    You are an exile, outcast and downtrodden, sentenced to walk in a barbaric wasteland where the weak are crushed and only the strong can live. Here you must fight to survive, build, and dominate the world alone on your own server, or with enemies and allies in online multiplayer.

    Journey through a vast, seamless world filled with the ruins of ancient civilizations and uncover its dark history and buried secrets as you seek to conquer and dominate the exiled lands yourself. Start with nothing but your bare hands and forge the legacy of your clan, from simple tools and weapons to gigantic fortresses and entire cities. Enslave the bandits of the exiled lands to do your bidding by breaking them on the grueling Wheel of Pain. Sacrifice the beating hearts of your enemies on the blood-soiled altars of your god to seize true power and glory. Summon the colossal avatar of your god and see them lay waste to your enemies and their homes.

    Just remember: in this brutal land of vengeful gods, bloodthirsty cannibals, and vicious monsters, survival is more than tracking down food and water. Explore mysterious ruins in search of treasure and knowledge, but beware the risk of your mind being corrupted by the dark forces of the world. Traverse vast sand dunes and seek shelter from scouring sandstorms sweeping across the burning sands. March into war against your enemies and unleash your savage fury in brutal combat. Go in unprepared and it will be your head rolling and limbs flying.

    Conan Exiles is not an empty sandbox. It is a world rich in history where you must discover the knowledge and secrets of ancient civilizations as you struggle to build your own.

    * SURVIVE THE BARBARIC WASTELAND
    In the world of Conan the Barbarian, survival is more than being well-fed and hydrated. Here you must weather scouring sandstorms, save your mind from being corrupted and going insane, and fight vicious monsters from the darkest holes of the earth.

    * BUILD YOUR LEGACY IN A VAST, SEAMLESS WORLD
    Journey through a huge, seamless world filled with danger and opportunity, exploring everything from sand dunes to towering ruins. Harvest resources to craft tools and weapons, then build everything from a small settlement to entire cities.

    * DISCOVER THE DARK HISTORY OF ANCIENT CIVILIZATIONS
    Explore shadow-haunted ruins of ancient civilizations and discover great treasures and knowledge. Learn about the people who inhabited this world before and what led to their demise through inscriptions, wandering NPCs, and the environment itself.

    * CALL UPON THE POWER OF THE GODS
    Cut out the hearts of your enemies and sacrifice it upon the altars of your god to earn their blessing. Summon and take direct control of huge, towering avatars and wreak havoc on your enemies as you crush their homes and drive them from their lands.

    * DEFEND YOUR LAND WITH AN ARMY OF SLAVES
    Enslave the criminals of the exiled lands and force them to join your cause and defend your territory. Put them through the grueling Wheel of Pain to break their will, then turn them into archers, crafters, entertainers, and more. Find rare thralls for the greatest rewards!

    * DOMINATE YOUR ENEMIES
    March forth to war against your enemies, use explosives and see their fortifications crumble to dust, then unleash your savage fury with brutal attacks that will see heads rolling and limbs flying. Find or craft a wide range of weapons and armor.

    * PLAY TOGETHER OR ALONE

    Conan Exiles is one of the best survival games on the market, improved tremendously over the months spent in Early Access.

    Given its dark and mature fantasy theme, Conan Exiles is a surprisingly accessible online survival experience. Even under the most generous conditions the game will still challenge you as you make your mark on the world, and players who fancy themselves as survival game experts will find plenty to pit their abilities against. No matter your level of experience, Conan Exiles is a survival experience that is very much worth investing in.

    It’s a game of magnificent vistas and embarrassing glitches, epic ambitions and humdrum work. The world is vast and beautiful, yet filled with dumb animals and even dumber enemies. While never less than absorbing, it can be hideously annoying too.

    Conan Exiles brings you in a violent world, full of background stories and dangerous places, but still feels crippled due to technical flaws, despite the time passed in early access on Steam.

    Conan Exile's gameplay is a lot of fun whether you're playing by yourself or with other people. It's also extremely addictive which makes the game worth your time. It provides a decent challenge with a lot of different features and the developer promises to incrementally add new content which is great news. The game could benefit from some optimization since the game suffers from considerable frame drops and other technical glitches which negatively affect your enjoyment.

    Conan Exiles is one of the most disappointing games I have played this generation. I have not experienced another game on PlayStation 4 as broken as Exiles. It is hard to believe that a game could be released for purchase in such bad condition. In another genre, the bugs in Exiles might be fun or amusing. In a survival game, they are crippling. Gamers deserve, and should demand, better.

Only been playing on local offline single player mode as I learn the systems and strategies but good fun so far. Great character models, robust character creator and simple, but visually pretty world. Crafting is a little un-intuitive but serviceable and the building mode has incredible potential. Lots of options to design the game/server to customize the game-play experience to your own specific tastes. I'm having a good time - recommended. B+ Expand

    Let's be honest, this game is trash, pretty much everything about it is "B Grade".
    It should be a free-to-play game but its not.

    Let's be honest, this game is trash, pretty much everything about it is "B Grade".
    It should be a free-to-play game but its not.
    It cost me about $NZ27.00 and I got my jollies for a few hours.
    Props to the developer for adding in the "Endowment" options, i genuinely wish more developers had the balls to do this.
    Otherwise, the combat is a joke, the game is a grind and is even more pointless without a story.
    I knew full-well what I was getting into buying this game and now I know it simply isn't worth my time.

    One of the worst survival rpg ever made with developers not giving a **** about year old bugs and players complains.
    Item wheel was a terrible decision compared to the hotbars.
    Combat system itself is terrible, it's very easy to abuse to win against any single mob, so all difficulty comes from being swarmed by mobs. Also npc archers are very annoying because they don't need to deal with item wheel, so they can change weapon and start attacking instantly, dodged melee strike? Enjoy 2 arrows right away in your head.
    Mobs loot is totally random, so you usually pick 2h hammer from archers and arrows from dancers. And of course none of them drops clothes they wear
    Another butt bleeding thing about npc it's their respawn time. They respawn all together and not some time after you kill them like in any normal game, so you can be in middle of npc village when they all decided to respawn together, have fun.
    From dungeons only tested dregs and while itself it was pretty neat experience, I run in the many bugs that didn't saw on the pc early access. Like first door opening only once and after that if you left dungeon you can't get inside after first water area.
    Exp gains are ****ed, so killing spiders that die from one combo is faster than killing anyone else. Exiles don't give much exp at all, despite loving to swarm you.
    Progression itself is lacking too, of course you can do adventure log, but it's limited, crafting and gathering don't bring much exp. So only grinding remains, just like in the age of conan which failed for the same reason
    Multiplayer part has all problems of typical survival rpg with only difference is that developers didn't even bothered to do anything about it. Like players claiming all free land with columns, but there it also prevents mobs from spawning

The graphics are sub-par and the fighting mechanics are clunky and clumsy. In a day and age where quality reigns supreme this is unacceptable. I don't purchase games anymore because of being duped by the great game play trailers. I will be sending this one back and awaiting the next one. Rent this one if you must but, DO NOT buy it, you'll be disappointed. Expand
