Conan Exiles goes on sale for 20% off, recaps its update progress so far

It’s been a whirlwind spring for Conan Exiles, with the survival sandbox racking up hundreds of thousands of sales while pumping out updates left and right. Funcom would apparently like more sales as it’s beginning its first sale event starting today:

“Funcom is excited to announce that the studio has just kicked off its first ever discount sale for Conan Exiles. Gamers can now get the Standard Edition at 20% off and the Barbarian Edition at 10% off through Steam, Green Man Gaming, and other online stores. The Steam Midweek Madness Sale runs until April 14th.”

While the devs have slowed down the updates from a semi-daily to a weekly cadence, the team has made a lot of progress so far with the early access title. In a new dev blog, the team takes a moment to recap some of the major systems and features that it has added to Conan Exiles since its early access launch. These include in part the new Dregs dungeon, a dyeing system, the trebuchet siege engine, more gear, the ruin system, additional server settings, balance passes, and a bounty system for players to target and rat on exploiters.

The studio noted that players are also picking up some of the development slack, thanks to the game’s mod scene. “With the introduction of the Conan Exiles Dev kit, anyone can make mods for our game, and in quite a short time we have seen lots of great and helpful mods. Use the Unreal 4 engine to make cool new content for Conan Exiles and share it with the whole community. A very cool mod called HomeBrew caught our eye recently. It introduces features like farming, brewing and baking with lots of new recipes and resources.”

I want to try the game, but i don’t feel like forking out (discounted) money for a potentially unfinished game. Can somebody who’s spent decent amount of time in the game tell me if it’s worth it?

I haven’t played for about a month now, but I do have over 500 hours in the game. If you don’t want to pay for a game that still needs quite a bit of work to get up to par then you should definitely wait.

It’s not absolutely horrible or anything currently but most of the hyped features aren’t in the game yet. There is also a serious problem with exploiters and hackers, particularly on public servers but even on the more popular private servers.

I don’t know, after how out of touch Funcom has seemed recently… I don’t think I trust their games. Hope those that like this get their money’s worth, but right now my bet is against Funcom.

In the end it’s the NPC AI sandboxing that will make or break this game for me everything else is just icing.

“Oh God why is everyone quitting lets put out this survey.”
“They’re all quitting because of the bugs, exploits and hacks we can’t or won’t fix…”
“Quick throw the game on sale!”

Who let them do this?

Despite Funcom’s new commitment toward profit, This just goes opposite. I’m waiting to buy CE because I seriously doubt FC will stay on course.

Steam is 50% for me thanks to regional pricing.
