Today Funcom released a new trailer of its open-world survival game Conan Exiles focusing on the visuals on Xbox.

To be more precise, the trailer gives an overview of the optimization done for Xbox Series X & S. On top of that, we see a comparison with the game on Xbox One, which really isn’t too flattering for Microsoft’s older console.

The optimizations include 4K resolution, volumetric lighting and fog, improved water, increased draw distance for foliage and grass, higher texture quality, higher view distance quality, increased shadow rendering distance, increased shadow quality, and increased effects and post-processing quality.

You can check it out below.

Incidentally, Conan Exiles recently received the Isle of Siptah expansion. was announced a few weeks ago the game is available for PC, PS4, and Xbox.

Here’s how Funcom describes the expansion.

“Isle of Siptah is a massive expansion to the open world survival game Conan Exiles, featuring a vast new island to explore, huge and vile new creatures to slay, new building sets and a whole new gameplay cycle. Fight the elder races in new underground dungeons. Defeat demonic monstrosities that spawn from a storm of pure chaos. Dominate the surge to secure the island’s only supply of thralls.

You arrive at the island shipwrecked and alone. With nothing but the scraps on your back, you craft the tools you need to survive. At first a simple camp and some crude stone tools, with time a fortress and brutal greatswords made from hardened steel or obsidian.

Your eyes are drawn towards the center of the island, where a dark tower looms above the landscape. The violent storm that swirls around it seems to gather strength and unspeakable horrors stalk within. But your most dangerous foe may be the other survivors on the island, as resources are scarce and the fight for survival is savage and brutal.”
