Funcom announced that after 14 months of developing Conan Exiles under public scrutiny within the Early Access vassal, the company is ready to finally release the full version onto digital distribution networks and as a physical release for the Xbox One and PS4.
The game is scheduled to release on May 8th, 2018.
Conan Exiles won’t just be graduating from Early Access, though. According to Funcom CEO Rui Casais, the idea was to overhaul the game so it’s entirely new for players who are just getting a taste of Conan Exiles for the very first time and gamers who have been part of the Early Access run since last year, saying…
“Besides being the first time it’s available on PlayStation 4, the launch of Conan Exiles brings with it a massive expansion of the game world, game-changing new features such as monster invasions known as the purge and an entirely new action-oriented combat system, as well as many other major additions that truly makes this the ultimate vision of Conan Exiles. If you were ever on the fence, or you are just discovering it for the first time, May 8th is the time to join the adventure.”
Some of these “game-changing” features were put on display, along with the overhauled combat system, in a brand new trailer that was put out just ahead of the launch next month. You can check out the trailer below.
The trailer highlights the new combat system, which features more flashy combos and cool attacks that are reminiscent of Funcom’s Conan: The Hyborian Adventures, which actually had a really kick-butt combat system.
For the most part, Funcom made the third-person hack-and-slash mechanics look a lot more cinematic, similar to The Witcher 3.
The trailer also highlights some of the new gods featured in the game, some of the new enemies you’ll fight and some of the new biomes you’ll be able to visit.
Hilariously enough, the highlight of Conan Exiles was never really the gameplay functionality or the feature set. It was the boobs, butt, naked chicks and jiggly schlongs.
Console gamers won’t be able to experiencing the power of customizable, physics-based swinging dicks, but PC gamers have been enjoying all the naked bushes and hammock-free bananas dangling about and bouncing around like peach-colored snakes swinging from a tree during a breezy afternoon.
