Conan Exiles Releases Soon, But How Would Conan Fare In Our World? Watch The Videos!
Funcom’s open-world survival game, Conan Exiles, is ready to launch and arrives on PC, Xbox One, and PS4 in less than a week! On May 8th, players will finally have the opportunity to fully explore and attempt to survive in the land of Conan the Barbarian. It promises to be an exciting, but unforgiving world.
"Survive in a savage world, build your kingdom, and dominate your enemies in brutal combat and epic warfare.
Start with nothing but your bare hands and forge the legacy of your clan, building anything a small home to gigantic fortresses and entire cities. Wage war using swords, bows, siege weapons, and even take control of giant avatars of the gods and lay waste to enemy cities.
Explore a vast, seamless world full of challenge and opportunity. Hunt animals for resources, slay monsters for treasure, and delve deep underground to discover the secrets of ancient civilizations."
Let's face it — Conan has a much better chance of surviving in his world that we ever would. We'll be able to conquer it in-game and even thrive, but in real life, it's unlikely that most of us would make it very long when faced with murderous beasts, cunning enemies, and the necessity to provide our own food and shelter.
That said, Funcom seems to think that the reverse is true, as well. Conan the Barbarian might not know how to handle our world, either. Those modern conveniences that we take for granted? They might just be Conan's undoing! Watch the hilarious videos below to see what happens when Conan encounters our world.
First off... Scandinavian Furniture.
Here's what Conan had to say about the experience:
"I have found a book ten times more diabolical than the Necronomicon or the moldering scrolls of Skelos," said Conan the Barbarian. "It's called Assembly Instructions."
The first time I saw a robot vacuum cleaner in action, I was pretty amazed. How do you think Conan feels? Hint: my dog agrees!
And finally, an airplane... it's just a magical flying beast, right?
By the time Conan Exiles hits PC, Xbox, and PS4 in a few days, it will have spent 14 months in Early Access on PC and 9 months in Game Preview on Xbox One. During that time, developers have made major improvements to the game. The world has more than doubled in size and of course, bugs and issues have been eliminated. Key features such as farming, fast travel, world bosses, legendary weapons, warpaint, new gear have been added to improve the overall gaming experience. Combat has been tested and upgraded with an entirely new combat system, designed to be both brutal and tactical. As a whole, there are high hopes for Conan Exiles to be an impactful game in the open-world survival genre.
Even for players in early access, the May 8th is a big day. A huge launch patch will expand the game world even further and PS4 players will get their first chance to play.
