If you have been patiently waiting for the launch of survival game Conan Exiles on Xbox One, mark your calendar now. The title’s developer Funcom has announced a release window for the game: Conan Exiles will come to the console in the third quarter of 2017 as part of the Xbox One Game Preview early access program.
Funcom revealed the release window in its fourth quarter financial report. The developer added that an additional Conan Exiles biome, which introduces different terrain, monsters, equipment and avatars will also roll out in Q3 2017.
The report also provides a glimpse of the updates set to arrive for Conan Exiles players, including up to four major game updates over the course of 2017 and small fixes for the early access title that will come every week or two.
Funcom originally planned to release the game’s early access in September 2016. However, the developer announced in June that the release would be delayed until 2017 to “make a better game.” The game takes its inspiration from the stories of Robert E. Howard. While a multiplayer title, the game lets you play alone as well. As described on Steam, the game requires you to:
Survive the barbaric wasteland
In the world of Conan the Barbarian, survival is more than being well-fed and hydrated. Here you must weather scouring sandstorms, save your mind from being corrupted and going insane, and fight vicious monsters from the darkest holes of the earth.
Build your legacy
Journey through a huge, seamless world filled with danger and opportunity, exploring everything from sand dunes to towering ruins. Harvest resources to craft tools and weapons, then build everything from a small settlement to entire cities.
Unearth ancient civilizations
Explore shadow-haunted ruins of ancient civilizations and discover great treasures and knowledge. Learn about the people who inhabited this world before and what led to their demise through inscriptions, wandering NPCs, and the environment itself.
Summon the power of the gods
Cut out the hearts of your enemies and sacrifice it upon the altars of your god to earn their blessing. Summon and take direct control of huge, towering avatars and wreak havoc on your enemies as you crush their homes and drive them from their lands.
Defend your territory
Enslave the criminals of the exiled lands and force them to join your cause and defend your territory. Put them through the grueling Wheel of Pain to break their will, then turn them into archers, crafters, entertainers, and more. Find rare thralls for the greatest rewards!
Conquer your enemies
March forth to war against your enemies, use explosives and see their fortifications crumble to dust, then unleash your savage fury with brutal attacks that will see heads rolling and limbs flying. Find or craft a wide range of weapons and armor.
