For fans and players of video games, there’s few things as satisfying as knowing that the question you asked to a developer got answered. Why? Because it means that they heard you, and took the time to help you out, even if it’s in a small way. Players sometimes have questions that need to be solved, or have deep thoughts that could be quelled with a single sentence from the team behind the game. To that end, the team behind Conan Exiles has been taking a lot of time answering fan questions. Here are some of the highlights from the latest Q&A.
One of the first questions was about the possibility of armor being able to take damage of different types, such as getting pierced, sliced, bludgeoned, etc. For this could add a lot of tactical depth to the game. The team replied that they are considering such a thing, but also have to weigh the options of having more RPG-like elements and what that would entail.
Another asked about the climbing system (which was announced by the team to be coming soon) and how it would actually work. The team happily suggested to go check out Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and see how Link climbs in that game. Apparently, that’s how Conan Exiles will do it more or less.
Pets are still coming, with Hyena’s being confirmed to be one of the first. However, the team laments that they’ll only be able to do a certain amount of pets due to the timeline they’ve set for themselves. Finally, the team acknowledges that there will be more sound improvements coming to the game, including actually laughs being attached to the laughing emotes. There were more questions that were answered, so be sure to check out the full Q&A to find out what else was detailed.
