Developer Funcom’s new sandbox-style game Conan Exiles is not said to coming to the Nintendo Switch, according to Game Designer Joel Bylos in an interview with DualShockers. Bylos said that there is no plan to put the game on the Nintendo Switch and that there has yet to be a conversation between him and Nintendo about the game coming to Nintendo in the future
Conan Exiles is already available for Steam through its Early Access feature. However, Bylos says that the game is running on the Xbox One internally. He says the game looks good, but they just need to work on the controls. Xbox One users will also have available an update that expands the game from the desert into highlands and mountains. The game will be fully available later this year on the Xbox One via its Game Preview system. It has been confirmed that the game will be available on the PS4, but that won’t be until sometime in 2018.
For those who don’t know about the Conan universe, just know that it is the least politically correct you can get in a video game, according to Giuseppe Nelva of DualShockers who cites the multiple nude scenes in the preview as one of many ways the game will make you cringe.
In Conan Exiles, you play as a criminal who has recently been crucified into the Exiled Lands, an imaginary desert area scattered with remains of an ancient civilization. In the desert, you have to kill other players and NPCs for loot. Not only do you kill them, but you can also steal their souls to make healing potions. On top of that, you can also harvest their flesh in order to please your hungry and cannibalistic God Yog.
You don’t even have to kill them. You can also hit the NPCs on the head with a truncheon, drag them tied by their ankles with their face in the sand back to your base, strap them to the iconic wheel of pain, feed them disgusting gruel, and break their will until they become your loyal slaves.
It certainly isn’t for the faint of heart.
