PC Update (15.09.2020) - Update 2.0: Isle of Siptah

Posted on September 15th, 2020 07:02 AM EST
Greetings, Exiles!

Today marks the day when we’re releasing the biggest expansion of content for Conan Exiles to date: Isle of Siptah!

With it, we’re also releasing a big update aimed at re-balancing, fine-tuning and improving some of our game systems to make gameplay more enjoyable and visceral.

We’re overhauling the temperature system by changing how building and clothing pieces protect your characters against the weather conditions, as well as relaying that information in-game in a more consistent and straightforward way. We’re also aiming at re-balancing progression by tweaking experience and resource gains.

On the combat side of things, we’re also adding a few changes to make your actions matter more, adjusting how healing items are used. We are also improving PVP settings for servers, adding not only options for each day of the week (instead of the old distinction of only weekdays or weekends), but also a new dynamic building damage system to expand the possibilities of player versus player combat and raiding beyond what was possible before.

In this update, we are also adding the possibility to load custom maps! This opens up the modding possibilities for Conan Exiles, allowing modders and players to expand the playground with new, community-made custom maps. We can’t wait to see in which ways our modding community expands the game in new ways not possible before.

We have also bundled in many exploit fixes, many general fixes including one that aims to prevent offline deaths based on temperature changes, a toggle for camera shake as well as many fixes to improve followers and world NPCs alike.



These are exciting times for Conan Exiles, and we’re extremely grateful to have all of you along for the ride.

Thanks for your ongoing support and feedback, 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.



Temperature system overhaul!



We have reworked how building pieces and clothing affect your character environmental protection, and also improved how temperature changes are relayed to you on screen. Gone are the soothing buff and insulation and temperature protection stats, and in come Heat and Cold protections and buffs. For more information on how this works, read here![forums.funcom.com]

Progression re-balance



We have normalized experience and gathering gains across the board, and making them be the new default. For how this affects you, either if you play solo, in an official server or run your own private server, read here![forums.funcom.com]

Combat and PVP changes!



We are changing how healing items are consumed and work to make combat more visceral and your actions more deliberate. PVP server settings have also experienced a facelift, with new customization options, as well as a new Dynamic Building Damage setting to customize offline raiding, or disable it altogether!

Two new building sets are also included: Flotsam and Stormglass. 3 new armor sets and new weapons, as well as the new rhino mount which will allow you to tame and ride a mighty new mount: the rhino!
