer-centric, though you can play alone, too.

The game will launch for PC through Steam Early Access this summer; a console version is also in the works, but Funcom did not provide any details on it outside of announcing its existence.

    So basically an Age of Conan 2.0. Lets hope funcom doesn't 🤬 this one up. Conan doesn't get enough love outside of a few dark horse comics.

    Another article.
    Get ready Conan fans! You can now learn about our upcoming game based on Robert E. Howard's Conan.

    Conan Exiles is an open-world survival game where you must survive, build and dominate in the brutal lands of Conan the Barbarian.

    You are an exile, one of thousands cast out to fend for themselves in a barbaric wasteland swept in sandstorms and besieged by enemies on every side. Here only the strongest will survive while the weak will be left to die and slowly rot under the burning sun.

    Hungry, thirsty, and alone, your very first battle is that against the harsh environment. Grow crops or hunt animals for food. Harvest resources to build weapons and tools. Build a shelter to survive. Ride across a vast world and explore alone, or band together with other players to build entire settlements and fortified strongholds that can withstand fierce invasions.

    When strong enough, march forth into battle and wage war against your enemies as you fight to dominate the exiled lands. Unleash your fury in savage, fast-paced combat and execute 🤬 and bone-crushing attacks that will see heads rolling and limbs flying, or call upon the wrath of the heavens to aid you by sacrificing enemy players on the altars of the gods.

    Who will you be? A warrior, a hunter, a builder ... or a king?

    Conan Exiles will be released for Early Access on PC in the summer of 2016, with full launch on both PC and consoles to follow. While it supports single-player, Conan Exiles is first and foremost a multiplayer game that can be played on both public and private servers.
