Conan, hats and prison-breaks for $12 on Humble today

Conan Exiles thrives in the wastes and continues to grow

Crom would be pleased to see a game as scrappy as Conan Exiles doing so well. Developer/publisher Funcom declared today that the barbarian fantasy survival sandbox is their fastest-selling game to date, now having shifted 1.4 million copies in total. The studio aren't resting on their laurels either, announcing some new Roman-themed cosmetic DLC, along with reiterating their promise of major free updates to the…

Mutant Year Zero is looking great in its new trailer

If you’ve not had time to sit down and watch the 30 minute Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden demo from March, you’re missing out on wise-cracking ducks and XCOM-like post-apocalyptic tactics. You’re busy, though. I understand. And there are so many games to look at. Good news, then: Mutant Year Zero’s first game footage trailer is out, clocking in at a brisk 1:26. Slap…

Conan Exiles slashes out of early access

Fantasy sandbox survive 'em up Conan Exiles left early access and launched properly yesterday, and evidently it proved more popular than developers Funcom had anticipated. With the game peaking at almost 29,000 concurrent players yesterday and official servers filling up, Funcom hastily launched extra servers - and it sounds like more might still be needed. Turns out, people quite like the idea of building settlements,…

Improved performance, server wipes, price hikes when Conan Exiles exits early access next month

Open-world survival affair/one-eyed trouser-snake simulator Conan Exiles has spent over a year in early access, initially hitting it big thanks to a combination of brutal low-fantasy setting and a whole lot of hullabaloo about winkies. Its full release is almost upon us - 14 months is a pretty brisk turnaround as these things go, especially given that devs Funcom reckon the game's doubled in size…

Secret World Legends’ Dawn of the Morninglight expansion released

Nine months after its free-to-play reboot as Secret World Legends, Funcom's globe-trotting MMO of modern myth and magic finally has a second new location to explore. For those who have finished the main story and are hungry for more, you've got a new assignment out in South Africa, and giant glowing hyenas are probably the lesser evil out there compared to the Morninglight cult.

Watch half an hour of Mutant Year Zero’s manimal tactics

A duck, a pig and a human walk into a store. They buy several grenades and a top hat for the duck which gives him +10% to ranged damage. You were expecting a punchline? We've covered a bit of tabletop RPG turned tactical hybrid  Mutant Year Zero: Road To Eden before, but previously we only had a CGI teaser trailer and a few screenshots to…

Secret World Legends is off to South Africa next

Secret World Legends is off to South Africa in its next big update, the first new land added to the supernatural MMORPG in yeeaars. While Funcom's recent free-to-play revamp-o-relaunch of The Secret World initially focused on rolling out old areas, now they're ready for new adventures with new mythologies. Old mythologies? New old mythologies. I still haven't gotten around to revisiting this pleasant spookworld after…

Mutant Year Zero: Road To Eden blends genes & genres

So, stop me if you've heard this one: A duck, a boar and a lady walk into a bar... No, it's not a joke, but the set-up for the reveal trailer to Mutant Year Zero: Road To Eden, an upcoming post-apocalyptic RPG from The Bearded Ladies Consulting, a small Swedish outfit featuring talent from both Hitman and Payday's development teams, and based on a well-regarded pen &…

Tackle a huge beast under Times Square in latest Secret World Legends raid

Funcom have been slowly building up Secret World Legends [official site] – the revamped version of their conspiracy-laden 2012 MMO The Secret World – by taking bits of the old game, polishing them up and plonking them down in the free-to-play title, which launched in June. Now it's the turn of the Manhattan Exclusion Zone, a 10-person raid that happens directly under Times Square. Any…

Frost giants and snow storms in Conan Exiles new region

Early access survival game Conan Exiles [official site] added a new chilly region called the Frozen North this week. It brings with it new weather types including rain and snow, alongside a temperature system that will affect the whole game: you'll have to wrap up warm in the new area and strip off in the game's desserts. There's shiny weapons to swing at new beasts, including wolves, bears, frost giants and…

Feature: A conspiracy of currencies

Secret World Legends Impressions – free and easy

The Secret World was always a game struggling to crawl out from under the weight of its own genre. Many have attempted to build a story-led MMO - and it's a noble pursuit - but no one has ever quite figured out how to do it, not least because an MMO is a terrible setting in which to tell a story. The Secret World got…

The Secret World relaunching F2P as Secret World Legends

Real-ish-world supernatural MMORPG The Secret World will relaunch reworked and free-to-play as Secret World Legends [official site] this spring, developers Funcom announced today. It'll look prettier, fight better, and rework quest flow, all of which sounds great. The Secret World is a wonderful game at heart, with a weird and well-written world I hugely enjoyed getting to know and some cracking puzzles, but it has…

What is best in life? Conan Exiles launches mod support

Mod support has arrived in Conan Exiles [official site], letting players futz with the guts of Funcom's craft-o-survival game. A few hiccups aside, the developers seem pretty pleased with the launch, announcing that the game sold over 320,000 copies in its first week on Steam Early Access. That's enough sales that "all development costs have been recouped", they say. Goodness me!

Conan Exiles war on lag continues

Conan Exiles [official site] developers Funcom have temporarily shut down the game's official multiplayer servers while they switch to a new host. The majority of servers for the early access survival sandbox game are unofficial player-run ones, mind, but perhaps you're a good little warchild who sticks to the playground and never jumps the fence to play in the woods. This switch is part of…

Three laggy hours with Conan Exi ConCona Conan Exiles

Oh, Early Access! Sorry, just stubbed my toe. Yes, it's certainly worked in places, but goodness me if it isn't sometimes the most infuriating way of releasing barely functioning games for a fee. Time was it cost a developer lots of money to have their game concepts tested and QAd - now they charge £27 for the privilege. That's how much it'll cost you to…

What is best in life? Conan Exiles will support mods

Funcom today announced that their craft-o-build-a-murder-e-survival sandbox Conan Exiles [official site] will support mods with official tools. They should be available right when it hits Steam Early Access on January 31st, letting folks get right down to fiddling with it. Conan Exiles is looking more polished than a lot of survive 'em ups, on paper/in slick trailers anyway, and mod support is a fine addition.…

Funcom’s Conan Exiles hits early access on January 31st

We're not short on multiplayer open-world survival games but coo 'eck, I can't think of many with spectacles like Conan Exiles [official site]. Funcom today announced they'll launch their new MOWSG into early access on January 31st, 2017 and celebrated this with a new trailer showing such delights as a metal colossus stomping through a scrappy fort to punch a giant snake in the face.…
