Conan Exiles; open-world survival coming to Steam Early Acces January 2017

Funcom released a video today explaining some basic gameplay concepts and mechanics for the upcoming open-world survival game Conan Exiles. The game is partitioned to progress from survival, to building and expansion, and eventually reaching domination - over the environment or over other players, depending on the type of server you are playing on.

Conan Exiles looks like a lot of fun, and takes some risks by adding enslavement as a gameplay mechanic, which is sure to turn some heads on release. But what I'm scratching my head over is, weather Conan the Barbarian is going around all day and nailing people off crosses?

"Before you succumb to the darkness you see the outline of a tall figure. Conan the Barbarian stands before you. He puts his bulging muscles to the task and frees you from the cross."

Oh, ... So that's what the dev-blog says, huh? Well, it doesn't HAVE to make sense, right?
