Today we have some big and very exciting news for you!
We’re very excited tell you that Conan Exiles will leave Early Access/Game Preview and launch in full on May 8th, 2018! Not only will it be available digitally on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, we’re also teaming up with Koch Media to bring Conan Exiles to retail stores around the world.
You can now pre-order the physical Day One Edition for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 (currently available in select territories with select retailers, with more on the way). Not only does it come in a pretty cool box (check out the pictures below!), it also includes a full-color print map of the Exiled Lands along with an exclusive in-game item you can use from launch: Conan’s Atlantean Sword! Check out www.conanexiles.com for more information on where you can pre-order the physical retail version of Conan Exiles. We’ll be updating it with more retailers throughout the week as they become available.
The game will still remain available in PC Early Access and Xbox Game Preview until launch and everyone who purchases the game before launch will of course get access to the final release version as well at no extra cost. Please note that immediate access to PC Early Access and Xbox Game Preview is only available when purchasing the digital version. Purchasing the game digitally also entitles you to receive an exclusive in-game item you can use from launch: Conan’s Royal Armor!
The game will become available on PlayStation 4 on May 8th next year. Retail pre-orders of the PlayStation 4 version are available now and digital pre-orders will start later. Pre-ordering the PlayStation 4 version will give you Conan’s Atlantean Sword at launch, while pre-ordering it digitally when available gives you Conan’s Royal Armor.
So, to sum up:
Today we can also share with you the launch pricing across all platforms. Starting May 8th next year, Conan Exiles will adjust its price to $39.99 on PC (up $10 from the Early Access price of $29.99). The price on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will come in at $49.99. There will naturally be some variations between currencies and between stores, but this is the digital and suggested retail price in US dollars.
As we informed last week, the Xbox Game Preview price will be adjusted to $49.99 starting this week. The PC Early Access price of $29.99 will remain the same until launch on May 8th next year. For more information on why we have to adjust the Xbox One pricing now, please check out last week’s update.
As is common with Game Preview or Early Access games, it’s always been our plan to increase the price to reflect the quality and content of the final game. By the time we launch, the game will have received over a year of constant polish, improvements, bug fixes, and new content. We’ve added the entire Frozen North biome, new dungeons such as The Dregs, and new features including siege weapons, climbing, the exploration system, the journey system, orbs, traps, and more.
The version we release at launch will have even more content and gameplay in it than what you see today, and will have a landmass more than double the size of what we started out with on PC Early Access launch. In fact, we’re adding the volcano area and an entire new jungle biome. We’ll also roll out a completely remade combat system, and new gameplay mechanics. All of this will be included and available to everyone who bought the game before launch and from launch onwards.
We look forward to revealing more details on all the new content and the new gameplay mechanics in the months leading up to launch.
We’re thrilled to announce the Conan Exiles Limited Collector’s Edition! We’ve been dying to tell you about this one. This is the ultimate box of goodies for any fan of Conan Exiles and the barbarian himself, and it will be available at launch on May 8th next year. We’re only producing a limited number of these, so we highly recommend pre-ordering if you want to secure one for yourself!
The Limited Collector’s Edition comes with the following goodies:

The fact that we’re getting closer to launch certainly doesn’t mean that we’re done with the game. We still have several months of Early Access/Game Preview left, and we’re working hard on improvements and bug fixes in addition to new content and features. We’ll keep supporting and adding more content to the game after launch — the Exiled Lands will be a living, breathing place!
Thank you for being part of the Conan Exiles community, and last but certainly not least, thank you for providing us with your invaluable feedback and helping us making Conan Exiles a better game.
We’ll get back to you soon with more information about future content and features!
