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.

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.
