Funcom announced the release date of their upcoming open-world survival game, Conan Exiles. Gamers will be able to jump into this barbaric world come January...

Inspired by the Robert E. Howard stories, Exiles will have players try their luck at surviving in Conan’s world. The game goes beyond just forging for food and fighting enemies though. One can enslave their rivals to help maintain a fortress, summon avatars of a particular god to lay waste to a village, take over cities and all around dominate the exiled lands.

“The open-world survival genre is ripe for Conan’s conquest,” says Game Director Joel Bylos. “If there ever was a world that can truly test your strength and skill, it is the brutal and savage world of Conan the Barbarian. ‘Conan Exiles’ is not just an empty sandbox, it is a world rich in history where you must discover the secrets of ancient civilizations as you struggle to build your own.”

Conan Exiles will be playable on private and public servers, allowing players to play solo or with others respectively. The game will launch in Early Access on January 31st 2017. Funcom also revealed that come spring, Exiles will also land on the Xbox One Game Preview program. We’ll of course continue to follow its development, keeping you updated as things progress!
