It isn’t often that a Steam Early Access game makes its way to console, but that’s changing radically this year. Not only is PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds coming to Xbox One before Christmas 2017, but so is the latest Conan game.
Conan Exiles is just days away from its debut on Xbox One, bringing a mature survival experience that is unlike anything else on the platform. As part of the lead up to launch, its development team has recorded a gameplay walkthrough that showcases what the game will be like to play on console.
The gameplay stream shows the game running on Xbox One for its first time, and it appears to be a solid port. In the video the developer can be seen gathering, building, fighting, and more, all with narration to explain the game’s fundamental systems. You can watch it below:
Conan Exiles was described by Funcom communications manager Tor Egil Andersen as the following:
Conan Exiles is an open-world survival game set in the brutal lands of “Conan the Barbarian.” Here you have been exiled to a harsh desert, where you must build and dominate the lands around you to survive. You can either play alone in single-player, in co-op with friends, or on a private or public online server populated with dozens of other players.
The world we’ve built for Conan Exiles is huge. You’ll find forgotten lore and ancient ruins, survive thirst and starvation, battle terrible monsters, build castles and face off against enemy players as you battle for dominance. With the free expansion update, we’re adding over 50% to the available play area. The new lands are a huge departure from the sun-drenched deserts of the base game, and here you get to explore vast forests and towering mountain-tops. There’s new enemies, new resources, new building pieces, and much more.
Conan Exiles is arriving just in time to prelude this holiday season’s Xbox One software line-up, with an August 16th date that matches the arrival of the game’s first expansion, The Frozen North. This expansion will be free for everyone, and included as part of the base Conan Exiles Xbox One experience.
