Conan Exiles shows off its plans for further development

Conan Exiles has weathered its first major milestone of reaching proper launch without exploding or melting down too much. Now it’s time for Funcom to look forward to later content, and that’s exactly what the latest post on the official site is all about. Technical updates and bug fixes are obviously going to continue, but the developers are also hard at work at bringing in pets and taming mechanics as well as a new dungeon.

Plans are also moving for new in-game religions, archery improvements, animation fixes, and new automatic downloads of mods as a quality-of-life feature. There’s also a new Far East-themed DLC planned for sometime in June, with three new armor set appearances, 11 new weapons, 25 new placeable objects, and a new set of Tier 3 building pieces. The post is quick to point out that the teams working on this DLC aren’t taking time away from the base game to add this, so buying it or not shouldn’t impact the overall future plans for the game.

If you’re curious about the state of the game right now, you can check out Andrew’s most recent glance at the title.

reaching proper launch without exploding or melting down too much.

Hmm, since I visit the SWL forums, I also get to watch what’s going on in the CE section and the amount of daily “I lost all my stuff”, “my house is gone” and “my server vanished” threads there is staggering.

(chuckle) Still adapting old content they’ve already made in Age of Conan to Conan Exiles. I’ve been waiting for this announcement, since they’ve got the Khitai stuff already in AoC. Basically they’re doing the same thing that they did with The Secret World to Secret World Legends.

Funcom has proven without a doubt that it knows how to maximize old content for profit. No one does it better. :/

Until the success of Conan Exiles, I don’t think that they’ve been able to afford new content for years.
