Conan Exiles is giving Conan himself a facelift – to make him look younger

Funcom’s latest Conan Exiles newsletter is short and sweet and a week behind, but there are still a few tidbits worth sharing, including an on-the-way Xbox One patch and a new content update for Steam players next week, the latter of which touches on “thrall inventories, new building pieces and repair kits.” In the meantime, the studio is working on new clothes, dynamic weather, and a new mug for Conan himself – because Crom forbid Conan look like some sort of old.

“The Art team has given Conan a facelift so he’ll look better during cinematics. With some digital botoxing, tucking and lifting, the hardened barbarian looks at least ten years younger.”

Also of note? New console editions. Conan Exiles will support the Xbox One X, and even better, the studio has a “mostly working” PS4 edition currently in QA. “We’ve partnered with a company called Testronics to test our games and they’ll put the game through the proverbial wringer for us,” Funcom writes. “Full launch across all platforms is scheduled for Q2, 2018.”

I always think of Conan to be similar to Aragorn, i.e. older than he looks, grim, weather-worn.

Not sure why they think he needs to look younger.

I’m just here for the thrall inventories.
Facelifts are cool and all but I need my minions to be more useful xD

Good to hear! When you’re toiling in the desert sun, battling exiles and punching hyenas it’s easy to overlook the importance of a proper skincare routine. I use a special blend of aloe, demon’s blood and imp piss to fight the signs of ageing and keep my skin looking fresh and radiant.

I don’t know, i’d say Conan looks pretty good for an almost 90 year old :)

His brother Cohen the Barbarian is doing ok too ;-)

The best things in life according to him are “hot water, good dentishtry and shoft lavatory paper”.
