Conan Exiles Treasures of Turin DLC Review – Another Immersive Culture Pack is Here!

Conan Exiles Treasures of Turin DLC
Funcom               

My two high-level friends and I had constructed a very large fortress overlooking the oasis in the middle of the central desert, west of the vast Southern Aquaduct. We considered ourselves the rightful rulers of the only patch of water—surrounded by palm trees—in the entire area, and would approach anyone who ventured to close in order to see what business they had there.

If they responded in a friendly and courteous manner, we’d let them fill their waterskins to the hilts and then be on their way. However, if they were rude or arrogant we’d probably end up in some sort of conflict with them…which usually meant them meeting their ends.

And we looked the part; all of us were of the Hyrkanian race and hence, dark, tall, and slender of build. We also sported clothes befitting the proud Hyrkanian people which consisted of garb native to the Kingdom of Turan. Turan, within the lore of Conan’s storied Hyborian world, is based on the real-life proto-Turkic cultures of old; complete with great khans and their harams, as well as lowly slaves.

One particular gaggle of interlopers had disrespected one of my brothers, and we had taught them a lesson by ambushing them as they filled their waterskins (without our consent for the umpteenth time). Utilizing our powerful Turanian bows, we softened them up with scores of arrows from our fortress parapets (which were also of Turanian design) before striding down to meet them in glorious hand-to-hand combat.

Our blades tasted their flesh and bone and we sent the few survivors of their rag-tag band scurrying like cowardly curs for greener pastures. That was the last we saw of them. We eventually ended up walling off the entire oasis, which completed our domination of the entire area.

Needless to say, role-playing in Conan Exiles can be a real blast. It’s made even more immersive with the numerous cosmetic DLC packs that the game’s developers, Funcom, have released for the game. The Treasures of Turin is the latest DLC pack that brings clothing, weapons, and well lots of other stuff as described on the DLC’s Steam page:

“Treasures of Turan Pack contains:

39 new Turanian building pieces.

A full set of building pieces with the same stats as existing tier three

15 new armor pieces in three sets, such as the Turanian Mercenary armor

Light, medium and heavy sets with an epic end-game version of each

9 new weapons in one Turanian weapon set

Same power as iron weapons with an epic end-game version of each weapon

5 new Turanian warpaints

Decorative warpaints symbolizing for example opulence and glory

9 new placeables, such as the standing lamp and brazier

Craft them at the new Turanian Artisan table

2 new exclusive pack animal pet skins

The richly adorned caravan rhino and elephant”

I personally love the Turanian building pieces which allow you to trick out your base with a decidedly Middle Eastern-style look. The Caravan Elephant and Rhino animal pet skins are also very distinctive, and really let you further immerse yourself in the whole Hyrkanian lore.

Best of all, the Treasures of Turin DLC is only $9.99, so for the cost of a small pizza you’re helping to support these hard-working devs. All of the cosmetic DLC are purely for show and don’t give any inordinate advantages over other gamers. So, purchasing them are entirely win-win situations.

SCORE: 90%

Conan Exiles features some pretty nice looking graphics that make its survival gameplay truly shine. However, you want to have a pretty beefy gaming PC or gaming laptop in order to play it at a decent framerate. So, you may just want to invest in a decent gaming rig:
