Gameplay Trailer for ‘Conan Exiles’ and Early Access Revealed
A brand new trailer for the upcoming Conan Exiles just hit the web. In addition, the open world game now has a date set for early access.
A new action packed gameplay trailer for Conan Exiles was just unveiled to the online public. The footage features an open world, first person perspective and allows the player use of weapons such as swords, shields and spears to fight off enemies. The trailer ends with a large statue-man picking a fight with a monstrously large snake. I’m guessing there’s missing context.
The video was released along side the early access release dates for Xbox One and PC. PCs will get the first crack at the game on January 31, 2017, while the Xbox One crowd will get it as part of its Game Preview program sometime later in the spring. No word yet on the PlayStation 4 release as it does not have early access.
Check out the trailer below.
Conan Exiles is based on the Conan stories by Robert E. Howard. It was set in the fictional “Hyborian Age”, where Conan’s numerous sword-and-sorcery adventures take place. The character was made popular by Arnold Schwarzenegger in the films Conan the Barbarian and Conan the Destroyer.
“The open-world survival genre is ripe for Conan’s conquest,” said Conan Exiles director Joel Bylos in a statement. “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.”
A release date for the full game has not been set but it’s not too crazy to expect it sometime in 2017.
What’s your opinion on the Conan franchise? Was the 2011 movie bad or just so-so?
