Greetings Exiles!

As we always say, your feedback is extremely important to us, and we’re always looking to improve our ways of making sure it’s heard.

As the team works hard on what’s coming in 2024, we want to hear your thoughts on Chapter 3.

We read as much online feedback as we can across all our channels, but player surveys are a great framework to get opinions on specific topics, while also getting feedback from people who do not usually leave comments.

Your thoughts genuinely make a difference to the ongoing development of Conan Exiles, so if you want us to hear you loud and clear, please take a few minutes to go through our player survey:

We plan on doing many more surveys like this and are excited to see the results.

Slay and Survive, Exiles

Greetings Exiles:

It’s 2024 and time we looked back at some achievements and challenges for Conan Exiles in 2023. Your ongoing support drives our efforts to develop fresh content for the game. Let’s look back at the year’s highlights and some of the hurdles we’re determined to overcome.

Five Years of Adventure 2023 was a big deal here as we celebrated the 5th Launch Anniversary of Conan Exiles on May 8. This marked half a decade since we’ve been developing content and playing this game together. Our journey, including our Steam Early Access launch, now spans over six years – a testament to the game’s enduring appeal and your continued support.

Switching to the Age system back in 2022 was a huge decision, and this past year has shown the advantages of constant releases and a regular cadence.

In 2023, we wrapped up Age of Sorcery with its 3rd chapter and released Age of War – Chapter 1 along with its 2nd and 3rd Chapters. You’ve tested your skills against Kurak as well as the Stygian Legion, and you’ve expanded your settlements with Clan Hoards, Emblems, and now Taverns. You’ve bolstered your defenses with Golems and guard stations so you could withstand the full wrath of revamped Purges, and even took the fight to the enemy in the Siege of al-Merayah.

This amount of content, coupled with updates to existing core features like Combat and the Journey System, has all been possible to develop and add to the game for free thanks to the Age and Chapter system.

This community’s creativity and passion were remarkable in 2023, and the team appreciates all you do immensely. We’re thrilled to roll out our new Creator Program and would like to thank our amazing content creators who joined up and made videos, guides, streams, and communities that shape the Exiled Lands. The Mystic Masterpieces Art Contest and Yogtoberfest Halloween Screenshot Contest showcased some amazing talent, and we’re constantly in awe of all the spirit and dedication of our modding community. You’re all an inspiration!

Despite these successes, we faced some challenges as well. We recognize that some of our releases have not been as smooth as we would like and affected your experience. Recently, the launch of Age of War Chapter 3 was hampered by some significant issues that needed urgent attention. This is not acceptable, and we are implementing steps to ensure each update meets your expectations, such as managing scope more effectively and improved testing procedures.

As we continue the journey into 2024, our commitment to you is as strong as ever: For one, performance and optimization is a constant focus, and we are committed to keeping a focus on console performance and game optimization.

To improve our communication further, we are also starting a new initiative to run player surveys after each Chapter release, the first of which arriving next week.

We have tons more new content and features planned, as well as Quality of Life improvements you’ve been asking for, to ensure that Conan Exiles continues to be the game you love and the community you can never get enough of.

We can’t wait to share all this with you over the coming months, beginning with the Age of War – Chapter 4, arriving in Q1 2024.

Thank you for your continued support, enthusiasm, and feedback. Here’s to an even more adventurous 2024!

Warm Regards

Greetings Exiles, 

The Age of War – Chapter 3 Update is here! The time to truly test your steel has come.  

Will you bring down the walls of your enemy or break yourself against them? 

The Siege of al-Merayah 

For the first time, PvE players will know the thrill of razing what their enemies have built to the ground. Stygia has consolidated their might into a fully destructible fortress built atop the ruins of al-Merayah. In the top chamber of the central keep, surrounded by his ill-gotten riches, the Commander of the Stygian invasion awaits your challenge. How you reach him is up to you! 

Open Your Tavern 

Craft the bar counter, rescue the barkeep, and open a tavern where legends are born. Patrons from all over the Exiled Lands will visit, and for the right price, they will even follow you. The barkeep has their ear to the ground, and knows how to reach people. Speak to them to summon important contacts like Isscar the Sellsword, who will provide valuable items for sale. 

