Conan Exiles newest updates on Steam have looked to expand and stabilise some of the game mechanics which are currently available in the game.
- Optimisations to help reduce server lag.
- Fixed certain cases where altars would disappear after a server restart. If you still encounter this issue, please let us know!
- Fixed connecting to dedicated servers when a LAN server is running on the network.
- The ghostly warrior to the southwest of the Exiled Lands has passed on to the next realm.
The Conan Exiles map of new update plans has also been revealed, including some big changes to the game’s current server layout.
Funcom was forced to shutdown their official servers following their partner being unable to keep up with demand.
It’s easy to see how this has happened, Funcom have confirmed that the game has sold more than 320,000 copies so far, and that’s without it being available on Xbox One and PS4.
“We are deeply humbled and very grateful for the initial success of Conan Exiles,” Funcom CEO Rui Casais said in a statement.
“Funcom has gone through some challenging times in recent years and seeing the game we have poured so much time and effort into gain this amount of traction so quickly is very invigorating for everyone who works here.
“This is just the start of the Early Access adventure and we will do whatever it takes to make sure Conan Exiles turns into a fully fledged game that has something to offer new and old fans of both Conan and survival games.”
The recent situation concerning Conan Exiles servers has also changed, with Funcom confirming that fans would soon see a boost in choice.
“We are in the process of bringing online both new, clean servers, as well as servers that have the old databases and the buildings, items, and progress of everyone who played on those servers,” Funcom confirmed in a statement.
“That way you can choose if you want to go back where you left off or start afresh.
“As we said earlier, we are bringing the US servers up today and will be bringing EU servers online tomorrow, with other territories to follow.
“You should already be seeing new, fresh US servers come up now, and you are free to jump on and play at any time. However, we ran into a few snags when bringing up servers with the old databases. We could fix that by simply wiping the databases clean, but that would mean those of you who played on those servers would lose all your belongings and all your progress.
“As such, we have decided to bring those servers down again and our coders are now working hard on fixing that issue so we can bring them up again as soon as possible – with all your items and all your progress intact.”
Conan Exiles, the new open-world survival game, is currently in Steam early access on PC, although Funcom have confirmed that it will be released on Xbox One in spring 2017 and will eventually arrive on PS4 sometime later.
A new interview with Funcom provided an official Conan Exiles PS4 update, as well as more on the impact the PS4 Pro and Xbox One Scorpio may have.
Speaking to Wccftech, Funcom’s Chief Technical Officer Frederick Richardson, revealed: “At the moment our focus is on the PC and Xbox One versions of the game, but we are planning on making a PS4 version later.”
Conan Exiles is estimated to be in Early Access for less than a year, meaning the Funcom team could soon set their sights on bringing the game to PS4.
It’s still unclear how far in development CE will need to be before Sony allows it to be launched, ARK Survival Evolved was recently revealed but will not be finished until Spring 2017.
