Conan the Barbarian is a property that’s been around since the 1980s. You may remember a young Arnold Schwarzenegger walking around the desert with his chest puffed out. However, up until rather recently, there has never been a video game adaption of this property that truly satisfied Conan fans. Well, with the introduction of Conan Exiles in May 2018, fans finally had a way to immerse themselves in the world of Conan, begin life as an exile, and battle for survival as they traverse the various harsh environments and biomes of the world.
Conan Exiles is a game that has remained popular years after its release and has allowed players to create tribes, explore a vast open world, and battle the hulking beasts made famous within the franchise. It’s a fantastic game and for that reason, we at Conan Fanatics want to give you all the tools to begin your adventure and thrive in this new, unforgiving world.

Our Core Values
Here are the core values that we aim to uphold at Conan Fanatics:
Now it’s time to meet the team. These talented individuals began in the desert, naked and afraid just like you. They worked hard, grinded away, and became barbarians in their own right. Not only that, but they can also string a sentence or two together. These people are the ideal candidates for this project and despite being separated by time zones, cultures, and backgrounds, they all share one common goal. Creating a comprehensive encyclopedia for Conan Exiles players. Meet the team below:
Eradicati0n is a Subject Matter Expert for Conan and an avid Survival Games enthusiast, having put an extremely unhealthy amount of hours into the genre. As a content creator for Conan Exiles, he spends many hours of the day thinking about buildings and characters, but whilst he’s not doing that, you’ll likely find him playing Runescape, listening to music, or watching Netflix. Erad is a big fan of horror, slasher & extreme cinema, Friday the 13th being a big personal favorite. Away from games and shows, Erad also enjoys writing short stories, mainly dark fantasy & Lovecraftian horror, and is constantly counting down days until the next Insomnia Gaming Festival.
Favorite Indie Game: Valheim
Favorite MMO: Runescape 3
Favorite Video Game Character: Booker DeWitt (Bioshock Infinite), Raiden (Metal Gear) or Arthur Hastings (We Happy Few), pretty tough choice
Favorite Video Game Score: Valheim
Favorite In-Game World: The not-so-cheerful dystopia of We Happy Few
Outside of a screen, Emily is an avid rock climber, scuba diver, trail runner, snowboarder, kayaker, and horseback rider. If Aloy can do it, she wants to as well. She worked in the music industry for almost ten years, writing when the season was slow. When the pandemic hit she took quarantine as an opportunity to beef up her writing profile, with traveling full time on her mind. Now she travels the USA in an RV with her partner, chihuahua, and cat overlord (Zoe). If it looks like an adventure, she’s on her way!
Favorite Video Game Characters: Bayonetta and Aloy, I have a tattoo sleeve of each
Favorite Video Game of All Time: World of Warcraft, will we ever get that feeling back?
Video Game You Wished Existed: Possibly unachievable answer: An MMORPG with heavy survival influence, massive (probably needs to be ai generated) buildable world. Does anyone remember the attempt at Everquest Next? I would like a billionaire to take up the cause. NO fast travel. VR? Call me Elon.
Achievable answer: I would like to play as a cat. I was obsessed with Lion King SNES Rom.
Video Game You Own and NEED to Finish: Assasin’s Creed: Odyssey, It’s really embarrassing that I haven’t been able to touch Valhalla
Conan Exiles Hot Take: I love the score, but there really shouldn’t be combat music. Don’t tell the devs, but the warning has saved me too many times.
We hope that your time spent on Conan Fanatics is enjoyable and informative and when you pick up the controller again, we hope our content serves you well.
