    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
    Play alone locally or fight for survival and dominance in persistent multiplayer on public servers. You can also host your own server and invite others to join you in a world where you have full control of the rules and settings. Want to play with just handful of friends? Try co-op mode!

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

    Despite its issues and flaunts, I couldn't keep myself away from Conan Exiles. Its meaty combat, huge map and nicely paced objectives made the game morish, even when I got lost (in the menus, not the jungles).

    Conan Exiles is a good survival game, though only for the most enthusiastic fans of the genre.

    Even though some of its major aspects, like the battle system and the tiresome grinding, are keeping it from being great, Conan Exiles is a promising and unique survival game that -with the proper attention from the developer- could soon become a must-have for enthusiasts of the genre.

    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 excels in its sense of place, and has an absorbing and complex crafting system that will keep you coming back, but there is no escaping that it is a deeply flawed game that still feels a little unfinished.

The combat isConan exiles its like a third person view Age of Empires, with a lot to research, explore and build plus the survival aspect. The combat is pretty neat and I love the feeling of exploring a world without an annoying story quest marker.

    It has some bugs, but I never encountered a game breaking bug while playing it, plus the people behind the game are working on improving the game on future updates.

    Conan Exiles offers a huge map with multiple environments and terrifying dungeons to explore. Setting up shop by the river and lazilyConan Exiles offers a huge map with multiple environments and terrifying dungeons to explore. Setting up shop by the river and lazily harvesting eggs and meat from the weird turtle monsters was only so fulfilling. It was time to get out there and see what the world had to offer. Also a host of trolls rampaged through my settlement in the night and destroyed everything…

    The Hyborian wilds are teeming with savage encampments and gruesome monsters to explore and slaughter. If you can avoid the corruption that might send you mad and enslave enough thralls to batter your way through the cities of skeletons then one day you might become the mighty conqueror of the entire server. It’s not easy but one thing I can definitely say for Conan Exiles is that despite the gameplay and graphics being quite run of the mill it really is quite addictive.

    Conan Exiles is a savage survival game set in the lands of high adventure. You'll need grit, determination and a stable internet connection to make the most of it but if survival games are your kind of thing then Conan Exiles won't disappoint.

It had engaging and grind worthy game play that kept me occupied, and interested, but failed to maintain the passion that was seen in the intro's cinematic sequence. It felt more or less like a re-skin and reworking of 'ARK: Survival Evolved' with a Conan theme tacked on. Even more disappointing was the fact that one of the game's key selling points, the partial nudity, was censored on console making the sales pitch misleading. The added fact that the option to toggle on/off partial nudity is still available in-game further proves it was the publishers/developer's choice to censor the game's more maturely inviting feature. It could have been so much better. Expand

It is not absolutly trash but the laggs are so huge.. then, all Servers are full. No Chance to join or to play - and if you come into one, you get kicked after a few minutes because of what ever error it is.
    EDIT: There're huge framedrop issues and freezes. Not really enjoyable right now.
    EDIT 2: I bought the pc version now. Ps4 version is unplayable.
