Conan Exiles system requirements set

Not too Cromplicated.

After months of relative silence, Funcom has kickstarted its marketing drive for incoming open-world survival 'em up Conan Exiles with a flurry of trailers, 360° screens, and developer diaries—the latest of which showcases the game's intriguing 'freeform' building and crafting system. Now, Funcom has released the game's system requirements ahead of its January 31 Early Access launch. 

Both ends of the spectrum—minimum and Ultra-level recommended—seem pretty reasonable, which suggests both hulking Hyborian systems and dehydrated desert-dwelling ones will fare well with a wee bit of tinkering. 

Here's what you need, according to Funcom

  • Memory: 4 GB RAM

Again, Conan Exiles is due to launch on Steam's Early Access initiative on January 31. For answers to some of the questions you may have, MMORPG.com hosted an AMA with the game's creative director Joel Bylos yesterday which is worth checking out.
