Conan Exiles, Funcom’s Open-world survival title set in the savage lands of Conan the Barbarian will leave Early Access and launch into digital/retail stores in 2018. May 8th 2018 is the big date, and it will also see the premiere of Conan Exiles on the Playstation 4. The prices for Conan Exiles were also revealed for all platforms. The PC version will launch at $39.99 while Xbox One and PlayStation 4 will launch at $49.99.

“Early Access and Game Preview has been an absolutely invaluable tool for us in developing Conan Exiles,” says Creative Director Joel Bylos. “Being able to get direct feedback from players has allowed us to focus our work on improvements, bug fixes, and new content. We still have a few months to go and are by no means done squashing bugs and making improvements. We’re working hard on new content and gameplay mechanics – including the new jungle and volcano biomes!”
