Think I found the next DLC

pc

#1

I was going through the DefaultGame.ini file so that I could turn off the startup movies when I noticed this…

Does this mean the next DLC will be a Pict DLC?


#2

Nice find. And yes, this is just more “heavy” evidence of what we already know. Jens giggled like a kid before Christmas who knows what they are getting for presents during one of the various streams a few weeks ago when a Pict DLC was suggested for an idea. Unless Funcom is going way out of their way to misdirect, I personally think the rumors in this case are true.


#3

Whats…Pict, precious?


#4

Behold, the Conan wiki link

And how Funcom used them in AoC if you are curious.


#5

i wonder if a PICT DLC , should have t3 walls … or t0 lol


#6

I think that’s actually a legitimate question. I think it would be awesome to have a new tier 1 option, maybe wood or bone. Picts are primitive after all, living in wooded areas or whatever.

Not sure how a Pict building could be tier 3. Not a lore buff, but in AoC the Picts in Tortage made thier homes amongst stone structures, though I can’t remember if those structures were ancient ruins that the Picts used, or built themselves. Pretty sure they just inhabitanted the ruins.


#7

maybe., but yet again , level 60 content is more important at this point of time than tier 1 mats. (also you dont really need to charge people for walls that wont be there for long. (as most people will upgrade to t3 stuff. …

unless this DLC has nothing regaring buildings parts (Except placeables)


#8

Just make sure it’s made with insulated wood or black ice. Had enough of bricks to last me a lifetime.


#9

Good finding! :+1:

Looking forward to a more savage themed DLC after the rather nice but civilized packs of Khitan and Aquilonia. A variation in T1 and even more T2 would really be great, too! So many times I wanted to build a smalle keep with T3 walls and towers but wooden huts with straw roofs just for the looking. :heart_eyes:

Maybe the Picts will be the ones to finally realize using string and pegs to measure BEFORE you build in stone is a great idea, heh!

From the wiki page:

Initially they live in caves and trees, but later in tents of hides and brush-thatched huts of mud and wattle, as they learned from the Bossonians.

Hmm… Not sure how I feel about the idea of Picts as the next DLC, actually. I mean I’m fine with anything, because if it doesn’t do it for me (like Khitan), I can just avoid buying it. Mainly to avoid further cluttering up an already unwieldy building menu. Or if I love the style (like the Aquilonian) I can. No problem.

Pictish sounds… limited, in nature. Maybe it’ll be a mini-DLC to provide something at a lower price point than the full-sized packs. Or maybe it’ll have a different focus than building elements / weapons - just because that was the focal point for the first two, who says that’s all we’ll be seeing?

For the record I don’t have a problem with the price of the other packs, but I’ve heard a few complaints about it.

Stegosaurs though… hmm, Dinosaurs in Conan Exiles… that reminds me of something, can’t quite put my finger on it…


#11

:orange_book: Updated Upcoming features to reference this.

Could someone else please confirm that this line is present?


#12

Yes, one of the most popular mods today is “Exiles Architect” with mason ropes and walkways. I hope Funcom will be wise enough to integrate it into the vanilla game. It’s very, VERY convenient!


#13

Maybe it was a triple bluff? :wink: Or maybe we’re just calling it “Pict DLC” as a misdirect? Or maybe…!


#14

Whats wrong JEV, had a talk with the marketing guys? :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#15

LOL.

i want to have a frost giant thrall… so hope funcom releases a frost giant DLC. XD


#16

busted :rofl:


#17

It’s there.


#18

Either way, DLC or not, I can’t wait for the next patch. I’ve been roleplaying a pict for two weeks now and it’s been so much fun, with the archery update and the ability to use throwing axes for offhand attacks with a mace… I will finally be able to look like a real pict when I go out kidnapping people. :smiley:


#19

If Picts are, indeed, the next DLC, I desperately hope that their light armor option will be woad (essentially, a war paint that acts just like regular armor, for the sake of convenience).


#20

I really enjoyed the last 2 DLCs, my wallet is ready for the next one.
