Conan Exiles is the newest addition to the long line of video games surrounding the classic fantasy franchsie, Conan the Barbarian. Announced today by Funcom, Exiles serves as the first open world entry into the franchise, and will find its way onto PC this summer via Steam Early Access, followed by a console run shortly after. According to the game's description, "You are an exile, one of thousands cast out to fend for themselves in a barbaric wasteland swept by terrible sandstorms and besieged on every side by enemies. Here you must fight to survive, build and dominate."
Fallout developer Bethesda Softworks have released the final chapter in their S.P.E.C.I.A.L series of video teasers, this week covering the fickle nature of luck. But luck isn't quite the same as strength, agility, or charisma, as an abundance of luck controls not only critical strikes, but also the ability to find gear and items among a number of other potential uses for the curious mystery of a stat. Of course, luck can't save you every time, sometimes the Mysterious Stranger doesn't show up to help out. But its better to have a little bit of luck as opposed to no luck at all, so if Luck is what makes you special, then maybe you'll just be luckier than the rest of us.
Another week, another stat trait. Intelligence takes the stage in this week's S.P.E.C.I.A.L. preview, showing off the benefit of having a sharper mind in the wasteland, allowing players to find their way into areas and inventions that might not allow for those of a lesser intelligence. Not exactly the strongest stat trait out there, Intelligence helps people hack into security systems, survive smarter, traverse the wasteland with intellectual ease, and so much more.
Ubisoft has a new project to announce, coming to us via a mysterious YouTube steam that shows a caveman standing with spear and bow in hand, with a fire rustling just off camera. The video is noted with the line "Survival is timeless", and seems to either take place in a distant past, or a even further distant future.
The next video in Bethesda’s series of Fallout 4 teasers has been released, surrounding each of the unique character stats featured in the game. This time, Perception, for players who want that first shot to be the only shot needed, or perhaps feel that if they really, really want something, it might be best to just go ahead and take it.
When it comes to surviving in the wasteland, you'll need to know a lot of things, from how much you can carry, how hard you can hit, and all the benefits that strength carries with it. This is where the game's S.P.E.C.I.A.L system comes into play, the system of assigning stat points into various attributes, such as Strength, Perception, Endurance, Charisma, Intelligence, Agility, and Luck. In a new video series by developer Bethesda, we're introduced to Strength courtesy of a short animated episode posted earlier today.
