Conan Exiles reveals the big one: a release date

Conan Exiles – the topless and, um, bottomless barbarian survival game by Funcom – will now launch a little later than expected on 8th May 2018. That’s on all three formats: PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. We had expected it in the first quarter.

I stress the PS4 release because it’s the only platform the game is not currently playable on. Conan Exiles is currently on Steam Early Access and the Xbox Game Preview programme, but there is no equivalent service on PS4.

For launch, the price will increase. On PC the game will rise $10 to $39.99, but not until 8th May. On Xbox One, however, the console launch price of $49.99 will come into effect this week.

The change in price reflects the change in the game. When Conan Exiles first launched on PC, at the beginning of 2017, it had one biome and only basic systems, and much has improved since then. Not only have there been polish and systemic improvements but also a whole new frozen biome, new dungeons, siege weapons and a climbing system added. And there will be even more at launch – a volcano area and jungle biome along with an overhauled combat system and other gameplay mechanics.
