PS4 Hotfix (15.11.2018)


Hey everyone!

We’re rolling out a quick hotfix for the PS4 to take care of some issues that popped up after the post-Halloween patch. Please not that this patch contains no updates to the Purge system. That is planned to come out in a future patch.


  • Fixed an issue with thrall recipes not being visible when the user reenters any crafting station
  • Fixed an issue that prevented the user from scrolling up and down within any crafting station
  • Fixed a Quick Loot functionality issue for loot bags, where loot bags weren’t quick loot-able, even by their owner

PS4 Post-Halloween Patch (07.11.2018)


Dear exiles,

We have patched the PS4 version of Conan Exiles and removed the Halloween content from the game. We know the Night of Lost Souls event hasn’t been everyone’s cup of tea and we’re taking several lessons away from the feedback we’ve gotten this past week.

If you haven’t been participating in the discussions on our forums or on social media, and would like to give us your opinion on the event, please fill out this quick survey with your feedback:

Conan Exiles Halloween Event Survey

Thank you to everyone for voicing your opinions and for offering tips on future events. We take it all to heart.

This patch contains a number of updates to the Event Log so it will log more information related to pets, thralls and items. We’ve also fixed several bugs related to player corpses.


  • Event Log changes (see below for more details)
  • Halloween event has ended. The Potion of Lost Souls and any resources harvested during the event will remain in player inventory until consumed or decayed.
  • Fixed an issue where having several of buff/debuff icons on screen would cause a lot of lag

Patch Notes:

Event Log changes

  • Dismantled placeables will now show up as intended in the Event Log
  • Items dropping from destroyed placeables will now be listed in the Event Log when they’ve decayed
  • Abandoned/Decayed bases will also show up in the event log. If destroyed by players their name will appear in the Event Log
  • Update to the “Days Passed” slider in the Event Log to be more inconsistent
  • Event log entries can now stack and be displayed in one row instead of multiple.
  • Database maintenance: Remove Event Log entries older than 3 weeks
  • Companion names should now be displayed properly in the Event Log when they are hungry, starving or returning home
  • Made companion cause of death more consistent in the Event Log (Please note: The Event Log does not support custom companion names):
    – Player and Clan name will be displayed when a follower is killed by another player
    – NPC name will be displayed when a follower is killed by an NPC
    – Starvation/fall damage/noxious damage will be displayed when a follower dies by these
  • The Event Log should now display item names as intended
  • Dragging an item from a Crafting Station and dropping it on a stack of said items in the inventory should now create an entry in the Event Log

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a bug where traps could be returned to player inventory after exploding
  • Fixed a bug where corpses would disappear if a player died underwater.
  • Fixed an issue where an Avatar’s timer wouldn’t update correct on Dedicated Servers
  • Fixed a bug where accessing a vault would cause lag and hitching
  • Fixed a bug that allowed players to loot XX_Unarmed items from Thralls
  • Fixed a bug where unconscious NPCs would disappear if they fall or slide away from a space where they were released from their bindings (like a cliff)
  • Fixed an issue where having several of buff/debuff icons on screen would cause a lot of lag
  • The Degenerate should no longer spawn two corpses when killed
  • Removed guards on letting following companions teleport to you. Pets should now follow you more reliably into your compounds
  • Fixed a bug where attempting to move a pet or thrall would have them turn invisible if the player moved too far away from their original placement.
  • Fix a visual bug causing the blood spatter background of certain Feat filter icons to disappear
  • Fixed a possible leak in SQLite DB handling due to missing ‘virtual’ keyword on ~QueryResultBase
  • Explosive Arrows should no longer do damage to buildings on PvE servers.