Battle Pass & Bazaar Cosmetics 

New cosmetic building pieces, decorations, pets, armors, weapons, emotes, emblems and more have arrived in the Chapter 3 Battle Pass and Bazaar! Rule your own wooden longhouse with the expanded Aesir building set, and make your tavern unique with new Vanir and Yamatai-themed decorations. Before employing your battle tactics in the field, test the sharpness of your wit with the massive new chessboard. 


Conan frowns upon flimsy paper posters! But Displates... that’s another story entirely. In the event of an attack, you can tear this metal poster from the wall, make quick work of your enemies with a mighty jab and bash, and then – simply place it back on the wall with its magnetic pads. 

That’s right, Conan Displates are here, and available right now! Check out the selection on Displate’s Official Website. We plan on adding more designs in the future, so let us know which ones you’d love to see! 

Slay and Survive, Exiles! 

  • NPCs and Followers that swap from Ranged attacks (bows) to Melee may have their rotation break.
    • This is much less frequent with NPCs
    • In the event that their animation breaks, there is no current known workaround. But it will be resolved on server restart.
    • To avoid this issue, make sure to set your archer thralls to prefer ranged weapons/do not give them a melee weapon. And do not give a ranged weapon to your melee thralls.
    • There is a fix for this issue coming in the next release.
  • Players, NPCs, and Followers will rarely enter into an unintended animation state where they appear like a cowboy ready to quickdraw
    • The only currently known workaround for players is to enter the jumping state
    • Followers and NPCs will be stuck in this state until server restart
    • While in this state, characters are unable to attack, as their animations are locked.
  • King Ctesphon is currently misspelled as King Ctsephon.
  • Purge Demolisher enemy NPCs do more damage than intended to structures/doors
  • Performance in the area of The Siege of Al-Merayah Raid Base is lower on previous generation consoles, optimizations are ongoing to increase performance


The Siege of Al-Merayah!

  • The Stygian invasion has occupied The Ruins of Al-Merayah! A new fully destructible base has been erected in the area of al-Merayah filled with Stygian invaders
  • Use the new Battering Ram and assorted other methods (explosives, trebuchets, climbing, whatever you can imagine) to infiltrate the base and combat the Stygian army and their Commander!
  • The Battering Ram can be found inside of the Stygian al-Merayah base, as well as in Isscar’s store after he is freed from the Purge and hired from the Barkeeper!
  • Once the Commander has been defeated and all players have left the immediate proximity of the base, the entirety of the Structure and encounters will reset allowing the experience to be played through again!

Tavern and Barkeeper!

  • The Bar building piece is now unlockable from the Knowledge Tab at Level 20!
  • Free a Barkeeper from captivity in the Purge and bring him back to your Settlement as a Thrall!
  • Assign the Barkeeper to the Bar to act as a new vendor of both items and special Patron Contacts that can be hired temporarily in your base (Currently Isscar the Sellsword can be hired once freed from the Purge, look for more Special Patron Contracts to come in future updates!)
  • Once the Barkeeper is manning the Bar, randomized Patrons will begin to visit your Tavern and all nearby seats/chairs will become available for Patrons to visit and occupy
  • Some of these Patrons can be persuaded to join you as a Thrall in exchange for some gold after speaking to them should you desire their services

Misc Updates

  • New Purge Items
  • Siege Cauldrons can now have Thralls slotted into them to automate their combat functionality

Conan Exiles - Jellyfoosh
“I’m more use behind a bar than in battle,” she had said.

It was no lie. Now, your tavern bustles with life, serving patrons from the farthest reaches of the Exiled Lands. These are rugged folk, who have seen and survived more than most. This place is a haven from the war, but for the right price, they would follow you into the jaws of Set himself.

On December 14, your adventures in Age of War – Chapter 3 will begin, so we want to take this opportunity to give you some insight into one of the major new features we are launching in the update – Taverns!

Pour yourself a tankard, sit back, and read on.

