Conan Exiles is Free This Weekend!

Huzzah! Conan Exiles is free on Steam from Thursday March 7th until Sunday March 11th! With the recent balance update, performance optimizations, the new VOIP and the rest of the changes we’ve rolled out, we felt there couldn’t be a better time to get into Conan Exiles. If you like the game and decide to buy it, you can get it for 50% off!

We’re expecting an influx of new players during the weekend. If you’re a regular player, give the newbies a warm welcome. Help them out. Show them the ropes.

And if you’re just now starting out on your journey through the Exiled Lands, we wish you welcome and hope you have a good time out there. Take things at your own pace and remember to watch out for the giant spiders.

New Things Have Come to Light

It’s exciting times over here at the Funcom office. We recently rolled out a huge patch for Conan Exiles with a massive amount of quality of life changes, gameplay updates, bug fixes, performance updates and and optimizations. New types of Purges have been added, a new world boss can now be found roaming the Frozen North, we rebalanced several gameplay areas and added in a completely new VOIP system (with mouth movements!)

This patch also added in more content for high level players. The Unnamed City has more challenging enemies and bosses, and you can now earn additional feat points by completing a certain task.

We’re continuously striving to improve the game in several ways. Our main focus recently has been to improve critical bugs and issues reported by the community, while also adding in new minor mechanics and gameplay elements to keep the game fresh.
