Conan Exiles - Time To Mount Up

It is time to mount your steeds and ride across the plains of the Exiled Lands. One of the most sought-after features since Early Access launch is a reality: Mounts are now available in Conan Exiles!  You can engage in mounted combat and level up your pets and thralls, so they grow more powerful the more time you spend with them.
MOUNTS
Getting a mount works the same way as getting a regular pet. You will first have to find a foal, then bring it back to a Stable to raise it. Stables work the same as Animal Pens, but are for horses only.
Like Pets/Thralls, horses will grow stronger as they level up. Raise several different horses to find one with the stats you like.
Once your foal has grown into adult horse it can be placed in the world, like a regular Thrall/Pet. To ride into the sunset like your favorite cowboy you’ll need to equip your horse with a saddle, which can be unlocked at level 20.
Saddles will have different effects on your mount:
Cavalry Saddle – Fast acceleration, maximum speed, minimum defense, minimum maneuverability Scout Saddle – Long sprinting time, medium speed, low defense, maximum maneuverability Warhorse Saddle – Slow acceleration, minimum speed, high defense, low maneuverability No matter which saddle you choose, using a horse to get anywhere is significantly faster than running on foot.
MOUNTED COMBAT
With mounts we’re also introducing mounted combat. Shoot your enemies from afar with a bow and gallop away before they know what’s going on. Grab a sword, axe or mace and swing away from the comfort of your steed.  Equip a pike or a spear and attack your enemies by stabbing at them or equip a lance and tear through your opponent’s defenses with a mighty charge.
We think mounted combat is going to add a whole new level to Conan Exiles’ PvE and PvP gameplay and we’re excited to hear what you think.
PET/THRALL LEVELING
We’re also adding a leveling system for Pets and Thralls that can follow you. Leveling a Follower grants them increased stats and special bonus Perks.
When placing a Follower, they start at level 0 with a base set of Attributes. Faction and Tier determines growth rate and base Attributes, to make sure similar pets and thralls won’t be exactly the same. You can check your Follower’s Attributes by selecting “Info” from the radial menu.
Killing enemies when a Pet or Thrall follows you will grant them experience points. Crafting, exploration and other activities will not. Pets/thralls will only gain experience points when they are following you. Pets/Thralls will gain perks as they level up, which will further enhance their capability and grant bonuses to Attributes. The more specialized the Perk, the greater the bonus.

Amazon's MMO New World Release Date.

Amazon has delayed its upcoming open-world MMO New World from August 25th to an undefined spring 2021 date.  It sounds like Amazon may be taking a more cautious approach to game development after early feedback from testers that the games weren’t quite what they hoped.
The New World team wants to add “more features and content before we share it with a wider audience,” including “plenty of middle and endgame experiences,” studio director Rich Lawrence said in a blog post that was also shared on Twitter. “We want our players to feel completely immersed in the game, and know that our studio stands for quality and lasting gameplay you can trust — and that means added time to get things where we want them before we fully release.”
Does New World require a subscription?
No, there will not be a subscription fee to play New World. You only need to make a one-time purchase—it's $40 for the standard edition—though there may be expansions or other things to spend money on in the future.
How to play in Beta
If you signed up for the beta on or before July 9th, already pre-ordered the game, or are a current alpha tester “in good standing,” you’ll be able to participate in a “first-hand look at New World” beginning on the game’s previously scheduled launch date, August 25th, according to an FAQ on the New World website.
If you get access to that first look, you’ll be able to play the game “in its current state” and for “a limited period of time,” according to Lawrence.

    Elric, Grim and I recently bought this game when it was on sale on Steam.  It's a fun and interesting game that I would recommend picking up when it goes back on sale.

    Hit me up on Discord or Steam if you're interested.  I've been playing it daily for the last few weeks, and here is what I can tell you so far:

    1. While playable solo, it is a lot more fun to play with other people.  It also does not matter what planet or "server" that you start on.  It gives you the option of U.S. East or West, but all that does is determine which planets are in your available starter planet pool.  Once you start playing the game you can get to any planet.  For example, I started on a U.S. West planet.  However, through using the portal system of the game, I could easily get to the US East planets, or the EU planets, or the AU planets.  There are no restrictions between countries in this game.

    2. The game seems like it has a steep learning curve at first, but really all you need is one person to ask your questions.  If a knowledgeable player can help you out, it becomes 10x more fun.

    3. Join a guild.  While COTP doesn't have enough of a population to warrant a chapter yet, there are a few of us playing. I joined a guild called "Portal Seekers".  They have been playing together since Beta, and their players are incredibly knowledgeable about the game.  They have a portal system set up where you can freely travel to every planet in the game.  They also have established easy access to player "Shopping Malls".  It is essentially a group of portals that go directly to different players' shops.  This game has no NPC shops, so the entire economy is player driven!

    Again, just hit me up on Discord / Steam to chat. ;)

    Really fun game, I'd be playing more often and will again, after my current family crisis has had a chance to pass...

    I suspect to be on more after the first of the year. :)

    Cheers

    Grim