Where Adventures Begin

It may be a trope, but it is one we love. In fantasy, taverns and inns are often a nexus. They are a place where information, rumors, gold, and people converge and mingle in a chaotic dance of brimming potential. Whether the mood be brooding, festive, or hostile, taverns are where legends are born.

This is the energy we brought into creating this feature in Conan Exiles. Overall, we want to add more content that makes the world feel more alive and reactive to the player.

Setting up the Tavern

To open your tavern you will need two things: a Barkeeper, and a bar counter. First, you must rescue the Zamorian Barkeeper from a purge camp. Keep in mind that it may take a few tries, because the Barkeeper is not guaranteed to appear in every purge. Speak to them and they will teach you the secret and ancient art of building a bar counter.

Craft the bar, place it in your base, and the Barkeeper can begin to work their magic. Over time, patrons will start to appear automatically. The more chairs and benches you create and place in the tavern, the more people will come to fill them. They may even enjoy a drink or two. Or ten.

Note that the area around the bar counter which becomes designated as your tavern extends upward as well as around the counter, meaning you can have a tavern with several floors, should you wish to. As long as you have seats available, people will eventually come to fill them.

Most importantly, some of these patrons are not just there to sample your drinks and hang out. For a fair price in gold, certain patrons are eager to accept work. For now, they are limited to fighters, bearers and performers – followers who can be placed on the ground instead of inside a crafting bench.

On occasion, particularly exceptional patrons will appear, whose services you would be remiss to ignore.

Your followers can now hang out in your tavern if you want, where they will behave accordingly, toasting and swigging drinks. Simply open the radial wheel, select “stand guard”, and slot them into one of the green outlines which appear on benches and stools.

What’ll it be?

Part of The Barkeeper’s job is to know people. In a tavern, lips are often loose, and everyone trusts the one serving the drinks. One way or another, information will reach the Barkeeper. As a result, they know how to reach people.

If you speak to the Barkeeper you will be able to open the brand-new Enlist Contacts menu. In Chapter 3, once you have rescued Isscar the Sellsword from a purge camp, you will be able to call upon him to access his shop on demand, full of items that are particularly useful in both purges and the new Siege of al-Merayah.

For now, Isscar is the only person on the list, but we are incredibly excited about the opportunities to expand this feature in the future, especially in relation to what we mentioned earlier about making the world feel more alive.

For example, this allows us to place people out in the wilderness that you assist, rescue, or meet, and have them appear on the list after that as a potential ally with unique services. This is what we mean when we say the tavern is a nexus. It gives you even more reasons both to go out and explore the world, and to return to home and hearth.

Make it Yours

With Chapter 3, we are introducing a lot of decorations to the tavern through the Battle Pass and Bazaar. We want you to have a lot of choice when it comes to the way your tavern looks. These include the Vanir Tavern Bundle in the Battle Pass and the Yamatai Tavern bundle in the Bazaar (available from Dec 28 – Jan 10).

Thank you for joining us for this look into taverns. Age of War – Chapter 3 arrives on December 14! In case you missed it, have a look at our blog on the Siege of al-Merayah, the other major feature coming in the update.

We can’t wait to see the kind of taverns you will build, Exiles. No doubt you will make them sing with the legends of your exploits!

Slay and Survive, Exiles!
Conan Exiles - Jellyfoosh
Atop the ruins of al-Merayah, a great fortress has risen. Greed and decadence swell within its iron-barbed walls. From this powerful seat, the Stygian Empire rests its boot upon the throat of the Exiled Lands. A boot poised to crush.

In Age of War – Chapter 3, you will show Stygia your true mettle. Gather your band and return al-Merayah to ruins.

Today, we're excited to give you an overview of this brand-new feature coming on December 14.

The Rise and Fall of Civilizations

Before getting into the mechanics of the Siege of al-Merayah, we would like to briefly share some conceptual background to this feature and its naming. As you may know, a core theme in Robert E. Howard’s Conan stories is the rise and fall of civilizations. Time is a pendulum that swings back and forth from barbarism, to decadence, and back again, as new societies are built over the ruins of the past.

