Conan Exiles is an addictive game which still suffers from some serious performance issues on Xbox One X and other platforms. However, that hasn't stopped it from becoming quite the sensation. Today, Funcom announced that Conan Exiles is now the best-selling and fastest-selling game in the company's history. Conan Exiles surpassed Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures which sold 1.4 million copies by the time it went free-to-play three years later.
Recently, Funcom released "The Imperial East Pack" for $9.99 which adds a host of gorgeous objects. In celebration of the sales milestone, the team revealed that more add-ons would hit the game very soon. The "Jewel of the West" content will launch in early August and is also expected to be $9.99. This pack introduces new Aquilonia-themed buildings, weapons, armor, furniture, and more. "Aquilonia" is the center of the civilized world and its clothing and architecture is inspired by that of the Romans.
Creative Director Joel Bylos issued the following statement alongside the Jewel of the West announcement.
In addition to the Jewel of the West, the team is also hard at work putting together one of our biggest free updates yet. Launching later this quarter, this update will introduce pets and taming to Conan Exiles, allowing players to find and tame anything from camels to panthers and even spiders and then use them to guard their base, carry resources, and more. This update will be free to all players on all platforms.
It's great to see that pets and taming will be a free update for everyone. Hopefully it'll be here sooner rather than later. Just like Ark: Survival Evolved, taming creatures has been a much-requested feature.
For those unfamiliar with the game, Conan Exiles is an online survival game either played from the first-person or third-person perspective. While the title features numerous characters and mysteries to uncover, it still revolves around gathering resources, learning new schematics, and crafting better gear or shelter. Starting off with nothing more than a stone house, you'll eventually be able to build entire cities from "Black Ice" with dangerous siege weaponry.
