AMA 'Highlight Reel' Published - Camel Punching Included! -

Yesterday, Funcom's Joel Bylos and Jens Erik took part in a Reddit AMA all about Conan Exiles. The team has compiled the "highlight reel" from the event with some pretty tasty new information including such things as differences between CE and ARK, how deep the existing lore is embedded in the game, camel punching (yeah, it's a thing!), microtransactions, and more.

Here are a few tidbits:

  • biomes include desert, oasis, ruined cities, crystal springs
  • exploration of civilizations from the past is embedded
  • CE has a tight focus on melee combat, lore & stories are sprinkled throughout the world, a religion system leads to the use of magic, god avatars are real, thralls allow turning of enemies into allies, no flying mounts
  • server options and the thrall system will allow for more casual players to build and not worry about having all destroyed during out-of-game time
  • tools are being put in place as well as server option rulesets to deal with player harassment issues
  • CE is inspired by the work of Robert E Howard
  • players can create their own characters through a deeper system than most survival games - looks, religion, race and voice are confirmed options
  • camels are hardcore -- beware punching
  • weapon durability will play a part
  • darkness will have a significant effect on the world with different creatures spawning
  • no mounts at the start of EA though they will be added later. They will not be used as proxies in battle. Players are expected to participate in combat
