Survival games are all the hype now, and I love it. It was about time that Battle Royale got kicked off its throne, and I'm loving Valheim and V Rising, so it is my pleasure to introduce you to another great survival title: A seemingly endless open world, ranging from deserts to lush junges, where you can climb, swim, build, with Dark Souls like combat... sounds good? Trust me it is.
Conan Exiles Is Getting Major Upgrade
Conan Exiles has been around for a while, and there's good reason for it: It's one of the best survival games out there, and Ark 2 is going to have its work cut out for it, trying to win over the Conan player base. The main difference between Valheim, V Rising and Conan are the graphics: Conan has more demanding visuals, and thus you'll require a more powerful PC to run it.
It's the perfect time to get into the game, because soon, Conan Exiles is entering version 3.0 - basically akin to getting its second sequel, and with the major update come a lot of improvements to the game:
- Magic and necromancy is being added to the game
- The traits and leveling system is getting an overhauk
- Fast travel points and teleportation is added
- A new building system, optimized for controllers
- A new creative mode
- A new battle pass and in-game store
- New gear, mounts, skins, and other cosmetic features
As of now, this is all just a leak, with the official announcement due on June 21, and a release date supposedly aiming for Q3 of this year.
Seriously, if you're having a good time with Valheim and/or V Rising, you should definitely give Conan Exiles a go - chances are it's going to rob you of even more of your time. You're welcome.
