Conan is going to the Frozen North and I hope you brought pants cause you don’t wanna be like George Costanza and show off your shrinkage.
I don’t even know if that joke makes sense, it’s early, I’m on vacay, blah blah blah, but here’s what makes sense. Checking out Conan Exiles on Xbox One Game Preview on August 16th, which launches with the new Frozen North update. The expansion is FREE and will be both on Xbox One and PC.
This game looks bloody good!
The Frozen North ushers in the second stage of Conan Exiles Early Access, adding a whopping 70% more landmass, featuring much more content and a ton of improvements.
August 16th will be the first time the game is playable on the Xbox and I couldn’t be more excited. I’ve been following this game since its release. I wanna see some prehistoric dicks! It was rumored back in March that no dicks would be shown and the famous dick slider wouldn’t be on the Xbox version but nothing is confirmed.

And for those that like reading on a Friday morning this is for you:
The Frozen North, which will be completely free to all players on PC and Xbox One, 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 – or face certain death. The Frozen North also introduces entirely 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, and wreak havoc on enemy players and crush their cities under his feet.
“This expansion update does not just mean more content and more features,” says Creative Director Joel Bylos. “The team has also worked extremely hard to make sure this release brings with it significant improvements to core aspects of the game such as combat, artificial intelligence, and more. These improvements, in addition to the twenty-eight updates we have already introduced to the game over its six months in PC Early Access, mean this version of Conan Exiles is bigger, and even more importantly, better than ever before.”
Since launching into PC Early Access on January 31st 2017, the development team has been working tirelessly to introduce new content, improve mechanics, and eradicate bugs and exploits. The team has added siege weapons, a new dungeon, a dye system, new armor and weapons, new decorations, avatar defenses, new building pieces, and much more. The game will leave Early Access and release in full on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 in Q1 2018. Conan Exiles quickly became a smash hit with the open-world survival audience, selling almost half a million units in the first month. 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.