Environment Changes

  • Removed the ability to reach a unplayable area in the Black Keep
  • Fixed a collision issues with the barriers in the Midnight Grove
  • Fixed an issue where the curse wall spline had many points that had inverted rotation, causing issues with not being able to build in random places. Also removed a duplicate of the curse wall spline that existed right on top of the original one.
  • Removed the ability to reach a unplayable area in Bin-Yakin’s Seal cave ceiling

Quality of Life Changes

  • Added a “Clear” button to the Server Browser, to more easily remove entries in Server Name and Maximum Ping filters
  • The Crafting Station UI will now display the name of the crafting station instead of “Crafting Station”
  • It is now possible to rename your pets on consoles
  • Loot bags from decayed/destroyed buildings should now have ownership and can’t be looted. This was changed to fix a quick-loot bug, but we know that this also removes the option of scavenging on PvE servers and we’re discussing alternate solutions for a similar mechanic

Localization Changes

  • Various localization fixes on DLC items

PS4 Halloween Event (09.11.2018)


Today we are kicking off our Halloween event, which will run throughout the game during the next week. Welcome, exiles, to the Night of Lost Souls!

The sky will darken as perpetual dusk falls upon the landscape, casting it in black shadows and blue light, tearing at the boundaries which separate the world of the living from the realms of the dead. The clouds will part. A new face will appear upon the moon’s surface. It is the face of death, keeping watch over whatever might stir on the ground below.

During the Night of Lost Souls, stones will fall from the sky in multitudes, striking the earth in a flurry of colored smoke and debris. Adventurous exiles can break open these stones with whatever tool they have available. Inside, they will find a plethora of crafting ingredients, both rare and common, doled out at random by the spirits lingering inside the stones, anything from Plant Fiber and Meat to Explosive Glands, Arrows and Steelfire. It all depends on the spirit’s goodwill.

Inside the fallen stones you will also discover the Potion of Lost Souls, a special brew only available on this hallowed night. Imbibing the Potion will grant you certain benefits at random. Drink one and see what happens, but don’t drink too many or your body will suffer the consequences. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.

After a week, the Night of Lost Souls will pass and the sun will once again rise on the Exiled Lands. The restless spirits will be calm, yet their gifts will remain with those who received them.


  • The Conan Exiles Halloween Event is now live and will run until the 6th of November
  • Added new music, sound effects, Main Menu graphics and changed the lighting to make things more spooky
  • Torches now burn with a purple light
  • The moon’s face is now different
  • Meteors will fall from the skies, containing different kinds of loot and goodies
  • The Potion of Lost Souls can be harvested from meteors. Imbibing them will grant you a number of buffs and effects

Halloween Event Server Settings

You can use the following console commands to control meteor spawns (if you plug a keyboard into your PS4) and decay where X is the multiplier for time.

  • SetServerSetting HalloweenMeteorDecayTimer=X
    – The higher number, the rarer meteors are. Set this to a low number for more or less constant meteors.
  • SetServerSetting HalloweenMeteorSpawnTimer=X

PS4 Hotfix (02.11.2018)


Hey everyone,

We’re rolling out a hotfix to take care of the most reported issues with the Halloween update released yesterday. We want to thank our community for reporting these issues to us and for staying patient and positive as we fixed them.

In this hotfix we’re tweaking the game so it will be easier for players to see in the eternal twilight, while also balancing the loot drops from the Halloween meteors. The T2 doors are also getting fixed.

If it’s still too dark for you you can also tweak the following server settings to the following values. This should make it less dark:

  • DayCycleSpeedScale=9.000000
  • DayTimeSpeedScale=0.10000
  • NightTimeSpeedScale=10.000000
  • DawnDuskSpeedScale=5.000000


  • Fixed T2 doors so you cannot walk through them
  • Removed Star Metal Picks, Dragonpowder and Skeleton Keys from meteors for balancing purposes
  • Meteor fragments that have been harvested or disappeared won’t leave a particle trail behind
  • Changed speed of day on official servers so it will not get as dark during the Halloween event
  • Added auto exposure to compensate for the darkness and make things a bit brighter
  • Made the minimum spawn and decay time for meteors be 60 seconds.
  • Made it so meteor spawning could not be triggered if it is already spawning meteors.

Update 34 Part 2: Electric Boogaloo (11.10.2018) – New pet system (PS4)


Come one come all! We have released the second part of the Pets Update for PS4!

The latest free update to Conan Exiles lets you raise and tame the wild beasts of the Exiled Lands. Pets will fight for you, defend your settlements and produce valuable resources while confined to their pet pens. We’re also rolling out some bug fixes and some critical crash fixes.

Conan Exiles Update 34: Pets, Dungeon and New Religion - YouTube


  • New pet taming system
  • Fixed 2 critical server crashes reported by the community
  • The north-western corner of the Frozen North is accessible again!

