Oslo, Norway – February 11th, 2016 – Last month Funcom announced that the company is working on an open-world survival game set in the brutal lands of Conan the Barbarian, and that the game will enter into Early Access on the PC this summer. Today, Funcom is excited to release three new screenshots and a brand new behind-the-scenes video offering a further look into ‘CONAN EXILES’.
‘CONAN EXILES’ is an open-world survival game set in the brutal lands of Conan the Barbarian, the world’s greatest fantasy hero. The game can be played on private and public servers, either in multiplayer or local single-player. You start out as an exile, one of thousands cast out to fend for themselves in a barbaric wasteland, and from there you must hunt for food, grow crops, gather resources, craft tools and weapons, and build a shelter.
You can also band together with other players to build entire settlements and fortified strongholds, and wage war against your enemies as you unleash your fury in savage, fast-paced combat that will see limbs flying and heads rolling. You can even align yourself with the Hyborian gods, building altars to their glory and sacrificing the bloody hearts of enemy players upon them to shift the balance of power in your favor. Players will also have to face the purge: a special event where NPC armies from the neighboring kingdoms sweep in to destroy the progress that the exiles have made. Will you stand together with your fellow players against the purge, or will you use it to your advantage?
