Conan Exiles, the survival-action game set in Robert E. Howard’s barbarian universe, will add jungle and volcano areas on its full release in May next year.
Revealed today as part of the game’s official launch unveiling, the volcano area will seemingly be added to the desert-set Exiled Lands that comprised the initial Early Access release back in January. Meanwhile, the jungle biome will be an entirely new area expected to be on a par with the ‘Frozen North’ expansion, which added a considerable portion of new land, along with different survival mechanics, religions, enemies, and weapons.
Additional details on the new mechanics included in the expansion will be released in the coming months, but the developers at Funcom are teasing a completely remade combat system, alongside the expected bug fixes and optimisations that are expected for the full release.
That final release is now scheduled for May 8, 2018 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Retail pre-orders for the title are now available, and the cost of the Game Preview version of Xbox Live has increased to USD$49.99 to reflect the retail pricing. However, those who purchase that version will receive instant access to all of the content currently available. The full release will mark the first time that the game is available on the PlayStation 4.
The full release has been delayed slightly from its originally anticipated Q1 release. Although Conan Exiles heavily features a multiplayer component, the title is fully playable as a single-player experience.
