Today, developer Funcom announced plans for a single-player campaign expansion for its popular licensed survival game Conan Exiles via a quarterly financial report.
The survival MMO didn’t exactly enjoy a stellar critical reception at launch, but it has since found a substantial audience nonetheless. That’s prompted the developer to expand its horizons beyond multiplayer to a storydriven campaign that features Conan the Barbarian himself.
Unfortunately, that’s about all we know about the nature of Conan Exiles’ single-player mode thus far, save for the fact that it’s bound for PS4, Xbox One, and PC when it launches. Don’t expect to see it crop up too soon, though, as it’s still very much in the pre-production stages.
Regardless, we’re just excited to hear the game is due to offer players who prefer a solo experience. Particularly so, given the game’s license lends itself to storytelling. It will be interesting to see exactly which direction Funcom decides to take it.
Elsewhere, the report mentions the developers other projects related to the Conan franchise. They’ll be teaming up with Petroglyph Games on a PC-exclusive game that has yet to be officially unveiled.
This time next year, Funcom is also due to release a differenct collaborative effort, this time with Rock Pocket Games. Again, there’s been no word on exactly what that is.
They also have a co-op multiplayer shooter based on the Heroic Signatures franchise and an untitled open world multiplayer game in the pipelines, due to release on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
