Conan Exiles has undergone a lot of changes over the course of its Early Access period and a lot of new things are coming just in time for launch on May 8th. To show off what players can expect, Funcom has released a brand new trailer called "Countdown to 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.”
Players can look for new and improved features such as:
- combat retooled from the ground up with new attacks, effects and weapons
- volcano and swamp biome
- the Purge mechanic
- perks, gear and warpaint
- farming, derketo, fast travel and "content rebalance"
