"I walk in a
land of desperation. A wasteland of the exiled and the outcast. Where the broken
strive to build and the weak are crushed while the strong survive."
These are the words of Conan the Barbarian as he strides across a desert
wasteland, skulls and bones crushing beneath is sandaled feet, in the brand new
cinematic trailer released today announcing Funcom's new game 'CONAN EXILES'.
Available on PC in Early Access this summer, with a full launch on both PC and
console to follow, 'CONAN EXILES' challenges players to survive, build and
dominate in the brutal world of the greatest fantasy hero of all time: Conan the
"There is no better setting for an open-world survival game than the world of
Conan," said Joel Bylos, creative director at Funcom. "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
'CONAN EXILES' is first and foremost a multiplayer game that can be enjoyed on
both private and public servers, but it will also feature a single-player mode.
You are an exile, one of thousands cast out to fend for themselves in a barbaric
wasteland swept in sandstorms and besieged by enemies on every side. Grow crops
or hunt animals for food. Harvest resources to build weapons and tools. Build a
shelter to survive. Ride across a vast world and explore alone, or band together
with other players to build entire settlements and fortified strongholds.
Unleash your fury in savage, fast-paced combat and execute bloody and
bone-crushing attacks that will see heads rolling and limbs flying. Fight other
players to dominate the exiled lands, and even call upon the wrath of the
heavens to aid you by sacrificing enemy players on the alters of the gods.
"What Funcom is doing with 'CONAN EXILES' is capturing the essence of Conan and
his world," said Fredrik Malmberg, CEO of Conan Properties. "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."
