Funcom recently released a new trailer and additional information on the upcoming Conan Exiles survival game. Ruin Gaming played Age of Conan Hyborian Adventures actively at launch back in 2008. Age of Conan was ahead of its time in terms of graphics, features and catered to a more mature audience. Ruin focused on Battle Keep sieges and guild City creation, the sandbox content that allowed Age of Conan to stand out in the massive multiplayer genre. Unfortunately the technical requirements and ambitious scope of Conan ultimately served to undermine the experience.
Conan Exiles focuses on the sandbox survival gameplay.
The Conan universe offers a rich environment for players to enjoy, Ruin Gaming will continue to follow the progress of this promising franchise as it nears completion.
Your first steps in Conan’s world
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. – Funcom
