Conan Exiles is Funcom’s take on an open world, survival Conan world where players write the stories and create the fun with the tools at their disposal. The game is finally exiting early access to launch globally on May 8th 2018, and much has changed. Since our review almost a year ago, the dev team has continued to iron out issues and improve gameplay based on early access feedback. Now that we’re a month away from launch, are the new changes worth checking out? Here’s what’s coming. A New Combat System The new combat system is very different and a huge improvement on the old one. The new system for Conan Exiles will have the brutal, tactical and savage combat which a Conan game deserves. The first thing you might notice is the new visual style. All weapons (swords, daggers, hammers, maces, spears, great swords etc) are getting their own attacks and animations. The attacks consist of a wide range of lunges, sweeps, jumps, cleaves, slashes and dashes. This … [Read more...] about Conan Exiles 2018: Is Conan Exiles Worth Playing At Launch Come May 8th?
Funcom has been busy gearing up for the May 8th launch of their Early Access title Conan Exiles. The buy-to-play survival game has been available for purchase for PC since January 2017, but the full retail release will be the first time PlayStation 4 players will have a chance to try the game. The Funcom team has created several videos to build up excitement for the release. One of the more interesting videos is a 30 second live action piece that highlights the crafting/building component of the game: Conan Exiles entered Early Access with a bang, surpassing 50,000 concurrent players within a month. Unfortunately, Funcom failed to fix basic networking issues that prevented more than ~20 people from playing on a server together. A year of patches later and the game is averaging ~4,000 concurrent players. The retail release will likely lead to a boost in numbers and will serve as a good excuse for Early Access players to give the game another chance. We're eager to see what Funcom has … [Read more...] about Conan Exiles Teases May 8 Launch With Live Action Trailer
Conan Exiles. But, game development doesn’t really stop at launch day does it? Funcom’s weekly Conan Exiles newsletter reveals that the devs are still hard at work on improving the game and diligently taking care of any bugs and exploits that they find. “We’re one month (and then some) out from the full launch of Conan Exiles, but work on the game is not slowing down. There are still bugs to fix, exploits to remove and balancing and optimizations to implement, and since launch we’ve rolled out several hotfixes to improve various aspects of the game.” Unfortunately, there’s only so much the team can do. The dev team assures players, however, that they are aware of the problems and will be working on them once they’ve fixed more important issues. “Everything is getting its due diligence,” says the devs. “We may not be able to respond to everything we see, but we’re keeping track of bug reports and feedback from the … [Read more...] about Conan Exiles Devs Say That ‘Work On The Game Is Not Slowing Down’
