Soon gamers on Xbox One will themselves get to experience how it feels being thrown into a naked land and be forced to survive under the open sky. Funcom today announced that Conan Exiles, the open-world survival game that sold half a million copies during its first month on PC, will be crushing its way into Xbox Game Preview on August 16. The studio is also excited to announce that a free expansion update will launch on both PC and Xbox One on the same date. Today, Funcom released the first ever video from the expansion giving players a glimpse at the entirely new region of Conan’s world they will soon get to explore.
“By releasing the free expansion update on PC and Xbox One simultaneously with the Xbox Game Preview launch, we will provide players on both platforms with a new and fresh experience that expands the world of Conan Exiles by roughly 50% and comes complete with entirely new environments, monsters, buildings, game features, and more,” says Funcom Head of Games Lawrence Poe. “As the game is still in Early Access, everyone who has already bought or decides to buy the game while it’s still in development will get access to this massive update at no extra charge.”
The developer is also excited to share that it will be updating Conan Exiles for the Xbox One X at a later date, taking advantage of the system’s superior hardware power to bring the world of Conan the Barbarian to life in beautiful 4K resolution.
