Conan Exiles Is Moving North

Posted on 10 Aug 2017

After six months in Steam’s Early Access Conan Exiles is finally ready to move up to phase two. In the video above developers talk about why the game is about to get even bigger and better. Besides getting a brand new Northern region and a boatload of featured, the core mechanics are also getting revamped.

The feedback gathered over the period of six months has resulted in reworked combat, movement, loot system, exploration, enemy and friendly AI, and rebalanced building mechanics. Speaking about the latter, those of you who want to make your forts impenetrable, at least as much as possible, a bunch of security measures and traps are being added. And if you just like to tear something someone else built, well enjoy the trebuchets.

For more details on what the new content brings you must watch the video above. Or if you’re already happy with what was said, Conan Exiles update is going to land on August 16th, 2017.

“I am very proud of the team and the work they have done so far in Early Access,” says Creative Director Joel Bylos. “They have really been working their arses off fixing bugs, squashing exploits, improving core features, and they have also added entire new features and content such as siege warfare, climbing, dungeons, and much more. They have also built this entire expansion update which makes the game bigger and more chock full of features than ever before. We’re certainly not done and we still have a long way to go until full launch, but we are very proud of what Conan Exiles is today and we are very grateful for all the support, feedback, and input we have received from our community thus far.”

Since launching into PC Early Access on January 31st 2017, the development team has been working tirelessly to introduce new content, improve mechanics, and eradicate bugs and exploits. The team has added siege weapons, a new dungeon, a dye system, new armor and weapons, new decorations, avatar defenses, new building pieces, and much more.
