Conan Exiles Video; Livestream Today

Funcom is planning a livestream today on PvP support in Conan Exiles. This tweet says thing will get underway at 1:00 on EST on Twitch. The developer also offers a new video from Conan Exiles, showing off more their upcoming barbaric survival game. The game's tagline is "survive, build, dominate," and they follow on their survive and build videos with dominate trailer. Grab your ball-gag, as they also offer this developer blog with more details on the whole domination theme. How can someone "see their own head rolling away from them?" We don't know either, but according to Funcom, the game will allow us to find out:
Combat is a key aspect of Conan Exiles and players will engage in brutal battles using anything from swords to warhammers and longbows. A violent fatality system ensures that they can slice each other in half or even see their own head rolling away from them in what is a savage and bloody combat system true to the spirit of the world’s most famous barbarian. To dominate the Exiled Lands, players will also have to build cities and fortresses to claim land, and they must go out and capture thralls to help them defend their settlements or create special weapons and armor. To truly dominate Conan’s world, they must also build altars to their god and bring them sacrifices to appease them. If they earn the blessings of their god, players will ultimately get to summon and take direct control of huge, towering avatars of the gods that can roam the world and crush both bodies and buildings under their weight. There will be several countermeasures against avatars and players can also choose to run and play on servers without avatars if they want to.

I will probably pick this up when it gets to EA on 31Jan. It will probably disappoint me like AoC did but I will give it a chance.

I don't know, so it's going to be focused on dragging corpses back to your altar to enable you to assume the avatar of your chosen deity to stomp around with? Meh.

I guess it will really come down to how well the melee combat is done; if it's more towards the MMO style with 10 bazillion hotbuttons with cooldowns and such I may just pass...

I thought the combat in Age of Conan was good but the game was not fleshed out beyond the starter area. Once you started venturing further out it was clear it was not ready for release. I beta tested for a couple months and then played the free month but shut it down after that because I wanted them to finish developing the game before charging a monthly subscription for it. I never went back for more than a couple weeks.

This looks a lot like AoC and if it has the same style of combat it will be fun. Not sure I like the giant avatars... the gods but everything else sounds interesting enough to check out. Only thing I am wondering is why they have not put a price on it yet?

they say $30 in the live stream

looks like it could be cool for private servers... but online will be a monster clusterfuck of epic proportions, like the rest

btw its definitely living up to the "early access" status... looks like pre-alpha at best

no its twitch-action focused on timing, sorta like dark souls-ish kinda thing

but again, its super wonky atm.. when everything is working correctly it doesnt look too bad, but that seems to be a rare occurence right now

Geez, the live stream makes the combat look bad... like indi early access bad.

Guess they never learn.

I will probably still pick it up then as I enjoy that type of combat if they can pull it off. Even if it is a work in progress (which to be fair is reasonable to assume for an early access title). As I recall they were shooting for something similar for AoC in the beginning.

Also, apologies to everyone for the call of Cthulhu Trailer titles here. Not sure if my LastPass is form filling that or maybe I'm just subliminally trying to spread evil everywhere...
