Funcom and Koch Media have announced a global co-publishing partnership for the open-world survival game Conan Exiles, which is currently in Early Access on Xbox One and Steam. The full version of the game will launch both physically and digitally for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in early 2018.
Here’s a brief overview of the game, via Funcom:
In this online survival game players get to build anything from small homes to entire cities, explore a huge open world, team up with other players, or seek to dominate their enemies through brutal player vs. player combat. The game is set in the world of Conan the Barbarian, and players get to explore vast landscapes and either fight each other or cooperate to build a community of their own.

Rui Casais, Funcom CEO
“We are thrilled to be working with Koch Media again in bringing the world’s greatest barbarian back into store shelves. Their experience as a world-leading publisher combined with their extensive retail network will help bring Conan Exiles to an even wider audience. The fact that they know and understand Conan is also a huge benefit that will ensure all aspects of publishing the game will be executed in the true spirit of the Conan the Barbarian brand.”
Dr. Klemens Kundratitz, Koch Media CEO
“We are delighted to revive our successful cooperation with Funcom which we established during the work for Age of Conan: Rise of the Godslayer. The immense open world experience and comprehensive survival and sandbox elements in Conan Exiles impressed us. We are proud that we can take part in the next phase of this project and will focus all our know-how to build the road for a successful retail launch of the game for PC and consoles.”
