Just because they aren’t known for wearing shirts doesn’t mean that barbarians mind a little cold now and then.
Rugged and bloodthirsty player fighters will be forging into new territory later this month, as Conan Exiles is planning to release The Frozen North for the survival sandbox. Funcom announced that the expansion is coming out on August 16th, the same day that the game will go live on Xbox One. And as a reminder, this particular expansion is free for all owners of the game.
The Frozen North will greatly expand the game’s territory by 70%, adding icy biomes, rain, and snow. Players will explore this land while fighting new enemies, making a best friend of the god Ymir, brewing up strong drinks, cooking tasty meals, and — most important to the barbarian culture — taking care of honeybees.
“The team has also worked extremely hard to make sure this release brings with it significant improvements to core aspects of the game such as combat, artificial intelligence, and more,” said Creative Director Joel Bylos.
Conan Exiles is planning a multi-platform release in Q1 2018.
