If you've managed to complete pretty much everything there was to do in Conan Exiles, you'll be glad to hear that a brand new and quite massive free expansion has now arrived. Besides increasing the world map by around 70%, The Frozen North expansion has also added a variety of new and deadly enemies to square off against, a brand new god to worship and summon against your enemies, hostile environments and weather to overcome, new crafting disciplines such as brewing, giant and extremely fluffy mammoths to hunt, and the list goes on for quite a while.

You can check out what most of these new features look like in-game via the recently posted launch trailer. Its not overly long or detailed, but it should still give you a good idea of the direction Funcom is taking Conan Exiles in. Have a look:

If you're interested in all of the details, and especially if you want to learn the basics about Conan Exiles, you should head over to the official website. On the other hand, if you're looking for a few more tidbits about The Frozen North expansion, allow me to share with you the official summary that arrived with the announcement:

A HUGE, NEW LAND: The world of Conan Exiles is now 70% bigger! Climb towering mountains, explore deep forests, fight your way through massive new dungeons, and discover new people, cultures, and settlements.

WEATHER AND TEMPERATURE: In the north, rain and snow can make you freeze to death and in the desert, the burning sun can be equally deadly. Make sure you dress for the weather to stay cool or warm. Camp fires, torches, drinks, and more can also help you control your temperature.

NEW BUILDINGS AND RESOURCES: Harvest new resources such as star metal, black ice, and more. Build new homes and entire cities with all new building pieces and furniture, and make sure to use the right materials to either keep your home warm or cool.

NEW RELIGION AND AVATAR: Dedicate your work and worship to Ymir, the Lord of Storm and War. Summon his avatar and use his giant battle-axe to crush your enemies!

NEW ENEMIES: Encounter towering Frost Giants, hungry wolves, aggressive mammoths, and many other new enemies. You must also go head to head against new dungeon bosses such as Tyros the Deathbringer.

BREWING AND COOKING: These two new crafting systems lets you brew different drinks and cook up a variety of juicy meals. Make mead, wine, absinth, bug soup, demon blood sausage, and more. You can even trap fish and practice beekeeping!

BETTER THAN EVER: The expansion update brings with it a host of improvements such as better combat, better artificial intelligence on human enemies, and more. This is in addition to the 28 updates worth of additions rolled out over the past six months including climbing, siege equipment, avatar defenses, dying system, and much more!

NEW ARMOR AND WEAPONS: Find and craft three new material types: Star Metal, Black Ice, and Hardened Steel. Equip many new kinds of equipment, including the Vanir Fur Armor that will protect you from both cold temperatures and enemy strikes!

There is very little else I can offer you without spending a bit of time with the expansion itself, so I'll leave you with a couple of the new images. Have fun getting stomped by Ymir!
