Today, Funcom announced that open world survival game Conan Exiles will launch for PC via Early Access on January 31st, and then on Xbox One Game Preview sometime in the spring. In celebration of this announcement, Funcom has also released a new trailer.

Never heard of Conan Exiles? Well then read this overview that accompanied the new trailer:

Conan Exiles is an open-world survival game set in the brutal lands of Conan the Barbarian!

You are an exile, outcast and downtrodden, sentenced to walk in a barbaric wasteland where the weak are crushed and only the strong can live. Here you must fight to survive, build, and dominate the world alone on your own server or with enemies and allies in online multiplayer.

Journey through a vast, seamless world filled with the ruins of ancient civilizations and uncover its dark history and buried secrets as you seek to conquer and dominate the exiled lands yourself. Start with nothing but your bare hands and forge the legacy of your clan, from simple tools and weapons to gigantic fortresses and entire cities. Enslave the bandits of the exiled lands to do your bidding by breaking them on the grueling Wheel of Pain. Sacrifice the beating hearts of your enemies on the blood-soiled altars of your god to seize true power and glory. Summon the colossal avatar of your god and see them lay waste to your enemies and their homes.

Just remember: in this brutal land of vengeful gods, bloodthirsty cannibals, and vicious monsters, survival is more than tracking down food and water. Explore mysterious ruins in search of treasure and knowledge, but beware the risk of your mind being corrupted by the dark forces of the world. Traverse vast sand dunes and seek shelter from scouring sandstorms sweeping across the burning sands. March into war against your enemies and unleash your savage fury in brutal combat. Go in unprepared and it will be your head rolling and limbs flying.

Conan Exiles is not an empty sandbox. It is a world rich in history where you must discover the knowledge and secrets of ancient civilizations as you struggle to build your own.

The new trailer shows footage taken from pre-early access on PC but the game still looks incredibly promising, and graphical pretty good, further cementing the game as one to watch as it launches into Early Access in 2017.

Conan Exiles is set to release for PS4, Xbox One, and PC at an unannounced date. You can check out the new trailer below:
