    After 14 months of Early Access, the open-world survival game set in the brutal lands of Conan the Barbarian, Conan Exiles, will finally exile from Early Access and receives a launch date. A brand new trailer that captures how the new Conan Exiles will look and play on release was added today:

    In Conan Exiles, players must survive in a savage world, build their kingdom, and dominate their enemies in brutal combat and epic warfare. You start with nothing but your bare hands and forge the legacy of your clan, building anything from a small home to gigantic fortresses and entire cities. Wage war using swords, bows, siege weapons, and even take control of giant avatars of the gods and lay waste to enemy cities. Conan Exiles can be experienced in both local single-player and in persistent online multiplayer.

    Funcom has also released a blog post today detailing exactly what’s coming to the game at launch.

    “We wanted to make sure leaving Early Access is something more than just removing the Early Access label and saying we’re done,” says Funcom CEO Rui Casais. “Besides being the first time it’s available on PlayStation 4, the launch of Conan Exiles brings with it a massive expansion of the game world, game-changing new features such as monster invasions known as the purge and an entirely new action-oriented combat system, as well as many other major additions that truly makes this the ultimate vision of Conan Exiles. If you were ever on the fence, or you are just discovering it for the first time, May 8th is the time to join the adventure.”

    Conan Exiles is set for a May 8 release on PS4, Xbox One and PCs.

    I could maybe see Conan fans getting into this... Is there anything about this that would actually draw them in, though?

    the graphic is straight from PS2.

    i can see this game trying to be the master of all. but in reality master of none.

    I think it looks cool. Even if they just get that base building horde defense thing right, that looks like a lot of fun.

    EDIT: Looked at gameplay footage. It's a glitchfest. Nvm.

    Is it just me or does the video feel awkward because there seemed to be at least three different states of completion of the game in it? The awkward Polar Express CGI of the two people, the lazy unrealistic collapse of buildings and trees when they're destroyed where it's oddly shaped large chunks of walls and all the branches suddenly falling off as a tree topples, and then actually passable graphics during a few of the game play (but not more of them) scenes.

    Does anybody still play it? It seems like another Rust style crafting survival game and those tend to lose popularity prerrp quickly.
