Funcom has released a new trailer for its upcoming open-world survival game set in the world of Conan the Barbarian, Conan Exiles.
“Surviving in the world of Conan means a lot more than staying well fed and hydrated,” the developer explains. “Here you must escape scouring sandstorms, murderous cannibals, corruption of the mind, other players out to conquer your lands, and giant avatars of the gods threatening to crush you and your home. This video takes a closer look at what it takes to survive in the world of Conan, a world where only the strong can live and the weak will perish.”
The game can be played on both private and public servers, in either multiplayer or local single-player.
“If there ever was a world that would truly test your ability to survive, it?s the world of Conan,” Creative Director Joel Bylos said. “His world is vast, beautiful, and full of opportunity, but it?s also a world that will stop at nothing to slit your throat and see you bleed out at the feet of your enemies. Survival in ?Conan Exiles? is more than staying fed and hydrated; here you must defend against sandstorms, bloodthirsty cannibals, and players sending towering god avatars to crush your settlements.”
Conan Exiles will launch for PC via Steam Early Access on January 31st, 2017. Following this, Xbox One players will be able to access the game via Xbox Game Preview in spring 2017.
