PC Update 2.4 (22.04.2021) New Siptah Biomes and lighting improvements, Zath, QoL and more! Oh my!

IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING MODS

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.



Read it in our blog.


Greetings, Exiles!

As we steadily advance towards the full launch of Isle of Siptah, here’s our next big content drop for the game. Update 2.4 expands the available land mass on Siptah to the South, with three new biomes full of new sights, adventures and dangers for experienced Siptah players and newcomers alike.

On the east side, the Isle of Dawn, a massive open area hosting rich wildlife and the ruins of an old capital of the Grey Ones, with a secret lurking within its confines. On the west side, the Isle of Dusk, the soot-covered volcanic grounds once inhabited by the First Men and now only hosting the remnants of this once-proud civilization. And in the center, the floodlands, an in-between area with tall cliff formations and lush and overgrown plains that will be prime locations for builders and adventurers alike.
These new lands continue the work established in our previous update, adding to the Isle of Siptah 47 new NPC camps of varying sizes with repeatable activities, trainers and surprises.

To couple the release of these new biomes, we have also worked on a series of optimizations and improvements to the lighting and skyboxes of Siptah, to make these new landmasses shine like never before on Conan Exiles!

Another new addition coming with this update is a new religion! Zath the Spider-God joins the pool of available religions in Conan Exiles both on the Exiled Lands and the Isle of Siptah. Summon Zath and a swarm of its children to bring terror and destruction to your enemies! New NPCs, placeables and items have been added to the game for those who chose Zath as their deity.

Coming soon in the near future is also the new Server Character Transfer feature! With this new option you will be able to transfer your character between Official servers, between unofficial servers, or from an Official server to an unofficial server keeping your name and appearance, level and all items in your backpack. Even between the Exiled Lands and Isle of Siptah!
(Please note: This is currently a W.I.P. feature and it’s not active in this initial release - we are still working on and testing this feature. To transfer to or from the Isle of Siptah, ownership of the DLC Expansion pack is required)

Along with these new additions, we have also worked on a series of oft-requested improvements and rebalancing aimed at PVP combat as well as other systems. Tons of new performance optimizations, a myriad of animation improvements and many UI and quality of life additions, along with many other fixes, complete this package. Update 2.4 is one of the most ambitious content updates we have released to date, and it would not have been possible without your passionate feedback and support.

Thank you for your ongoing support, and stay safe!


highlights

Three new biomes for the Isle of Siptah!

The Isle of Dawn, the Isle of Dusk and the floodlands are now available in the Isle of Siptah! These three new biomes are populated by dozens of new NPC camps, two new factions (The Grey Ones and The First Men), new activities and new loot!


Improved lighting and skyboxes on the Isle of Siptah!

New lighting effects and improved colors, along with many optimizations, have been added to the Isle of Siptah skyboxes, to make your adventures through the new biomes truly memorable! The difference is… night and day!


New religion!

Here comes Zath, mighty Zath! Destroys whatever with an avatar wrath. Spins a web any size. Catches foes, in Conan Exiles. Look out! Here comes the Spider-god!
Zath joins the religious fray in Conan Exiles, both on the Exiled Lands and Siptah, with a new avatar, new NPCs, placeables, feats and item sets!


Core system changes!

New revisions to combat systems with a reduction of mounted combat damage, dodge improvements and re-balancing of bows and arrows! Swimming does not drain stamina and you can engage in 1-handed combat on water! And the hunger and thirst systems have received a balance pass to make them less frustrating and improve the gameplay flow!


Server Character Transfer! (Coming Soon)

This is currently a W.I.P. feature and it’s not fully implemented in the initial version of this update - we are still testing and developing this feature. Once we are nearing its launch, we will release an announcement detailing how it works.

Transfer your character between Official servers, between unofficial servers, or from an Official server to an unofficial one (Note: Unofficial servers can opt in or out of this feature!). You’ll keep your name, appearance, level, feats and backpack inventory while leaving everything else behind. Even within Exiled Lands servers, or from/to Siptah!
(Please note: To transfer to or from the Isle of Siptah, ownership of the DLC Expansion pack will be required)

notes


Currently Known Issues

  • The Character Server Transfer feature is still W.I.P. and actively worked on and not fully implemented in this initial build. Once we’re closer to its release we will release an announcement with all the details about it and its usage.
  • Some Leyshrine camps have inconsistent climb blockers.

performance

  • Fixed a number of client crashes.
  • Fixed a server crash related to mismatching modlists.

  • Increased number of reconnection attempts when connection fails to the voice chat servers.
  • Fixed a server crash that was occurring when harvesting a player corpse and looting it’s loot bag.

  • Added new Rocknose types with new art, animations and combat logic.
  • Added a new tool: the Iron Sickle.
  • (Coming Soon - we are still developing and testing this feature and it is currently disabled) Added new character transfer feature, from an Official server to another Official server, from an unofficial server to another unofficial server, or from an Official server to an unofficial server, from or to the Exiled Lands and Siptah (Unofficial servers will be able to disable this feature if they desire). We will release an announcement closer to the full launch of this update where we will provide more details about this feature.
    • Server transfers will work in this order: Official PVP → Official PVEC → Official PVE → Unofficial
      Meaning, you can transfer between the same level or to a level below. But not from below to above. Meaning, a PVP player can transfer to another Official PVP server, or to any other mode. An Official server PVE player, on the other hand, can transfer to another PVE Official server or to an unofficial server, but not to an Official PVEC or PVP server.
    • We will release a full announcement detailing how it works once we’re nearing the final launch of this feature.

Greetings, Exiles!

We’re releasing a stability patch that addresses the issues introduced with June 2nd’s patch. This includes crashes and freezing issues, especially after teleporting and using the maproom. This patch also addresses issues when loading into custom map mods and other similarly reported issues since yesterday’s patch. We have also reapplied two stability hotfixes released last week.

Thank you everybody for your feedback and patience while we’ve addressed this issue. Stay safe.
