PC Anniversary Patch (08.05.2019) - Sunken City, Capitals revamp, Witch Doctor feat and more!

Hey everybody!

We have a new patch introducing new content into the game!

This week we’re celebrating the one-year anniversary of the full release of Conan Exiles. To mark the occasion, we’re rolling out the Anniversary Update! This update has been available on our Testlive branch for a couple of weeks and now we’re finally ready to roll it out to the live branch.

This free update adds a whole new dungeon to the game, a new mini-dungeon, new types of pets, and a full revamp of several NPC settlements and cities. This revamp includes population changes, new bosses, and new loot and rewards for those of you brave enough to challenge these new foes.

Thank you community for your continued support and your feedback and suggestions. Most of these changes and additions stem directly from your input! And as always, all this new content is free and available to everyone that owns the main game!


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.

The Sunken City

The Watcher above be vigilant, the Captain below be ready. The Redeemer will tear the veil of time asunder and escape their prison. When they come, blood will flow. When they come, blood will flow.

Something beckons from deep below the waves. Something trapped. Something ancient. Will you allow this ancient evil to be released, or will you resist the pull of the deep?

The Sunken City is a brand-new dungeon intended for high-level players to test their mettle against the corrupting evil that lurks within. You travel to the city via a boat found in Dagon’s Embrace, and upon arrival a strange and mysterious voice starts echoing through your head. It is the voice of Dagon, the Deep One, who is trying to tear through the membrane of reality and unleash an age of horror on the known world.

New pets!


You can now tame Frost Giants and scorpions. There’s also a new Feat, “Witch Doctor”, which lets you summon Wights and skeletons to your side!

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.

Thanks for the update.

Just some observations though on a quick run through the volcano.

Human NPC corpses are still glitching out after you kill them and disappearing. worse than before this patch and this was reported many times on testlive.

why were some of the NPC spawn locations moved into the gas area? some of them were just moved a few feet from being outside the gas areas into the gas areas. this makes no sense.

Since the patch to version 1.4 on PS4, I cannot see any servers! I think it’s finding servers just not displaying them. Help!

If I change the combat mode filter to All it then displays.

Apparently one of the bugs from testlive followed it over when killing Npcs they are going under the dirt if you know where they died you can loot them but if fighting multiples you may miss corpse or knocked out thrall under the mesh. This is on a PVE-C Official server.

Funny you. Created a topic about the imbalance in the resources of building blocks. Triangular and square. They didn’t react, the amount of steel was not reduced, the tree also (as in other types). But they increased the amount of ice. Yeah man)
