Funcom released the following trailer today for its upcoming Conan based MMO. According to the trailer, it will come to Steam Early Access in January and Xbox One Preview in Spring.
A little more detail was provided by Funcom. Have a read:
In a survival game you start out with virtually nothing and need to scrounge for resources, weapons and gear in order to survive for as long as possible. The genre’s been around for about 20 years, but really became popular thanks to Minecraft, DayZ, Ark: Survival Evolved and Rust, just to name a few. In addition to killing animals and gathering resources a lot of survival games also require you to consume food to regain health and stamina, as well as craft tools, weapons and building materials to make rudimentary shelters.
Conan Exiles follows in the same gameplay tradition. You start out with nothing, an exile cast out into a sweltering desert, the hot sun beating down on you from above. From here you make your way into the Exiled Lands, to survive, build and dominate your way to victory. Craft tools, find weapons, defeat your enemies and build whole cities if you wish.
It’s always difficult to gauge the quality of a game, nevermind an open world game, from a debut trailer. While it looks promising, we’ll reserve our thoughts until we can get our hands on it. Luckily, that won’t be long!
