The team behind Conan Exiles has been working hard over the past week, but a lot of that work has gone to the art team over the past week. Sure, it’s important that the vanguard team has been working on making sandstorms do damage to players while also fixing issues with NPC weapons, but the art team has been hard at work giving creatures more expressive telegraphs to work with the combat system.
And that isn’t all the art team is developing; creatures in the world need to feel more expressive in general, so they’re getting more idle animations and environmental interactions to boot. So you’ll see fewer critters just hanging out and more of them doing things that make sense for those animals.
There’s also work being done on the UI to make everything feel immersive, fun, and easy to understand at a glance. Check out the full newsletter to see all of the ways in which the team is working hard to make the game the best it can be.
