Conan Exiles gets gorgeous Roman-like DLC, pets and taming coming next month

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.

Today, Funcom released the second add-on for Conan Exiles called "Jewel of the West" alongside a 49 GB patch. Jewel of the West introduces "Aquilonia" building pieces, weapons, armor, furniture, and more. In the Conan the Barbarian universe, Aquilonia is the center of the civilized world and the new content allow players to build homes and monuments in the grand style of this great nation.

The Jewel of the West pack is available on Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4 right now for $9.99. In addition to this, the development team is also working on one of the biggest free updates to the game. Creative Director Joel Bylos said, "The team is currently working hard on finalizing a massive free update that we're aiming to launch in September. This update will introduce pets and taming, an entirely new gameplay feature. We're also adding a new dungeon, a new religion, a new avatar, and more. This update will be free for all players on all three platforms."

If you love Conan Exiles, be sure to check out the game on Xbox One and the pack. We would recommend playing it on Xbox One X because it upgrades the resolution to 1440p while competing consoles only hit 1080p.
