Funcom announced today that Conan Exiles is now both the best-selling and fastest-selling game in the company’s history.
The game has surpassed 2008’s Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures, which had sold 1.4 million units by the time it went free-to-play three years after its initial release. Kicking off Early Access in January 2017 with a full launch in May 2018, Conan Exiles was able to break this record in less than half that time.
To go alongside this news, Funcom has released an accolades trailer for the game:

Funcom also announced today that the second DLC for the game, Jewel of the West, will launch in early August. This downloadable content will introduce new Aquilonia-themed building pieces, armor, weapons, furniture, and more. In Conan lore, Aquilonia is the center of the civilized world and its clothing and architecture is inspired by that of the real-world Romans.
According to Creative Director Joel Bylos:[testimonials user=” email=” name=” position=” photo=”]“In addition to the Jewel of the West, the team is also hard at work putting together one of our biggest free updates yet. Launching later this quarter, this update will introduce pets and taming to Conan Exiles, allowing players to find and tame anything from camels to panthers and even spiders and then use them to guard their base, carry resources, and more. This update will be free to all players on all platforms.”[/testimonials]
