Players will soon be able to get their hands on Funcom's new open world survival game set in the Conan universe, Conan Exiles. In just under three months, the game will hit early access on Steam and players will be able to delve into the world of the famous barbarian.
The game will be available in 11 languages to start, “We want to make sure the game is available to as many people as possible from the very start of Early Access,” says Funcom CEO Rui Casais. “Releasing a game into Early Access means building a community of players around it that helps us as developers realize the full potential of the game. The more people we can include in that process, the better it will be for the game and for the players.”
Funcom also announced that they have partnered with Nvidia to implement their cutting-edge Ansel technology which will let players take breathtaking 360 degree screenshots of the game. These screenshots can even be viewed in VR with devices such as Vive, Oculus Rift, and mobile VR.
On describing what Conan Exiles is all about Funcom stated "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. Journey through a vast, seamless world filled with the ruins of ancient civilizations and uncover its dark history and buried secrets as you seek to conquer and dominate the exiled lands yourself..."
Funcom continued "You start with nothing but your bare hands and forge the legacy of your clan, from simple tools and weapons to gigantic fortresses and entire cities. Enslave the bandits of the exiled lands to do your bidding by breaking them on the grueling Wheel of Pain. Sacrifice the beating hearts of your enemies on the blood-soiled altars of your god to seize true power and glory. Summon the colossal avatar of your god and see them lay waste to your enemies and their homes." The game should be hitting early access in January of 2017.
