We’re releasing a hotfix to address an issue that arose with our latest Update and made VoIP non-functional, as well as a problem that caused the chest at Hannuman’s grotto not to provide the expected rewards.

Thanks again for your ongoing support.

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.



  • Offering a sacrifice in Hannuman’s Grotto should now provide a reward, as intended.


  • Fixed an issue with VoIP.

I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself. I’m Scott Junior the new Executive Producer for Conan Exiles. I joined the Exiles project in January and I’m excited to work with the development team and with the amazing community we have. There are a lot of exciting things planned for 2020 and I wanted to give you a quick glimpse into what the team is currently working on:

Follower Management UI
In today’s update we introduced the Follower Management UI. The goal of this system is to allow players to manage their Thralls in an efficient manner. You can now see where they are on the map, check their stats, rescue them if they end up in a non-retrievable location, and break bonds with them. This is the first step in our efforts to improve how Followers work in Conan Exiles. You can find more information about this feature here[www.conanexiles.com].

Follower Commands
Step two is our Followers Part 2 update. The goal of this patch is to allow players to have greater control of how their Thralls behave. It’s too early to give exact details on how this will work, but we are planning to add Thrall Commands, rework some of their base AI, and add additional default behaviors. We also want to make Thralls and Mounts work better together, which includes allowing an active Mount and Follower at the same time. This update is still early in the process, so some of the above may move to a future update.

We also want to make Thralls and Mounts work better together, which includes allowing an active Mount and Follower at the same time. This update is still early in the process, so some of the above may move to a future update.

Thrall Limiter
We will start a process of adding a Thrall Limiter feature to official servers. We have talked about this feature before[forums.funcom.com], but the short version is that on Official Servers players/clans will have a max number of followers allowed. Exact numbers are still being evaluated, but you can expect an in-depth explanation of exactly how the Limiter will work before it is released. In addition, you will receive at least 2 weeks notice so you can prepare properly.

TestLive Client
Changes are currently underway to how the TestLive Client is used. Updates will stay on the TestLive Client longer than they have before to give players time to give feedback, and to give us the chance to react to this feedback before the update is released. The Followers Management patch was on TestLive for three weeks and had four updates based on player testing/feedback. Thank you to everyone that has been involved in this round of testing, your input is appreciated!

Undermeshing
The team is working on several ways to combat Undermeshing and other exploits that allow players to build outside the intended area. Some of these changes are risky and may have unintended side effects, so we want to make sure our solution is tested thoroughly before it’s released on all platforms. TestLive Client currently has one enabled, so give it a try and let us know if anything isn’t working properly (or try to Undermesh on the Testlive Client and let us know if you still can!).

That’s it for now. We have a lot of other great things in development that we will be communicating soon!

We’re excited to bring to all of you a long-requested feature, the Followers Management system! From a new tab in your player menu you’ll now be able to get information and manage your followers at a glance, adding a few new QoL improvements as well. Check their stats, location in the map, break bonds or -new in this patch- rescue them. All of it from a new snappy screen we’re sure you’ll grow to love during your adventures in the Exiled Lands. We’ve improved on this feature thanks to all the feedback our community has been sharing with us during its Testlive period, with multiple fixes and refinements

We’re also bringing a slice of fixes and improvements to the game, starting with addressing some of the most reported issues with Thralls’ AI, extra improvements against undermesh locations as well as general bugfixing.

Thanks again for your ongoing support and feedback.

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.



New Follower Management System!

With great power comes great responsibility! Following up on our follower leveling system, we’re introducing the Follower Management System. From this screen you’ll have at a glance an overview over your army of followers, giving you extra control even from a distance! You can access it from a new tab in the player menu. From this new screen you will be able to…

View your current number of followers!



If you have the population cap enabled in your server or single player game, you will be able to check your current quota of followers as well as the maximum you’re allowed based on the server settings. Quick and easy!

Check stats, rescue and break bonds from a distance!



From the management screen you can now break bonds with those followers you’re no longer interested in keeping. Just click on them and select “Break Bond” from the menu. Much easier than having to deal with the emotional trauma of doing it face to face!
We have also added a new extra functionality! Tired of those pesky followers who chose to disappear in the middle of the night? You can now recall them to your position (as long as you’re within your claim) to keep them under control! However, this power comes with a few caveats. First, when they get rescued, they will lose their inventory and equipment. After you have used recall, you (or your clan) won’t be able to use it again for a certain period of time (cooldown), and those followers who were engaged in combat recently will not be able to be recalled until a certain time has passed. Best of all, both timers are customizable! (via ini edit at the moment)

Locate your followers in the map!




