Funcom’s Conan Exiles dev vlog illuminates PvE and PvP

In Funcom’s first dev diary for the upcoming Conan Exiles survival sandbox, Creative Director Joel Bylos introduces the setting and hook of the game.

“Survival in this universe means foraging for food, hunting creatures, fighting your enemies, and finding ways to defeat the elements,” he says.

Art Director Gavin Whelan notes that CE is “very much a player-built world” in which players will build their own empires across different types of environments, from deserts to tundra.

The video and new screenies are below.

On man! I drop by Massively to see if there is any Conan news and I struck gold !! :D. This concept looks awesome. If the art, motion quality, music and beauty are up to AoC standards count me in. A cool new Conan game, well rock my socks. Come on Funcom, you can do it. I have faith in you guys. Played AoC for a couple of years, so I know you can deliver.

I will buy this the second it’s released.  I love the IP and I loved many facets of AoC.  Funcom did such an awesome job with The Secret World spinoff this is a no brainer.

Does survival mean full loot in this context?

I don’t think it’s so hard of a question to answer really. At least in the case of AoC. Make tons of promises about what the game is going to be, then never make good on any of it, mostly in an effort that appeared to please too many people.
Of course I could be wrong, ESO has followed that same model and been praised to death for it.
Hoping for a better, I guess more niche, playstyle in Exiles.

any critique i make – objectively, dispassionate commentary – will sound like trolling. But its true, and why Funcom fails so miserably with their MMOs. Any PR robot is gonna read a program of “oh we are so happy with our small dedicated niche player base! What a success! Only a cultured gamer can appreciate our fine wine!” But you can be damn sure that behind the scenes they wracking their brains as yo why the fail so miserably with such good IPs.

Age of Conan has come so far off the rails from what it was originally intended to be, I don’t even blame them at this point.

Looks great, Ideas great, I am hyped – yet to see on the execution but i have faith and it can only be good for the existing games as they seem loyal and dedicated to both their games and their players from what I have seen.
