Conan Exiles to add 'frozen highlands' biome in free August update

Free Conan Exiles expansion will bring new enemies

4K Xbox One X support is coming too.

The Highlands expansion will transport players from the desert to the snowy north, where you'll be forced to survive beneath the open sky. With just a couple months left to go until the expansion is available to both PC and Xbox One gamers, fans can expect Funcom to pull the curtain back sooner rather than later.

Not much is known about the expansion beyond the teaser trailer below, but devs did say that the game world will expand by about 50%.

Funcom's PC survival hit Conan Exiles will launch on the Xbox One Game Preview programme 16th August. It will include new environments, monsters, buildings, game features and more.

Funcom just announced via press release that Conan Exiles, the open-world survival game available now via Steam Early Access, will take advantage of the Xbox One X's "superior hardware" to "bring the world of Conan the Barbarian to life in attractive 4K resolution".

"In other news, Funcom has confirmed that it will release an update for Conan Exiles to support Xbox One X. The update will "[take] advantage of the system's superior hardware power to bring the world of Conan the Barbarian to life in lovely 4K resolution", Funcom said.
