Despite the previous Early Access announcement, the upcoming survival title Conan Exiles is headed to Early Access and Preview programs on PC and Xbox One next year. Many players will recognize the structure: open-world, multiplayer, crafting for items and buildings, combat, monsters, and franchise-unique aspects as well. The barbarian trade does fit survival game conventions pretty well – the world’s got a dark history to it, players can enslave enemy NPCs, and sacrifices to the gods can yield power and glory. What’s more is it’s possible to animate the giant avatar of a god to lay waste in your stead.
Catch the newest announcement trailer for Conan Exiles below. Conan Exiles is heading to Steam Early Access next year on January 31, and the Xbox Game Preview program next Spring.
