January 31st will see the Early Access launch of Funcom’s Conan Exiles and today the developers released an exciting new video introducing fans to player cities, crafting and other elements of the construction process.

“They say that home is where your heart is, but in ‘Conan Exiles’ home is where you keep the hearts of your enemies. Building is a big part of ‘Conan Exiles’ and you will need to build smart and build strong in order to defend yourself from the environment, cannibals, monsters, and of course enemy players. We are working hard to make sure players have powerful tools to build and defend their kingdoms.” Joel Bylos, Creative Director at Funcom

Lead Designer Oscar Lopez and Creative Director Joel Bylos walk viewers through the unique construction mechanics of Conan Exiles, including a flexible building system that allows players to build “almost anywhere”. More information is also revealed on the giant avatars that players can summon through religion and the thrall system.
