Today's launch version introduces new swamp and volcano biomes, and adds the "Purge" where monsters regularly attack your base.
Funcom head Rui Casais issued the following statement alongside the game's release.
Conan Exiles is already one of the most successful titles in Funcom's 25-year history. This has been a great experience for us. When I look at the incredible journey the game has gone through in just 15 months of Early Access as well as the very positive development in player reviews over the past few months, I feel confident that we've been successful in what we set out to do. I'm very proud of the amazing work everyone on the team has done.
It's great to see that Conan Exiles is no longer in early access. Hopefully the title will live up to expectations now that it's a proper release and more gamers pick it up.
