Conan Exiles is a open-world survival game which challenges players to survive, build and dominate in the brutal world of the greatest fantasy hero of all time: Conan the Barbarian.

"I walk in a land of desperation. A wasteland of the exiled and the outcast. Where the broken strive to build and the weak are crushed while the strong survive."

These are the words of Conan the Barbarian as he strides across a desert wasteland, skulls and bones crushing beneath is sandaled feet.

Conan Exiles is first and foremost a multiplayer game that can be enjoyed on both private and public servers, but it will also feature a single-player mode.

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.

With a massive new map, more than a dozen new dungeons, and game-changing features, such as Surges of Sorcery and The Maelstrom, Isle of Siptah promises to be a whole new way to experience the online survival game Conan Exiles.

The expansion is set on a mysterious island, where massive storms and great surges of sorcery have dominated the skyline for centuries. Why these events are taking place and what significance the fabled sorcerer Siptah holds, is something the players will discover for themselves, as they explore the islands many underground vaults. Isle of Siptah is plentiful with secrets to be discovered, dating all the way back to the first war between the Elder Races and mankind.

The surges of sorcery act as a link between the Exiled Lands and the Isle of Siptah, forcefully dragging humanoids from the mainland to the island. While the great tower in the middle of the island was still inhabited, these unfortunate souls would serve as human sacrifice or worse. Now, they’ve become the centerpiece of conflict, as exiles seek to control the surges for their own benefit.

Players get to start anew in Isle of Siptah, making this the perfect time for new and returning players to get into the action – as everyone will start at a level playing field. Acquiring the expansion while in early access will also grant the player a limited-edition War-torn Rhino mount skin – as well as give access to new mounts and building pieces in both the expansion and the base game.

The expansion has now been released into early access on PC, with full launch on PC, PS4 and Xbox One to follow in early 2021.

Acquiring the game while in early access, will save money compared to acquiring the game at launch. The base game is currently available at a massive 65% discount in the same store. This offer ends on September 21st.

You are an exile, one of thousands cast out to fend for themselves in a barbaric wasteland swept in sandstorms and besieged by enemies on every side. Grow crops or hunt animals for food. Harvest resources to build weapons and tools. Build a shelter to survive. Ride across a vast world and explore alone, or band together with other players to build entire settlements and fortified strongholds, and wage war against your enemies as you unleash your fury in savage, fast-paced combat that will see limbs flying and heads rolling.

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.

You can even align yourself with the Hyborian gods, building altars to their glory and sacrificing the bloody hearts of enemy players upon them to shift the balance of power in your favor. Players will also have to face the purge: a special event where NPC armies from the neighboring kingdoms sweep in to destroy the progress that the exiles have made. Will you stand together with your fellow players against the purge, or will you use it to your advantage?

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.

Conan Exiles is currently available on PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
