"Early Access and Game Preview has been an absolutely invaluable tool for us in developing Conan Exiles," said creative director Joel Bylos. "Being able to get direct feedback from players has allowed us to focus our work on improvements, bug fixes, and new content. We still have a few months to go and are by no means done squashing bugs and making improvements. We’re working hard on new content and gameplay mechanics – including the new jungle and volcano biomes!"

So... it's a realistic minecraft where people come and destroy your stuff? This is fun? I'm confused.

It also features godlike avatars that you can summon and control. MInecraft doesn't really have a feature like that, let alone the physics that Conan has.

We could simplify open world crafting games as just "Minecraft" clones, but they all have something else to them that Minecraft does not make use of or have.

The game has dungeons to roam about and loot. NPC's you can literally beat and tie up, dragging them back to your base and making them your thralls, to work or defend your base. You can scale mountains and cliffs like you can in Zelda BotW.

It's been a few months since I last played it. I'll have to check into it again sometime to see what they've done with it.