Similar to the current feature where you can see your fellow clan mates in the map, you can now also keep an overview on where your followers are at any moment. Off by default, you can select which one of your thralls or pets you want to see located in the map. No more hide and seek!


  • New Follower Management System!
  • AI fixes!
  • Exploit fixes!
  • …and more!




  • Fixed a number of crashing issues.


  • Additional tweaks to the issue where players would get randomly killed when interacting with certain meshes or reaching certain locations.
  • Fixed an exploit regarding building pieces.
  • Deployed measures against undermeshing.


  • Follower management system! Command and track your followers with new and improved tools.
    • You now can break bonds with followers remotely.
    • You can now recall followers to your position if you’re within your claim. This feature has a cooldown and restrictions to avoid possible abuse.
    • You can now see your followers on the map. You can select which followers you want to be displayed this way and which ones you don’t (unticked by default).
  • Added the following ini settings to control the new functionality introduced with the Followers Management System (to be added in .SavedServerSettings.ini):
    • EnableFollowerRescueOnLandClaimOnly=True/False. If true, players can rescue followers ONLY on land they (or their clan) own
    • EnableFollowerRescueInBuildExclusionZone=False/True. If false, players cannot rescue followers in Build Exclusion Zones.
    • FollowerRescueCooldown=3600. Defines (in seconds) how often players can rescue followers (cooldown is shared between clan members).
    • DamageCooldownBeforeRescue=600. Amount of seconds where followers cannot be rescued if player or target follower took any damage.


  • Flinthead arrows no longer require feathers to craft.


  • The effect of Set’s Tongue and Mitra’s Justice no longer persists until logging out.
  • Fixed an issue that would cause armor penetration to stack on consecutive bow shots.


  • Fixed an issue that would cause the Rhino King not to retaliate against attacks.
  • Fixed an issue with stationary NPC awareness that would cause them to be unresponsive if they had previously rotated.
  • NPCs should now properly switch weapons, even to melee, if their throwing weapon runs out or their shields break.
  • Resolved an issue where thralls would sometimes prefer unarmed attacks despite having a weapon available in their inventory.
  • Thralls that switched from melee to ranged or viceversa should no longer remain in a contemplative, unresponsive state, wondering what’s the point of life or if pineapple belongs on pizza (it does).
  • Fixed an issue where thralls would not follow their attack rotations and did no combos.


  • Fixed an issue where the Purge would fail to find an appropriate target if the player had not been in LOD range of a qualifying construction.


  • Sprinting should no longer persist after mounting and dismounting a horse under certain circumstances.
  • Torches can now be equipped while traversing water bodies on a horse.


  • Fixed an issue where mounted combat animations could be interrupted.


  • In between whipping sessions, our #spellchekker team managed to correct a number of mispelled NPC names.
  • Fixed a number of French localization issues for certain items and stats. #le-spellchekker
  • Fixed an issue where the “Password Protected” prompt would disappear when leaving a session with vanity camera active.
  • Added follower management tab to player menu.
  • Followers location is now displayed in the map (off by default).
  • Cleared up some redundant information in pets’ info screen.
  • The last option in gameplay settings should no longer be blocked out of screen boundaries.


  • Fixed an issue where humanoid NPCs would continuously play drunk emote animations and sound effects when idle. #idleresponsibly


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.]]>

We’re starting the year with a new patch focusing on bringing many fixes into the game, addressing exploits, general and UI issues among other things. We’re also laying down the first layer of quality fixes for NPCs and followers, which will be the focus for our next patch in a few weeks.

With this patch we will also enable on official servers a feature introduced with the December update which limits the visibility of players in the player list. By default, players will be listed as invisible unless they choose to participate in chat. At that moment, they will be visible in the player list for the next 5 minutes.

Thanks again for your ongoing support and feedback.

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.

We’re releasing a hotfix before vacations that addresses some pending issues reported after the last patch. Please note: Although the keybinding fix should prevent this issue from happening, those who were affected by the double keybinding issue prior to this hotfix should restore their key settings to default.

