Funcom has released the pets update for Conan Exiles alongside the Savage Frontier Pack.
Pets is described as “the biggest update since the game left Early Access” and lets players tame animals and use them in battle. In addition to the new taming mechanic, the update introduces a new dungeon called Midnight Grove and a new religion that allows players to summon Jhebbal Sag.
“Pets and taming are important new additions to the gameplay in Conan Exiles,” Creative Director Joel Bylos said. “This is something players have been asking for and we are very excited to finally be able to bring it to them. First you must head out into the world and either find an animal egg or a baby, put them in your animal pen, and then make sure you feed them properly.
“Once grown up they can become trusty companions in battle or even useful in production of materials. From tigers to rhinos – there are many different pets to tame and if you feed them right they might even turn into a rare version of that animal.”
The developer has also released the Savage Frontier Pack on PC for $9.99 and adds more pet skins, new equipment, and new building pieces. Xbox One and PlayStation 4 players will have to wait until October 17th for the DLC.
Conan Exiles is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
