Conan Exiles Trailer

Funcom offers a new video from Conan Exiles, their open world survival game that's launching in early access on January 31st. If this is your thing, then you may also want to tune in to Funcom's Twitch channel today at 1:00 pm EST for a livestream where creative director Joel Bylos and community manager Jens Erik Vaaler will demonstrate advanced building and crafting from the game. Here's word:

In a brand new video released today, developers give a unique glimpse into the building, the crafting, and the many different ways players can destroy their enemies’ settlements in ‘Conan Exiles’.

“They say that home is where your heart is, but in ‘Conan Exiles’ home is where you keep the hearts of your enemies,” says Joel Bylos, Creative Director at Funcom. “Building is a big part of ‘Conan Exiles’ and you will need to build smart and build strong in order to defend yourself from the environment, cannibals, monsters, and of course enemy players. We are working hard to make sure players have powerful tools to build and defend their kingdoms.”

In the new video released today, Joel Bylos and Lead Designer Oscar Lopez Lacalle talk about how players can build on mountainsides using a very flexible building system, and how you and your enemies will be able to summon giant avatars of the gods that can wreak havoc and destruction on anything made by players. They highlight the fact that ‘Conan Exiles’ is anything but an empty sandbox: here players will discover remnants of ancient civilizations, and they must build on top of and in between the dilapidated ruins of vast, forgotten cities.

Well it depends on what type of server or friends you have. For me I'll run my own (assuming it has a dedicated server option)with only those invited.

Are you trolling or just stupid?

I don't know, this game looks like it's 7 years too late or 7 years too old.

For survival games this is near the tops in looks imo.

Host your own server and invite others to join you in a world where you have full control of the rules and settings.

Reading comprehension FTW!

    Doesn't the next sentence he quoted say, "Host your own server and invite others to join you in a world where you have full control of the rules and settings"?

    That was always my secondary beef with Funcom, other than lying, but those guys are long gone. Is that they were adamant with trying to make a AAA mmo all the time and it seemed they didn't really have the horses for that. But bring it down a notch or two to a SP or game like this, it seems like they could shine there as they have more skill than your standard indy team learning as they go.

    I was hoping H1 was going to be that AAA take on the Survival Genre, but that came out indy feeling as well. So if anyone can really delivery a AAA survival game, dedicated server, world building, along with a good AI PvE antagonist and a bit-o story, I think the gaming world in general is awaiting that, coming from the opposite other end to meet in the same place would be like making skyrim/f4 coop. All the other indy offerings still seem like two years out to have all those makings, with indy style gfx's, not AAA.

    Isn't there another AAA survival game in the works? Perhaps by Epic or someone like that? Edit: Fortnight. Also State of Decay 2, should be final at release and be killer in coop.

    Promising. The visuals look good but the animations look limited/clunky. I expect a rough EA launch with regards to playability. Hope I'm wrong.

    Thanks Cutter for the server hosting info. Good to know!

    PLAY TOGETHER OR ALONE

    Play alone locally, or fight for survival and dominance in persistent multiplayer on public servers. Host your own server and invite others to join you in a world where you have full control of the rules and settings.

    Well if you can build cliff dwellings that pretty much negates the giant avatar doesn't it?

    i imagine it will quickly become a griefer paradise like all the other online survival games with persistence... they are supposed to have ways you can set up defenses while you are offline, but im skeptical to say the least how effective that will be

    also the roving gangs usually dominate everything very quickly based on numbers and consecutive hours online

    Well it depends on what type of server or friends you have. For me I'll run my own (assuming it has a dedicated server option)with only those invited. Yeah I need to do some more research. I'm assuming this is their survival game, like H1, 7D, Emp, Ark etc and not a std mmo in any way.
