The Frozen North is a huge, new expansion update freely available to all Conan Exiles players on both PC and Xbox One.
Earlier today, Funcom announced the first major expansion, The Frozen North, coming to its sandbox survival game Conan Exiles after an earlier tease a few months ago. It also brings the game out of the desert and into the snowy north, introducing an entirely new climate and a weather system that will require players to dress according to the temperature-or face certain death.
The free Conan Exiles expansion will also add a lot more content to the game besides a new zone. Players will now be required to think carefully about their clothing with cooler clothing required in extreme heat and warmer clothing needed to battle the cold.
New gameplay mechanics like fish traps, beekeeping, and cooking, brewing, and a new crafting system are also introduced, together with two new construction tiers to courageous the ice of the north. Here, between the desperate howls of wolves and thundering footsteps of Frost Giants, the beating of kettle-drums can be heard as savage tribes of northmen worship Ymir, their Lord of Storm and War. Brewing, a new crafting system, will allow players to make alcohol which will also keep them warm in cold environments. Conan Exiles will also be heading to Xbox One on August 16 along with the release of The Frozen North expansion.
