Does Conan Exiles have paid DLC in early access?

MightyUncleanMightyUnclean Member EpicPosts: 2,551
A buddy of mine wants me to give Conan Exiles a go with a small group of friends.  Am I correct that this game has paid DLC while still in early access?  So you pay for early access plus the optional DLC?

    OK, so you pay for EA and you get the whole package?
  • ScorchienScorchien Member LegendaryPosts: 6,871

    It's a pretty decent game. Have fun! :smiley:

    My SWTOR referral link for those wanting to give the game a try. (Newbies get a welcome package while returning players get a few account upgrades to help with their preferred status.)

    I played early and stopped because it needed some work.  Planning to give it another go soon.

    Concentrate on enjoying yourself, and not on why I shouldn't enjoy myself.

    Ok, before anyone get's the wrong idea here. You can purchase the CORE game which offers 1 portion of the map. While it's a huge area, the new EXPANSION which includes the lands to the north with a new snowy biome is not included. Unless you're ok with calling $40 for both as an ok price. Despite all that, I'm not sure I understand the problem with paid DLC in the form of expansions as wrong for a game in EA. I mean, it could just as easily been delivered as DLC AFTER the game launched, so what difference does it make.

    Would that difference be that they didnt offer a released from EA product then sought funding for a paid expansion? Is the game released or not? Or is it ok to cloud the EA waters even more.

    If you don't want to pay then don't.

    Why do people go on like they are being forced into something.

    As of this post, if you buy on Steam the DLC does cost. You can buy the base game for $30 and the DLC for $30. You can upgrade or buy them as a combo.

    Didn't ARK get all kinds of shit for doing the same thing?

    This is actually completely wrong. The 30$ dlc  "Barbarian Edition" has no in game content. It contains a tshirt (IRL) an art book, soundtrack , some conan comics and an AOC mount. 

    The Conan Exiles game is only 30$, the recent map expansion is free.

    OK, $30 for an EA game I can play with my friends and that's in a decent state of development.  I can handle that.

    It's a decent game, my biggest complaint is the combat system. It has always just felt off to me, like its some RNG on whether or not you actually hit something when you attack.

    Also it is super super grindy, join an unofficial server with increased xp and gather rates if you want to get anything done without spending 12 hrs a day playing.

    Yes, but I think it's more because their game runs like ass. But that's still true and it's released.

    I'm not a fan of the practice either way. I think if your first chapter should exit early access / beta before releasing DLC for the project. So I don't condone it here or when ARK did it. However if I wanted to play the game that wouldn't stop me.

    K.  I have never played any survival game before, so I don't really know what to expect.  All I know at this point is that my friend and his group play on a private server.

    I think paid DLC is the only chance these have to get OUT of Early Access tbh.

    If this was an indy developer I would be more inclined to believe you, they have shuttered mmos and a good single player rpg

    edit sry dont mean shuddered a good rpg  but have resources from it than indy dont.

    For what it's worth they announced a while ago that they plan to leave EA and have a full release some time in early 2018. 

  • MightyUncleanMightyUnclean Member EpicPosts: 2,551
    So what do you do in this game, exactly?  Solo, and in a group?  Gather, kill to get resources, craft armor and weapons and build shelters?  I've never played a survival game before, not even Minecraft.

    Well there's capturing slaves and turning them into thralls who work for you and guard your stuff, or so I've read.

    There are also some dungeons to explore. In any survival game your main goal is efficiency. You want to gather so you can build stuff so you can gather better. The journey is where the fun is not so much the end game. Have fun with the building aspects of the game. I spent hours just building a base. It was a blast. If you already have friends than you're already ahead of the game because that's where the real fun is. Enjoy the game for what it is and you'll be happy with the investment. 

    Pretty much played every MMO that's come out since WoW.../sigh

    So is the stuff you build persistant or do you have to regrind it all out over and over?
