It’s been quite a few years since we’ve seen Conan the Barbarian in the video game realm, but it looks like he’ll be making a comeback soon. Today Funcom announced Conan Exiles, an open-world survival game set in the world of Conan.
Funcom has set the game for a release on PC through Steam Early Access in summer of 2016, with a full release on PC and console to follow later. It hasn’t been specified yet which consoles the game will be coming to. Here’s a description of the game from Funcom,
An open-world survival game 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 by terrible sandstorms and besieged on every side by enemies. Here you must fight to survive, build and dominate.
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 strongholds to withstand fierce invasions.
When strong enough, march forth into battle and wage war against your enemies as you fight to dominate the exiled lands. Sacrifice enemy players on the altars of the gods and shift the balance of power your way. Unleash your fury in savage, fast-paced combat and execute bloody and bone-crushing attacks that will see heads rolling and limbs flying.
Survive. Build. Dominate.
Play alone in single-player mode, or forge alliances and make enemies online on both public and private servers.
Will you dominate the exiled lands or will your enemies sacrifice you on the altar of their god?
