Speaking on the news, game director Joel Bylos stated in a press release: “The open-world survival genre is ripe for Conan’s conquest. If there ever was a world that can truly test your strength and skill, it is the brutal and savage world of Conan the Barbarian. ‘Conan Exiles’ is not just an empty sandbox, it is a world rich in history where you must discover the secrets of ancient civilizations as you struggle to build your own.”
It doesn’t appear the game is getting a PlayStation 4 release just yet. The game is set in the world of Conan the Barbarian. It will have playability on private and public servers. Players can take part in multiplayer or local single-player gameplay.
