Hail and well met, Exiles!

We’re releasing a patch that includes fixes and adjustments for various crashes, the friends list and invitations, and healing wrap regeneration.

Along with this patch, Avatars have been enabled (for real this time). Please also note that beginning last week, decay is doubled to 14 days for the Summer. You can read more about this in our announcement here.

Please remember that updates can mess with your installed mods. We suggest taking a backup of your current database before updating to any new patch if you have mods installed.

  • Fixed a number of crashing issues.
  • Fixed case where “online play is restricted” warning message would show after leaving a listen server.

  • Localization to text in the Friend List added.
  • Fixes to friend invites where invitation would disappear during the game’s title. Also fixed an issue where invite would not be removed once accepting.

  • Healing Wraps will not longer break their gameplay effect on movement
  • Adjusted vertical land claim in certain areas that prevented NPCs from spawning.
  • Server ping will now refresh properly in the server browser.
  • The mute option functions once again.

Bit on the nose, eh? Swords sharpened, muscles glistening, Conan Exiles was ready to make the jump to the Epic Games Store today, arriving with the fanfare of a spot in Epic’s free game rotation. Pity, for the old warrior has been knocked back by a mighty blow. Funcom’s sword-swinging survival sandbox has been pushed out of its new home indefinitely – and when it arrives, it won’t be marching for free.

Greetings Exiles!

The time has come! Avatars are coming back to PC official servers, so get ready to engage in new besieging tactics by summoning your favorite deity and striking your enemy where it hurts.

We’ve released fixes and improvements to the avatar system that address some of its major issues, so improve your altars, get your high tier priests ready and prepare to smash your way through your enemies’ defenses with either Ymir, Mitra, Derketo, Set, Yog or Jhebbal Sag. Each avatar brings its own play-style of destruction, so use them wisely and tactically adapt to the dynamic conditions of each battlefield!

We are planning to enable avatars, on all PC official servers, on Thursday, July 2nd.
Please note that this change might apply after each server has restarted and it might be delayed on some servers depending on network conditions.

We are also doubling decay timers on all official servers. Summer time is here, and you might have plans to spend some quality time with your loved ones. On July 2nd, decay timers will be doubled to 14 days. We will announce at least one week in advance when this change will be reverted.

We hope you have an excellent time during this summer, either in the Exiled lands or outside! Stay safe!

Greetings Exiles,

We’re deploying an emergency hotfix aiming to take core of some of the critical issues that have arisen after Update 41. In particular, these fixes should address the problem with “lost characters” some players have experienced after playing with the new update. We have implemented measures to prevent this from happening again, and we have added a system to merge the old character with any profile that lost access to it even if those who got affected by it proceeded with the creation of a new character.

We have also addressed a number of crashing issues related to Windows 7, connectivity and logs, as well as optimized some settings to mitigate some of the stuttering problems reported by some players.

With this hotfix, we have also ironed out some remaining issues with the server browser, such as servers with "???" ping (they will now just show it temporarily while they're getting pinged) or listings that would cause a connection failure.

We would like to apologize for the frustration these issues have caused, and we would like to thank profusely all of you who helped us track down these issues by sending feedback and helping us test out some of these fixes.

Thanks for all the support, and stay safe.

Please remember that updates can mess with your installed mods. We suggest taking a backup of your current database before updating to any new patch if you have mods installed.

  • Fixed a number stuttering issues.
  • Fixed a crash that would occur when starting the game without internet connection.
  • Fixed a crash related to a log file.
  • Fixed a number of Windows 7 game crashes.
  • Optimized telemetry rates.

  • Fixed an issue where some players would be forced to recreate their character despite having one in that server. This should restore access to the old character for those who lost access to it, but access to the new duplicate is no longer possible.
  • Fixed a number of issues resulting in the server browser not showing correct information or that would prevent correct access to a server. Servers might still momentarily show "???" latency while they're being pinged, but it will update as soon as the process ends.

Greetings Exiles!

Today we’re releasing our new update, focused on re-balancing a few aspects of the game. We’ve focused on followers and world bosses, making thralls slightly less of a powerhouse, but also toning down bosses’ health pools accordingly. The goal of these changes is to increase player power compared to Followers. We’ll continue to look at ways to re-balance the game, and we can’t wait to show you what’s coming in the near future.

With this update we have also fixed many of the issues that affected the avatar system in the game, fixing some exploits that abused them as well as re-balancing some of its core mechanics. They are still not enabled in official servers, but we will let you know in advance once we flip the switch during the upcoming weeks.

Additional to these changes we have also implemented the Funcom Live Services into the game that aims to create a smoother user experience while playing online, as well as removed Denuvo from the game. And together with all these changes, we have also bundled fixes for crashes, server optimizations, some exploit fixes, fixes to Argossean pieces, gave the Abyssal Remnant a wake up call and much more!

Thank you all for your ongoing support and feedback. Stay safe!

Separate TestLive Product on Steam

We heard your input regarding the inconvenience with having to switch back and forth between the main game and our TestLive servers. To make it easier for you and because we really value your testing and feedback, we added a separate product for the TestLive server on Steam.

If you own Conan Exiles on Steam, you should now see a separate Product called “Conan Exiles - Testlive Client” in your library which gives you the option to install an additional instance of the game specifically for the TestLive servers. Please be aware that this will prompt you for a full additional installation.

We are aware that not everyone wants install or has space for two full installations. For those of you who don’t want to play through the additional TestLive Client, you can still access the TestLive servers through our old method.
