Conan the Barbarian has finally landed on the Xbox One as Funcom’s hit open-world survival game Conan Exiles made its debut on the platform as part of the Xbox Game Preview program.
The Xbox One edition of Conan Exiles is identical to the PC version and benefits from over six months of Early Access –during which the developers added a wealth of new content, features, and improvements. Funcom also launched The Frozen North, a free expansion update for both PC and Xbox One, that increases the size of the world by 70% and takes Conan Exiles from the desert into the snowy highlands.
Funcom’s Head of Games, Lawrence Poe, spoke about the Xbox One release, saying:
“Today’s launch on Xbox One and the release of The Frozen North expansion updates is an important milestone on the game’s Early Access roadmap. During the first six months of Early Access on PC our focus has been to work with our core community eliminating exploits, improving core systems, and fleshing out both content and features.”
Conan Exiles is planned to leave Early Access and see full launch on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 in Q1 2018. While the team has been able to expand and improve the game significantly the first six months of Early Access, there are several months left and the team will continue to work side-by-side with the community to realize the game’s full potential.
Mr. Poe also commented on the Early Access campaign:
“In this phase two of Early Access the game is bigger and better than ever and we are very excited about bringing the game to an entirely new audience on Xbox One.”
The game is available on Xbox One at a price point of $34.99, and can be purchased in 39 countries with pricing customized across various currencies. The price point will increase once Conan Exiles leaves Game Preview on Xbox One and Early Access on PC and launches in full in Q1 2018.
