The Stream Team: Conan Exiles slayed the early access beast and launched!

It has happened! While some games can never escape the grasp of the early access beast, the mighty Conan Exiles has strangled this beast and left its broken corpse laying by the side of the road. Yes, the survival sandbox has officially launched! That means there are massive new biomes to explore, purges to withstand, and much more. Massively OP’s MJ is excited to get back in and start over on her newly wiped server. Tune in live at 8:00 p.m. to explore with us (and see how long she can go before the Death Counter feeds!).

What: Conan Exiles
Who: MJ Guthrie
When: 8:00 p.m. EDT on Tuesday, May 8th, 2018

The show is over now, but we’ve embedded it here just for you. Don’t forget to check out past streams and playlists posted to our videos collection!

Congrats to Funcom on the release! It’s not my thing, but it seems to be quite popular, so good for them.

Great to hear. It’s nice to see a game actually ‘ship’ rather than languish in perpetual early access. Anyway, if I understand it correctly, it is not an mmo but rather a shared persistent world RPG. That said, I would be interested in trying it if I could find a server with a sufficiently large population. Would this be easy to do? Also, what is the max population size per server, like 100 or so?

It is just about settled then. Will most likely purchase today, but as a precaution I think I would be wise to find a good FAQ or “Things I wish I knew before playing Conan: Exiles” type article first.

If I do purchase it, it will be the second game recommended by Massively that I have spent money on, the first being Secret World Legends which I mostly liked and may return to at some point.

BTW, as an aside, I tried Age of Conan a few years ago and loved my player avatar and the tutorial was loads of fun, but found myself totally lost after the tutorial. Not sure what happened there???

It seems like 40 is the max.

Cool. Maybe a bit less than I had hoped for, but on the other hand probably about the population size of the Secret World Legends maps, which would be fine with me. :D

Yeah there are many packed servers. The game in its current state is quite good and healthy. Yesterday evening it approached 30k players on Steam.

Cool beans. I’ve been going back and forth between STO and GW2 for a long time now, and there is definitely room for a third game with me. I’m hoping that maybe Exiles is it. :D
