Updated December 5, 2019: The mounts update is now available in Conan Exiles. The patch also brings a lot of other enhancements like better movement, dodging, and more. You can take a look at the patch notes on Funcom's forums.

Conan Exiles is an open-world survival game set in the savage lands of Conan the Barbarian. The game launched in May 2018, and has since received a lot of content updates. While the paid packs are cosmetic, the free updates have added new bosses and much more. However, the greatest changes seem like they're ahead of us.

Today, the developer, Funcom, announced that Conan Exiles is getting one of the longest-requested features. Soon, you'll be able to mount various creatures and wreck havoc on your foes. The team said, "A free update will see all exiles able to capture and train their own mounts, as well as a new pet leveling system and mounted combat. This means players will finally be able to charge into battle, wielding their sword high, driving their enemies before them!"

While the mount system will be free to everyone in December, a new cosmetic pack called Riders of Hyboria, will be released simultaneously for $10 and as part of the Year 2 Season Pass. This will offer a wider range of mounts and armor.

Are you excited for these changes? Let us know. Hopefully, you'll be able to ride the giant rhinoceros because that's sometime I've wanted to do since the game launched.
