Conan Exiles is an addictive game which still suffers from some alarming performance issues on Xbox One X and other platforms. However, that hasn't stopped it from becoming quite the sensation. Recently, 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.
Aggressive post-launch support keeps players coming back for more, and that seems to be the way Funcom is supporting Conan Exiles. Pets and taming systems went live on the PC test server a week ago, and add more complexity to the "thrall" mechanic. Once you've tamed a pet, you'll have to keep it alive by feeding it food. You can also set up an automatic dispenser that does that as long as it's stocked. Human thralls also need nourishment now, so you have to add food to their inventories too.
In a livestream, the team showcased the pets and taming system, along with the new ""Midnight Grove" region. Beforehand, only Ark: Survival Evolved allowed you to capture creatures in such a manner. It's great to see that this heavily-requested feature is making its way gamers soon.
We can't wait until this update hits Xbox One in the coming weeks. Hopefully the patch will bring some much-needed performance improvements too.
