The newest video presents the mechanics of city building with various advancement options.
Conan Exiles is all about survival and having a place to live as key element of life. Check the following developer commentary:
It’s interesting to see how survival elements like resource gathering and crafting are expanded into much bigger mechanics. A lot of teamplay and a common goal will be needed, that’s for sure.
Conan Exiles is set to release in Early Access on January 31st on PC with Xbox One Game Preview coming later this Spring.
