Conan Exiles – The Frozen North Expansion
Check out the the launch trailer for the frigid expansion:
The Frozen North will be completely free to all players on PC and Xbox One, and it adds a whole new landmass and makes the world of Conan Exiles 70% bigger. It also brings the game out of the desert and into the snowy north, introducing an entirely new climate and a weather system that will require players to dress according to the temperature.
The Frozen North also introduces new gameplay mechanics such as:
- Fish traps, beekeeping, and cooking.
- Brewing, a new crafting system, will allow players to make alcohol which will also keep them warm in cold environments.
- Players will also get to dedicate themselves to a new religion, giving them the ability to summon the avatar of Ymir, the Lord of Storm and War.
- Improvements to combat, AI and more
In addition they’ve released some new screenshots for the expansion:
Conan Exiles will leave early access and release in full on PC, Xbox One, and PS4 in Q1 2018. In this online survival game players get to build anything from small homes to entire cities, explore a huge open world, team up with other players, or seek to dominate their enemies through brutal player vs. player combat.
