EDGE - - GAMES -

There’s an Elder Scrolls vibe to Co­nan Ex­iles, but Fun­com’s lat­est is more than sim­ply Skyrim: Bar­bar­ian Edi­tion. As an ex­ile in the sav­age land of Hy­bo­ria you’ll make build­ings, then en­tire set­tle­ments, van­quish­ing foes and sac­ri­fic­ing them to the gods to fur­ther grow your power. Playable in sin­gle­player or on­line, Co­nan Ex­iles will be in Steam Early Ac­cess by the time you read this, and is also set for Xbox Game Pre­view. Fun­com’s record may have wob­bled in re­cent times, but the early-ac­cess ap­proach could do wonders for a game drip­ping with po­ten­tial. That Ja­son And The Arg­onauts is among its in­flu­ences is only a good sign, too.
