According to Funcom, The Frozen North expansion will see Conan Exiles enter “phase two” of its Early Access journey and will be made available on August 16th for all PC players for free. The expansion is also releasing on the same day that Conan Exiles will launch on Xbox One via the Xbox Game Preview program.
The Frozen North expansion will add over 70% more landmass to the game, including new snowy mountains, as well as introduce a range of new content like new AI factions, dungeons and a brand new weather system which will add temperature to the game.
