“There is no better setting for an open-world survival game than the world of Conan.”

Funcom has announced Conan Exiles, a new, upcoming open-world survival game where players will have to hunt, grow crops, build a shelter, and gather resources for making weapons and tools. Once strong enough, players can enter into battles against their enemies, with Funcom promising “savage, fast-paced combat” and “bloody and bone-crushing attacks that will see heads rolling and limbs flying.” There’s also some talk of sacrificing enemies on the altars of the gods.

While Conan Exiles is “first and foremost a multiplayer game that can be enjoyed on both private and public servers,” there will also be a solo mode.

“There is no better setting for an open-world survival game than the world of Conan,” said Joel Bylos, creative director at Funcom, in a press release. “Hyboria is a harsh and unforgiving land where only the strongest can survive while the weak are swiftly cut down. Whether it is hunting animals for food, fighting monsters and other players, or building entire settlements, we want to make sure players feel like they are really fighting to survive and prosper in the most brutal fantasy world ever.”

“What Funcom is doing with ‘Conan Exiles‘ is capturing the essence of Conan and his world,” said Fredrik Malmberg, CEO of Conan Properties, in a press release. “The fight for survival in Conan’s savage world has been chronicled in comics, movies, and novels, and now you too will get to experience the same struggle to achieve domination over the exiled lands.”

Conan Exiles is expected to enter PC early access this summer, with a full PC and console launch to follow. You can keep up to date on information on the game’s official website, here.