If you have played another of our games, The Secret World, you may have recognized the name al-Merayah as one of the villages you visit in that game. We like to think that the al-Merayah in The Secret World is a future incarnation of the ruins in Conan Exiles. Pre-Chapter 3, it was ancient ruins, and soon, Stygia will have built it back into decadence.

It is your job, Exile, to topple it and hurl them back into barbarism, beginning the cycle anew.

A Destructible Overworld Dungeon

One of the purposes of the Siege of al-Merayah is to give PvE players the opportunity to experience the joy of reducing structures to rubble. The entire fortress behaves in the same way as player-built structures, aside from some tweaked health values. You will actually find that all the pieces used in the construction of this fortress are available to build with.

Your goal is to reach and then defeat Bakt-Nimlot, the Commander of the invading Stygian force. But between you stand walls, gates, and soldiers. How you get past them is entirely up to you. Foul sorcery has ever been the fear of those who place their trust in stone and mortar. Soar over the walls on the wings of bat demons or form bridges of ice to carry you over.

If you shun such corrupted practices, you can seek more earthly means to bring down the walls. Build trebuchets, detonate explosive jars, or, for the first time, wield a battering ram. These are all very efficient in bringing down structures, and have now found a use outside of PvP.

The defenders of the keep will not stand idly by. Archers will pelt you with arrows from atop the crenelated walls and elite soldiers will engage you in close combat once you gain access to the courtyard. Explore the fortress to find both valuable loot and useful tools to aid in your assault.

In the highest chamber of the inner keep, surrounded by riches plundered from the Exiled Lands, you will face the Stygian Commander. On your way up the keep, every step must be paid for in blood. Defeat Bakt-Nimlot, and you will be rewarded with high-level loot and a trove of gold to add to your hoard.

Threads of Gold

When we design new content for Conan Exiles, especially within the context of an Age, we always aim to tie everything together, both narratively and mechanically.

In the case of the Siege of al-Merayah, the gold you loot at the end can be added to your hoard (introduced in Chapter 1), which fuels the cycle of purges (introduced in Chapter 2) and can be used to purchase various useful items such as mercenary banners or to hire followers in the tavern (also coming in Chapter 3).

The Siege of al-Merayah is an end-game activity, designed for high level characters. Bringing followers is good, and bringing friends is even better. The more of you there are, the more manageable the difficulty will be.

Building Foundations

Currently, the siege only exists in the Exiled Lands, but we see this feature as a very strong foundation which we can expand upon for future content.

We hope you’re ready to take on the might of the Stygian Empire. Look out for our next blog, where we will showcase the other major feature coming in Chapter 3 – the ability to open your very own tavern.

Age of War – Chapter 3 begins on December 14.

As the Steam Awards glimmer on the horizon, we raise our weapons in salute. Barbarians (and foul sorcerers), we call upon you to vote for us in the “Labor of Love” category.

Conan Exiles entered Early Access in the ancient past of 2017. For six years, we have continued to work towards realizing the great potential of this world, and with each update, we’ve honed our edge.

Learning. Growing. Slaying and surviving.

So today, as we approach the release of Chapter 3 in the Age of War, Conan Exiles is stronger than ever before.

These six years have been a true odyssey, so if you’d like to go on a stroll through the mists of time with us, then venture onto our website’s updates page. There you can see a full timeline of every update released for Conan Exiles so far.

We would never have gotten this far without all of you by our side, nor could we be this excited about the future.

Thank you.

If you want to take advantage of the 20% discount on Crom Coins, you can get the currently available Nemedian Library bundle and the Turanian Settler bundle with its ornate gold-embellished architecture.

On the other hand, if you have your eye on the upcoming Age of War – Chapter 3, you might want to get your coins during the discount and hold on to them until after the release on December 14! In Chapter 3 a ton of new cosmetics become available, including the expanded Aesir building set, and a giant chess set complete with huge game pieces.

This is the biggest discount that all editions of the game, as well as the Isle of Siptah expansion, have ever enjoyed. If ever you wanted to pull in a friend and show them the thrill of blood, battle, and driving your enemies in the wheel of pain, then the time has come.

Slay and survive, Exiles
