Oslo, Norway – June 14th, 2017 – “What do I know of cultured ways, the gilt, the craft and the lie? I, who was born in a naked land and bred in the open sky. The subtle tongue, the sophist guile, they fail when the broadswords sing; Rush in and die, dogs – I was a man before I was king...”
Soon gamers on Xbox One will themselves get to experience how it feels being thrown into a naked land and be forced to survive under the open sky. Funcom today announced that Conan Exiles, the open-world survival game that sold half a million copies during its first month on PC, will be crushing its way into Xbox One Game Preview on August 16th 2017. The studio is also excited to announce that a free expansion update will launch on both PC and Xbox One on the same date. Today, Funcom released the first ever video and images from the expansion update giving players a glimpse at the entirely new region of Conan’s world they will soon get to explore.
“By releasing the free expansion update on PC and Xbox One simultaneously with the Xbox One Game Preview launch, we will provide players on both platforms with a new and fresh experience that expands the world of Conan Exiles by roughly 50% and comes complete with entirely new environments, monsters, buildings, game features, and more,” says Funcom Head of Games Lawrence Poe. “As the game is still in Early Access, everyone who has already bought or decides to buy the game while it’s still in development will get access to this massive update at no extra charge.”
Funcom is also excited to share that it will be updating Conan Exiles for the Xbox One X at a later date, taking advantage of the system’s superior hardware power to bring the world of Conan the Barbarian to life in beautiful 4K resolution.
After teasing the expansion update at E3 this week, Funcom will reveal the expansion in full later this summer. Fans are urged to follow www.conanexiles.com/expansion where new screenshots, videos, and information will be released.
Today, Wednesday June 14 th, Funcom will be live on the Xbox E3 Daily Show to talk about the upcoming Xbox launch. Fans can tune into the Xbox livestream channel between 1pm PST and 2pm PST where Funcom will also drop a few additional hints at the expansion update content.
Since launching into PC Early Access on January 31 st 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. The game will leave Early Access and release in full on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 in Q1 2018.
Conan Exiles quickly became a smash hit with the open-world survival audience, selling almost half a million units in the first month. Conan Exiles is an online survival game where players get to build anything from small homes to entire cities, explore a huge open world, team up with other players, or seek to dominate their enemies through brutal player vs. player combat.