We’re also doubling decay timers on all official servers for a month so you can all enjoy these upcoming days with your loved ones.

Also remember that we have an ongoing screenshot contest where you can win some sweet goodies. You can read all about it in its announcement thread in our forums[forums.funcom.com].

Thank you for your ongoing support and have a lovely end of the year!

  • Fixed some situations in which it would be possible to refill arrow stacks with different stat values.



  • Thralls and pets would on some instances lose their progress on a server restart. This should now be fixed.



  • Fixed an issue that would cause two actions to be bound to the same key when changing keybindings. Those previously affected by this issue should restore their keybindings to default after patching to get this change applied.

Ahh, December. The time for giving, maybe decorating a dying tree with shiny things and leaving it up until March, lighting candles and setting your enemy's house on fire for warmth on a cold day, and siting upon King Conan's knee telling him what you want.

Besides those traditions, what better way to celebrate than watching your favorite Christmas/Holiday movies? Yes, Nightmare Before Christmas counts. IT'S A CHRISTMAS MOVIE DAMMIT.


We want you to recreate a scene, a building, person, iconic item, whatever from your favorite holiday movie. You could build the town of Whoville, make a character resemble Scrooge in his dark cold mansion, a screenshot of Tim Allen killing Santa, or so on! The judges (community managers) will judge based on creativity and how well it compares to the movie.


The contest will run from today until December 31st, 2019. No more entries will be accepted after this date. The winners will be announced on January 7th, 2020.


1 Grand Prize Winner
Year 2 Season Pass AND all previous DLCs ($90.00 cash value)
OR
Paid 6 months time of a/your private server

9 Runner Ups
One choice of DLC (season pass does not qualify)($10 cash value)


  • Must be a movie set during the holiday season or have a scene in which it is present. Elf, A Christmas Story, Jack Frost, Home Alone, and such may come to mind. But don't forget about Die Hard, Edward Scissorhands, and Gremlins too! It can also be a movie not well known or well received or even one from a different country.
  • You can send them in any format. Screenshots, videos, gifs, are allowed. You could take screenshots and put them in comic form to act out a scene from your chosen movie. Or do it instead through a video. Or send pictures of your recreated building. These are just some examples.

  • To make sure your email is for the contest, please be sure this is your subject line: Conan Exiles Holiday Contest

We went over community feedback regarding the latest update and discussed it with the rest of the team.

It was clear that many of you felt strongly about the newest movement changes. We also agree that we didn’t leave enough room for testing, which is something we’ll take a closer look at next year and work on improving.

The designers feel that the momentum feature is an essential part of the mount experience. So while we’re keeping it in, we also made some adjustments based on your feedback.

This change is part of today’s patch. Please check out the adjustments and let us know how they feel. We do appreciate all of you and thank you for your ongoing support and for being part of our community.



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.

[h2]Separate TestLive Product on Steam[/h2]

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.[forums.funcom.com]]]>
CONAN EXILES IS FREE TO PLAY ON STEAM THIS WEEKEND! https://conan-exiles.com/blog/998/conan-exiles-is-free-to-play-on-steam-this-weekend/ https://conan-exiles.com/blog/998/conan-exiles-is-free-to-play-on-steam-this-weekend/ Thu, 12 Dec 2019 19:03 CET
We’re excited to announce that Conan Exiles will be free to play on Steam this weekend, starting from Thursday, December 12, until Monday, December 16!

This is an excellent time to jump in and experience Conan Exiles at its best. We’ve added a ton of new features and mechanics to the game since launch.

https://store.steampowered.com/app/440900/Conan_Exiles/

With Update 38, our most important update since launch, we added mounts and mounted combat, a highly requested feature by the Conan Exiles community. You can now saddle up and ride a horse into the sunset or engage your foes from atop your mighty steed using swords, pikes, bows, and the newly implemented lances.



We’ve also added a leveling system to pets and thralls, making them grow stronger as they fight alongside you. Complimentary to that, we released our latest DLC pack, Riders of Hyboria, which includes new placeables, armor pieces, weapons and building pieces that let you build your own stables.

If you decide you want to buy the game to continue playing after the free weekend, you can get it for 60% off the full price! If you already own the game you can top up on any missing DLCs with a 20% discount for our previously released DLC packs* (except Riders of Hyboria).

We wish you a fantastic free weekend with Conan Exiles!

The Conan Exiles Dev Team]]>
