Conan Exiles Build a Tower Contest

    It’s time for a Tower of the Elephant themed building contest in Funcom’s excellent game Conan Exiles, available for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4! The contest, hosted by Funcom and publisher Perilous Worlds, is a celebration of the launch of Conan the Cimmerian: The Tower of the Elephant on Kickstarter – a board game that got funded in mere three hours. Have you backed it yet?

    The challenge is a simple, yet daunting one: Build the iconic Tower of the Elephant in Conan Exiles.

    Planning and practice are key to creating your vision in Conan Exiles whether it’s a fortress or cottage by the riverside. Building potential is limitless when using full advantage of the arsenal of building pieces, decorations, and furniture. The Tower of the Elephant is as imposing as it is mysterious, so I am looking forward to seeing it fully realized in your own vision. Will it contain rooms? Will you have tigers waiting out front? What will come from your creativity?

    So what can you build in Conan Exiles then? Well, how about these amazing structures, shared with the community (and used with permission).

    That’s some impressive stuff indeed!

    What to do

    We are challenging you to build your own Tower of the Elephant in Conan Exiles. In the story, Conan is greeted with lions, spiders, treasures, and more. The details and how you’d like to present them is up to you! You can also take inspiration from the comic books of the same story. 

    Once your tower is complete you can take screenshots, video, or create your own comic. Just make sure it’s from within the Conan Exiles game. You don’t need to only include the tower; you can also include other aspects such as the garden surrounding it.

    Judging will be based on creativity; how will you construct the Tower of the Elephant? The panel of judges consist of Community Managers at Funcom, as well as the masterminds behind The Tower of the Elephant board game.
