Funcom announced today that its open-world survival game, Conan Exiles, will leave Early Access and officially launch or PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on May 8.

Conan Exiles went into Early Access on PC in January. It sold 320,000 copies in one week. The survival game debuted on Xbox One Game Preview in August. The PlayStation 4 version will not have any kind of early access before the official launch.

Lengthy Early Access periods are the norm for survival games, but many of them have been committing to full releases recently. Ark: Survival Evolved had its official release in August.

The PC version will cost $40 in May, while the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions will go for $50. If you buy Conan Exiles while it’s still in PC Early Access, you can get it for $30. The Xbox One Game Preview version costs $50, so you can’t save any money there.
