Developer/ publisher Funcom Format PC, Xbox One Origin Norway Release 2017
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.
