Conan Exiles is coming to Xbox One in the second half of 2017, but can the game make a name for itself in an increasingly busy crowd of survival adventure titles?
It’s difficult to talk about Conan Exiles without mentioning ARK Survival Evolved. Both games share an engine, many gameplay mechanics, and the genre, popularized by games such as Minecraft and Day-Z.
As a multiplayer game revolving around survivalism, crafting, and open-world shenanigans, I found myself wondering what new gameplay aspects (if anything) Conan Exiles would bring to the table. Using preview PC codes provided by Funcom for its early-access alpha test, I thrust myself into the merciless world of Hyboria, ready to craft my way to success.
