Conan Exiles has officially launched with 1M copies sold to date and a huge day-one patch

    
22

Funcom’s survivalbox Conan Exiles has officially shed early access and entered final launch as of today – that’s on PC, PS4, and Xbox One – having sold a reported one million copies in the lead up to release. More servers are apparently on the way now to handle the load!

You may have thought that last month’s patch – with the combat revamp and fast travel – was the big show, but you’d be wrong. In fact, there’s a huge download for the day-one patch (and patch notes) waiting for you no matter your platform. As our hands-on already previewed, players can expect the massive map update (yep, with the volcano and swamp biomes) and new Derketo religion, plus tweaks for the Purge, the healing rebalance, and too many bug fixes to count.

Here’s abbreviated look at our best coverage to date:

And here’s the official launch trailer:

And of course there’s an infographic, courtesy of a Joel Bylos-penned developer welcome:

We’ll be streaming the game once again tonight at 8 p.m. EDT on OPTV, so stay tuned!

Neato. Survival games still aren’t really my bag, but one day I’ll pick it up when it goes no deep sale.

I’m happy and a bit surprised that this actually got a full release. I do pop into it now and again to play, never on servers.

Did they fix the coop problem of other people have to say within 100 feet of the host? That sorta killed it for me for the early access playing. Trying to setup a stand alone server for this was kinda painfull too. I just want to set and play with a few people.

I really enjoyed my time with the Early Access version, so I’m looking forward to playing the full release with a couple friends.

Is it still really brown?

It looks like a very brown game.

The desert is brown/tan, but the Northern woodlands are very green, further North is the white, snowy mountains, some areas to the West are red (with a white, salt flat-like area), they are adding a black/red volcano area and a lush green jungle area with launch as well.
That said, the early part of the game where you are getting your bearings, leveling up 20-30 levels or so, and getting your first base set up is mostly in the large desert area. Or you could jump into a guild on a server, which could already have a base set up in any of the other regions.

I never really found the game compelling or interesting. From a building perspective the high end materials were just this huge grind of materials and the thrall system was super lackluster and unimpressive. More areas wasn’t going to fix that.

Anyone been able to launch successfully? I keep getting “server is not reachable” errors, which I’m assuming is just standard launch-day congestion

Edit for anyone with similar issues:
Seems to be BattlEye related. Getting errors running through SteamAPI atm. Dropped to filesystem and it runs fine. Go figure

so are the dicks out to stay on steam or dicks still in along side a PEGI18/AO rating?

Devs just release a censored version but you can usually find the patch on their website…

…uhm

Not that I know anything about that.

Just a guess.

A TOTAL guess.

What cracks me up to no end is when the “patch” is something like an empty file you create in the game folder and rename to “nudity_patch” or something of the kind, as a few publishers do.

I have absolutely no idea what you’re talking about.

It isn’t like that for CE. The game is unrated on PC, so full nudity is still there without any additional patches or mods.

This is also why the PC version didn’t get a physical retail version in the US.

i was under the impression steam requires ratings once out of early access.

also it says on the website it’s pegi18. didn’t see ESRB rating tho.

Reader

I’m just repeating a Funcom forum mod’s stated reasoning for not having a physical retail version for PC outside of a few select territories.

Regardless, I can confirm that full nudity is still in on official US servers for PC (if you have the option set to allow it, of course). I just checked, so worry not. Your loins are still free to flap in the breeze and terrorize and traumatize any unfortunate exiles you encounter by tea bagging them with a full monty.

If thats all you wanted to know why didnt you say so! Jeeeezz dk

well i am also sort of curious if they’ve made it anything but the poor quality in every area as mediocre and generic as it gets entry into the already cooling fad genre it’s in game it was when i looked at it near EA launch but the dicks question is the sure thing when it comes to farming points so i opted for that out of the gate. XD

Reader
Boom

aaah that stream when I first played it, janky is as janky does

ye. looked generally generic and mediocre. not bad per se but just… nothing to stand out. i mean aside from the raw dicks. LOL

I’d disagree. Personally, I find it to be the best survival game I’ve played by far. The combat and building blow everything else out of the water.

I find exploration a lot more rewarding too, since there’s dungeons and tons of PoI’s to discover that reward you with recipes, emotes, and lore bits. So, I feel like the game offers more PvE content compared to similar games.

It’s not just the flappy bits that make the game stand out IMO.
