Conan Exiles for PC, PS4 and XONE is an open-world action-RPG focusing on survival-related aspects and developed by FunCom. The team is known mainly for the well-received Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures, but they also created such acclaimed titles as Anarchy Online or The Longest Journey.


Conan Exiles is set in the fictional universe of Conan the Barbarian. The player assumes the role of an outcast who traverses dangerous wastelands. Although the plot is merely an excuse for the game's complex mechanics, the player gradually gets acquainted with the rich history of this world, which has remained hidden inside ancient ruins. Prehistoric civilizations left their marks here in the form of books, but also different inscriptions describing various events from the past.


Conan Exiles for PC, PS4 and XONE features both first and third-person perspective. The player explores a diverse world of an open structure, thus the adventure leads through savannas, deserts, cavernous canyons, picturesque valleys, or the aforementioned ruins. Survival-related aspects constitute the backbone of the experience although the player begins without any tools, they soon begin to craft their first, simplistic items and weapons. The game's complex crafting system allows the player to create useful items, as well as more and more deadly weapons, but apart from that, one is capable of constructing buildings, which can in turn become parts of large towns or fortresses. Through conquest and enslavement, the player gains different kinds of subordinates, such as warriors, archers or artists.

The world of Conan Exiles is not a safe place. Different threats are made up here of unpredictable weather conditions (above all, sand storms), aggressive fauna, and human hostiles: various bandits and the titular exiles those of the latter kind are worth taking alive, because their hearts can be sacrificed at the altars of gods. The in-game deities can decide to bestow a gift upon the player-controlled character (in the form of a unique ability), which oftentimes influences the course of a fight to a large extent. Combat is real-time here and the player makes use of melee weapons (spears, swords), ranged (bows) and the player-controlled exile's unique abilities. Both the physical and mental states of the protagonist are reflected in the actual gameplay the player needs to be taking care about their character's health, but also their level of sanity, because exploring mysterious ruins with unknown, dark forces residing in-there, can drive the protagonist insane.

Game modes

Conan Exiles for PC, PS4 and XONE can be played solo or among others. The player can choose a public server to play in, but they can also set up their own, on the basis of the pre-selected rules and options.

Technical aspects

Conan Exiles for PC, PS4 and XONE offers high-quality, three-dimensional visuals. What stands out here, is mainly the game's destructible environment created with care for detail, as well as complex character and creature models. The experience is complemented by the atmospheric soundtrack.
