My own feelings about Conan Exiles aside (review coming soon!), it is clear that the game has garnered a wide and very devoted fanbase. Coming out of Early Access on May 8th, 2018 after a successful 17-month run, Conan is extremely popular and is showing no signs of slowing down.
To keep all of those barbarians happy, Funcom has announced a new DLC, The Imperial East Pack, which is now available. The new DLC introduces a wide variety of new items and building pieces inspired by the eastern Kingdom of Khitai. According to the press release, “players will be able to build new, Khitai-themed buildings, fill them with new furniture and decorations, acquire new Khitai-patterned war paints, and don several new and ornate armors and weapons brought from Khitai to the Exiled Lands.”
In addition to this paid DLC, Funcom is working on a bunch of free add-ons that are sure to please Exiles fans. “We’re excited to have launched the first DLC for Conan Exiles, but DLCs are only one part of the post-launch strategy for the game,” said Funcom Creative Director, Joel Bylos. “We are also working on bug and stability fixes along with several free updates, including pets and taming, new dungeons, a new religion, and more. These are all large, game-altering updates that will be provided free to all players.”
In the meantime, The Imperial East Pack is now available on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One for $9.99.
