Conan Exiles - Crush Your Enemies, See them driven before you!

Pages

So it is possible that my search skills are failing me, but I am not finding a thread on this game. The game is an open world survival game, seems in the same vein as Ark. You will be able to play locally, on private servers or on public servers. The game looks surprisingly good.

Here is a gameplay trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tGiK...

Early access for PC is coming at the end of January, early access for XBox One is sometime this spring.

Here is the official website: http://www.conanexiles.com

Curious to know if there is much interest in this, I am cautiously watching this one, after being burned by Age of Conan.

I loved the world they created in Age of Conan and am now interested. I guess for me it would have to depend on if we could get a private GWJ server going, because the last thing I want to deal with are HZ1 style trolls.

I know we had a private server for Ark, so we may be able to get one for this. I will definitely give it a try come January 31st.

I was interested too, until I saw some screenshots of combat, where woman and men were hacked in half for the lols I'm sure.

Its a shame, because they handled violence pretty great in their previous games.

You and I remember Age of Conan very differently.

You know, you may actually be right about that. Huh... I guess I just got older!

Apologies for my "old man yells at the clouds" post!

I'll be grabbing a copy. Age of Conan is still one of my all time favorite MMOs.

from what i've seen there will be private servers, initially capped at 70 people.

Interesting, so I have to get me some black slaves to fight for me (after I break their will on the wheel of pain), and some women slaves to dance for me. Some questionable design decisions there...

And after all that, some griefer guild can come along and summon an unstoppable thing that just destroys and demolishes all I've built and acquired over a long time.

It seems they are targeting a certain demographic of players. The kind of players that I'm not sure I want to be exposed to, unless I can play in a walled off garden that is highly policed.

If I can have a private server that only I and maybe one other person play co-op on? I'll probably be in. I've put tons of hours into games like 7 Days to Die where I have the option of keeping everyone else out, turning PvP off, and only going PvE with other people.

Man I was so interested up until the slavery parts. Calling them "Thralls" is a weak ass hand wave.

The streams I've watched look pretty rough. So it might be a good idea to watch some youtubers or streamers when the early access launches at the end of the month and make a judgement call based on that.

As for the thrall thing, is it always dark skinned npcs? Cause if so that's pretty rough.

I don't recall how it is being done but I do believe they have a (online logged in) single player mode.
I keep looking at this and wondering how it is a Conan game other than in name only?

In the books they were all races and sexes.

Are we seriously comparing Hyboria to our When?

Bought the Barbarian edition, I loved Age of Conan, even with all the rough parts.

It has a penis slider in the character creation screen.

This game is on the way to crash and burn town.

AoC had the same thing and it did ok

I played a bit last night. Strange, undulating penis confirmed.

Really odd control scheme by default but you get used to it fairly quick. This is definitely a survival game with lots of Conan-style monsters hanging around like they're Everquest mobs. You start naked, so the usual 'build a pick axe and start swinging' rules apply.

I did run into one NPC who actually talked to me, didn't have much to say so I killed him. I wanted his pants but I couldn't loot them. Saw a dead NPC on the ground with a perfectly good set of leather armor on. Couldn't loot him. That feels ... annoying.

Seems like they're aiming really hard for that Rust-style of game. I'm not immersed in the genre deep enough to know how well they'll pull it off yet. So far I've been running away from things and hammering on 'E' picking up plants for their fiber so I can get some essentials like PANTS. It took about 20 minutes to gather enough stone to build a little hut. At that point I really wondered what exactly the game was going to have on offer once you get your essentials sorted.

If there's a bunch of adventure to be had, needing to go through hours of gathering and leveling up first will be kind of a barrier to entry if you're not into that aspect of the genre.

Thanks for the initial feedback. Are you guys doing PvE or PvP servers?

I tried to join some public servers pvp and pve and it crashed each time. Just did the solo session.

Part of what kept me playing Ark for so long was... essentially collecting dinosaurs.

I haven't seen much footage of this yet, bu what is there aside from initial resource gathering? From a non-PvP point of view that is...

The Devs should either make the second half of the slider only available through DLC, or make the game pay what you want, where slider length is tied to how much you paid for the game.

No no no, they should implement a system where the more you help people and the nicer you are, the bigger it is. A sort of feedback review system for other users, that impacts then.. uh... size. It's the perfect anti-toxic player system.

Not being able to take the clothes from NPCs is pretty irksome. You can fully loot other players when you kill them so why not the NPCs?

Best I can tell there is going to be a big PVP focus on this game because all you can do solo or pve is build up your base and then capture people and turn them into slaves to then defend that base.

Has anyone attacked an NPC camp yet? The AI seemed rock stupid in the stream so I'm wondering if they've fixed that yet. It's pretty much the main thing keeping me from getting it.

How's the combat feel?

Age of Conan was the best time I've ever had game. Well the first week anyway!

Where the hell is Wired anyway?

What a time to be alive.

I showed the penis videos of this game to my wife, and she immediately sent it out to her friends as a goof. They don't think much of this game's player base, to put it mildly.

Neither does the developer of this game.

So is anyone going to make a server and/or a clan?
