Funcom’s Conan Exiles has been in early access for quite a while on PC, and it entered the Xbox Game Preview this summer. At last, we know when the game will get a full release and will land on PS4 as well.
The game will be released both digitally and physically for Xbox One, PS4, and PC (yes, a physical release on PC. They exist) on May 8th, 2018.
We also get full release pricing information, with the PC version retailing at $39.99, while the console versions will be priced at $49.99. While for Xbox One the price is the same as its game preview version, the early access version on PC costs $29.99, so it might be a good idea to grab it before the game officially launches, if you’re interested.
Anyone who gets the game digitally before launch on PC and Xbox One will receive a Conan’s Royal Armor bonus item. Digital pre-orders will become available on PS4 down the line, and they will also include the armor.
On top of this, a physical Collector’s Edition will be available in partnership with Koch Media for all platforms, alongside a Day One Edition.
The Day One Edition will include a printed map of the Exiled Lands and the Conan’s Atlantean Sword in-game item. The Collector’s Edition is pretty massive and comes with the following:
- FIGURINE: 15 cm / 6 inch Conan the Barbarian polyresin figurine, modeled after Conan from the Conan Exiles cinematic trailer
- CUSTOM COMIC BOOK: Full-color print comic book created in collaboration with Dark Horse Comics specifically for this game. The comic book tells the story of Conan on one of his adventures in the Exiled Lands.
- SOUNDTRACKS: Three soundtracks featuring the music from Conan Exiles as well as the music from Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures and Age of Conan: Rise of the Godslayer.
- ARTBOOK: Go behind the scenes and discover some of the incredible production artworks developers used to guide their vision for the game in this full-color, print artbook.
- WORLD MAP: Full-color printed map of the world of Conan Exiles.
- DIGITAL COMIC BOOKS: Code to unlock six full-color digital comic books from Dark Horse Comics, featuring the entire “A Witch Shall Be Born” story arc.
- DIGITAL RPG BOOK: Code to unlock the 368 full-color digital rule book created by Modiphius for their Conan pen and paper role-playing game. Everything you need to play!
On top of the announcement, we also get a trailer and screenshots that also provide a glimpse to the new jungle and volcano biomes, that will be added to the desert and frozen north biomes that are currently in the game, adding further variety to the map.
We also get a comment from Creative Director Joel Bylos:
“Early Access and Game Preview has been an absolutely invaluable tool for us in developing Conan Exiles. Being able to get direct feedback from players has allowed us to focus our work on improvements, bug fixes, and new content. We still have a few months to go and are by no means done squashing bugs and making improvements. We’re working hard on new content and gameplay mechanics – including the new jungle and volcano biomes!”
