Conan Exiles is an open-world survival role-playing game being developed by Funcom, set in the brutal lands of Conan the Barbarian and based upon the writings of Robert E. Howard. The events in Conan Exiles take place on Conan’s timeline between the stories Xuthal of the Dusk (The Slithering Shadow) and A Witch Shall be Born.[2]

In January 2016, Funcom announced it is working on Conan Exiles, an open-world survival game based on the Conan the Barbarian brand. The game released on Steam PC Early Access on January 31, 2017 and launched on the Xbox One as part of the Game Preview program in August.

Conan Exiles is said to launch seperately on PS4 in Japan. This launch is the only mentioned to have a different name and a possibility of having two different launch dates[1], where Conan Outcasts' ETA is August 23, 2018 and Conan Exiles' ETA is Q3 2018.

Description[edit | edit source]

Short description[edit | edit source]

Conan Exiles is an open-world survival game set in the brutal lands of Conan the Barbarian. Here players must survive in a savage world, build their kingdom, and dominate their enemies in brutal combat and epic warfare. Conan Exiles can be experienced in both local single-player and in persistent online multiplayer.
~ Conan Exiles is Heading East - April 27, 2018

Long description[edit | edit source]

You are an Exile, one of thousands cast out to fend for yourself in a wasteland swept by terrible sandstorms and besieged on every side by Enemies. Here you must fight to survive, build and dominate.

Hungry, thirsty, and alone, your first battle is against the harsh environment. Grow crops or Hunt animals for food. Harvest Resources to build Weapons and Tools. Build a shelter to survive. Ride across a vast world and explore alone, or band together with other players to build entire Settlements and Strongholds to withstand fierce invasions.

When strong enough, march into battle and wage war against your enemies to dominate the Exiled Lands. Sacrifice enemy players on the altars of the gods and shift the balance of power your way. Unleash your fury in savage, fast-paced combat and execute bloody and bone-crushing attacks that will see heads rolling and limbs flying.

Survive. Build. Dominate. Play alone in single-player mode, or forge alliances and make enemies online on both public and private servers. Will you dominate the Exiled lands, or will your enemies sacrifice you on the altar of their god?

~ A look back and the way forward - Natascha, June 6, 2018

The only exception to this quote is The Frozen North, which was released earlier on.

The Frozen North[edit | edit source]

Far to the north, a vast new land has been discovered. A cold and rugged landscape where snow-capped mountains and dark, haunted forests stretch as far as the eye can see. Here, between the desperate howls of wolves and thundering footsteps of Frost Giants, the beating of kettle-drums can be heard as savage tribes of northmen worship Ymir, their Lord of Storm and War.

Now you must journey beyond the burning sands of the Exiled Lands and survive, build, and dominate in this cold new world full of danger and opportunity.''

~ Site description

The Frozen North is a free expansion update. It was published in the second stage of the Conan Exiles Early Access. Listed below are some of its features:

Imperial East Pack[edit | edit source]

As already mentioned this is a purely cosmetic DLC pack that won’t affect gameplay balance. You’re not buying power, just looks.
~ A look back and the way forward - Natascha, June 6, 2018

The Imperial East Pack is a payed, cosmetic only DLC. It released Friday June 22, 2018 on Steam, PS4 and Xbox One(as in-game purchase). This culture pack, inspired by the eastern land of Khitai in Hyboria, is made by the character and 3D artists, whom do not work on the main game.

It includes the following items:

  • 3 new armor sets – Khitan Mercenary Armor (Light), Khitan Officer Armor (Medium) and Khitan Imperial Armor (Heavy). These armor sets are available from level 10, with an epic version at level 60 (requires epic tier materials to craft)
  • 11 new weapons with Khitai themed visuals. These will be available as iron tier and starmetal tier visuals and will have appropriate stats for those levels (and require level appropriate materials to craft)
  • 25 new placeables in Khitan style. These include new carpets, tables, braziers, lanterns, chairs, screens, drums etc.
  • 5 new decorative warpaints in Khitan style.
  • A new set of Tier 3 building pieces in the Khitan style.

All of the above recipes become accessible through the Khitan Artisan station, which is available after purchasing the DLC.

Jewel of the West Pack[edit | edit source]

All the new content from Aquilonia is exclusive to this DLC. The new items do not give any in-game advantage in power, as all items have comparable stats to existing items.
~ [8]

Thr Jewel of the West Pack is a payed, cosmetic only DLC set to release in early August, 2018. It contains:

  • 39 new Aquilonian building pieces: A full set of building pieces with the same stats as existing tier three.
  • 15 new armor pieces in three sets, such as the Black Dragon armor: Light, medium and heavy sets with an epic end-game version of each.
  • 9 new weapons in one Aquilonian weapon set: Same power as iron weapons with an epic end-game version of each weapon.
  • 5 new Aquilonian warpaints: Decorative warpaints symbolizing, for example, rule and bravery.
  • 25 new placeables, such as the harp and councilor chair, craftable in the Aquilonian Artisan station.
