Funcom plans to release Conan Exiles out of the Early Access period in less than a month. The game's release will entail added zones, monster invasions and a revamped combat system. Hopefully it won't be a Failcom title, but a Funcom title.

Funcom's newest Conan themed game is leaving Early Access on 08 May 2018 after a rather long testing period of 15 months. The company is currently in partnership with the Conan Properties International LLC and are in mainly charge of video game adaptations.

The team announced they were going to let the game off its leash from the Early Access holding pen as well as release it on PlayStation 4. What they also promised is the game won't just be a status change to version 1.0. Whether they will deliver on their promise or not is questionable, knowing their previous instances of such assurances with their previous MMO, Age of Conan.

So far, the way the company is going isn't exactly what us laymen would term as upwards. Funcom assured players to add new features to the game upon release such as a massive expansion to the explorable area of the world, monster invasions titled purges and an improved combat system. 

They also promised unlisted changes coming to the game, but we can assume all of that is personal relations talk in order to get more players interested in the game. The option remains for Funcom to gather themselves and do exactly what they didn't do with Age of Conan.

Conan Exiles is an open world survival game in which players create a naked man or woman and try to survive the harsh world of the Hyborian Age. They will have to manage their hunger and thirst by finding drinkable water and edible food by hunting or maintaining a vegan diet.

PvP is present in the game on servers which allow such actions. Choosing a religion is an interesting addition to the game, which will give players access to new recipes in exchange for them gaining favour with their chosen deity by building altars.
