First Conan Exiles Dev Diary Introduces the Barbarian Himself

Funcom has revealed the first developer diary for their upcoming survival sandbox Conan game, Conan Exiles.

Featured above, the developer diary introduces Conan himself, as he plays a pivotal role in the beginning of the game in saving you from being crucified. The developers also promise there will be lots of decapitation and violence, regardless.

“In the game, when you hit somebody, you see you do damage. You see you leave a mark on the other player. You see heads coming off, you see arms coming off, you see blood, you see gore, you see dents in armor,” the video states. “These are the things we’re aiming for, this is what we want to achieve in the game.”

Here are some new screenshots for the game:

It’s worth pointing out that Conan Exiles will be playable entirely solo, or publicly with others on hosted multiplayer servers. You’ll be able to build your own settlements and strongholds, fight wars, and even sacrifice other players to the gods.

    I’m interested as long as the single player is decent. Problem I have with all these survival type games
    Is playing with assholes; after dealing with annoying people at work, not interested doing the same online at home.

    Looks good, but can I play as a Red Sonja type character?

    Exactly this, so many cool looking games like ARK that are way too focused on dicking over other people. It seems like it would not be too hard for all of them to just have a single player sandbox mode where values/damage/resources are adjusted accordingly to make the game playable.
