While we wait on Arnold Schwarzenegger to find a director for CONAN THE CONQUEROR, we can distract ourselves by becoming the barbarian ourselves! No, I don't mean plundering the nearest village (well, do what you have to do); I mean playing the recently announced CONAN EXILES, an open-world survival game set in the brutal lands of Conan the Barbarian.
A new teaser for the game has dropped; check it out below the detailed synopsis:
You are an exile, one of thousands cast out to fend for themselves in a barbaric wasteland swept by terrible sandstorms and besieged on every side by enemies. Here you must fight to survive, build and dominate. Hungry, thirsty and alone, your very first battle is that against the harsh environment. Grow crops or hunt animals for food. Harvest resources to build weapons and tools. Build a shelter to survive. Ride across a vast world and explore alone, or band together with other players to build entire settlements and strongholds to withstand fierce invasions. When strong enough, march forth into battle and wage war against your enemies as you fight to dominate the exiled lands. Sacrifice enemy players on the altars of the gods and shift the balance of power your way. Unleash your fury in savage, fast-paced combat and execute bloody and bone-crushing attacks that will see heads rolling and limbs flying.
Early Access on the PC for Conan Exiles is coming summer 2016, with a full launch on PC and console to follow. You can check out the game's official site HERE.
