  • First Blood

    The new jungles of Conan Exiles called to US Army veteran Red Thomas, and he disappeared into them. When the editors attempted to contact him, they found Red near Xalthar’s Crossing standing amidst the dismembered bodies of his slain enemies. His only words were, “They drew first blood, not me! They drew first blood…”

  • Launch Day Impressions

    The tales of Conan the Barbarian have epitomized the essence of survival in the most brutal of environments. It’s only fitting that the land of Hyboria is adapted to a survival title. It’s only right that fans of the Barbarian have their opportunity to carve out their own fortunes and answer for themselves, “What is best in life?” This is our Conan Exiles preview impressions.

  • A Hyborian Launch is Coming

    On May 8th, Conan Exiles will launch on PC, PS4, and XBOX One. That’s right, something that went into Early Access on Steam is coming out of Early Access and actually launching just about a year later. Praise be to Crom! And when it comes, Conan Exiles is coming with a ton of new content, improvements, freeform climbing, new progression systems, a brand new combat system, new biomes, new dungeons, the new purge system.

  • The Frozen North is a Great Expansion to the Game

    Robert E. Howard captured an amazing world with Hyboria. Conan was the main character, but the backdrop of the world he lived in, really breathed along with him. In Conan Exiles the team at Funcom picked up that breath and turned it to frost. The Frozen North is a fantastic expansion to Exiles and one that continues to capture Howard’s vision. Here is a breakdown of what to expect and how the game plays.

  • Which Fantasy Sandbox Game?

    This past week we were introduced to Citadel: Forged in Fire. The game heralds a survival style game with wizards, melee, spells, and dragons. It is a solid entry into the genre that has been around for a while and done extremely well among MMO fans. There are other in the genre that have also done very well. Conan Exiles has been fantastic for Funcom and yet still more may be on the way.

  • Five Reasons Why MMOs Are Making a Comeback

    Many game industry people continue to talk about how MMOs have come and gone. However, we continue to see major events which point to the opposite. Players are seeking more online experiences through console and mobile gameplay. As many in the industry predicted early on, eventually every game will move into the online space. Sure, plenty of RPGs or fighting games might keep off the intrawebs, but as trends continue, there will be plenty of MMOs coming over the next few years.

  • PAX East 2017 - Survival Tips & the Plan Ahead

    This week at PAX East we got the chance to catch up with the Conan Exiles team. It is great to see the Conan franchise back in video games and Funcom has done a solid job combining survival elements into the open world format. Rough and brutal as always, the game pulls no punches. We spoke with Oscar Lopez Lacalle about the state of the game and some upcoming changes. He also shared some survival tips with us, if you are like me, your first few runs did not go very far.

  • The Most Wanted MMOs of 2017

    2016 was a rough year. The long-standing MMOs we’ve come to love carried along quite well, but for new titles the selection was pretty limited. And so, as we’re fond to do at year’s end, we look forward to 2017 and the titles we expect to launch (even if in early access, which we pretty much consider launched but ‘half-baked’). Here’s to the next twelve months and the many hours of gaming goodness we hope it brings.

  • 5 Things We Expect from Conan Exiles Early Access

    There are still some questions about how the Hyborian Age will fit into the survival game genre. In many ways Conan is the perfect fit, harsh and brutal just like the stories, Conan’s mythos lends itself to a very hardcore crowd. That audience is perfect for the survival genre and vice versa, survival fans may be in for a treat with a tough fantasy take on the genre which has been embedded in the zombie zone for years now. So, with that here are the Top 5 hopes we have for Conan Exiles.