Pet system and taming

You asked for it and we are happy to deliver: From today on forward you will be able to tame and raise your very own pet(s). Explore the Exiled Lands with your trusty companion by your side or build a farm to have them produce materials for you.

You will want to start your career as a Beastmaster by building an animal pen for your new future friends. These shelters come in three different tiers and have 5 available pens to hold your animals.

Following this, you will need to obtain a baby or an egg. These can be found in the world, and on certain (rare) vendors so keep your eyes open while you travel! You’ll be able to place your baby pet version into the pen and have them grow into an adult and trusty companion over time.

However, don’t forget to feed and treat them well or you might just end up with a carcass!

While you have a baby animal in your pen, the type of food you offer it will influence your chances to have your baby grow into a greater pet version: A rarer, more powerful and special looking variation.

The new pet system will also introduce the mechanic of thrall feeding. Special Feed boxes and Thrall Pots are available for easier, automatic food distribution to several pets or thralls for those of you who are planning for bigger armies of two and four legged friends.

While keeping your pets happy and fed they will eat any type of food that they can digest. However, feeding them their favorite snacks will grant them temporary buffs.

Very conveniently, live animals will also produce dung, which is used to create compost for your planters.

Even in the sad and unfortunate event of your pet’s untimely death, you can still make use of them. Placing dead pets inside a Liquid Separator will grind them down into blood, bone and hide resources.

Patch notes

Update 34 (04.10.2018) - The Midnight Grove and Jhebbal Sag religion


Greetings fellow travellers! The PS4 patch for Update 34 has passed certification and so we’re bringing it to you on this fine October day.

Gather 'round everyone, for on this day, October 4th, we’re releasing the next update for Conan Exiles! Well, sort of.

We’re releasing half of the Pets Update, meaning you’re getting the Midnight Grove, the Jhebbal Sag religion and thrall hunger system. The pets system will be released at a later date and we’re currently aiming for next week.


This update may render your thralls invisible if you’re playing the single-player mode. To fix this, simply exit to the main menu and log back into your single-player game. This bug won’t happen again after you’ve done this.

The Midnight Grove & Jhebbal Sag Religion

The Midnight Grove is where you learn the Jhebbal sag religion path, the sixth and final religion in Conan Exiles. You have to traverse a labyrinthian maze, facing down many dangers along your path before you make it to the end and discover the final challenge: Jhebbal Sag’s champion.

Defeating the werewolf and consuming its flesh will give you the knowledge of Jhebbal Sag’s altars and religious items. Followers of Jhebbel Sag are all about controlling and hunting beasts. Special bloodletter knives allows them to extract blood from their victims and sacrifice it to their bloodthirsty master.

They are also able to craft special lures that attract animals and other beasts to wherever they’re thrown, making them deadly and implacable foes out in the wild. The magical Mark of Jhebbal Sag will offer any creature caught within it up as tribute to the Lord of Beasts. In return he may send one of his champions to see if you are still worthy.

Reaching the highest level of worship with Jhebbal Sag will grant you access to the deadly Claws of Jhebbal Sag. This devastating weapon allows you to truly tap into your inner beast and unleash furious swipes with razor sharp claws, much like like Jhebbal Sag’s champion.

Thrall Hunger

As part of this update we’re rolling out thrall hunger, which requires you to feed your thralls in order to keep them alive. The objective of this is to add nuance and flavor, not grinding, and we’ve gotten a lot of valuable feedback from our Testlive audience when tweaking the numbers. We feel we’ve arrived at a reasonable balance for this mechanic, but we always welcome more feedback.

  • The amount of time a companion can go on without eating, from fully fed to hungry, will be 7 days
  • Companions will be able to eat pretty much anything that’s even remotely edible
  • If you match thrall’s preferred diet, they will gain a bonus buff. This way, if you do care about the specifics of each companion type, you can get a temporary short-term advantage. You can still feed them whatever you want to prevent them from decaying. This also means you can buff your companions right before battle. A server setting (disabled by default) will allow you to make diet matching mandatory if that’s what you prefer
  • Food dispensers (Thrall Pot for thralls and Feedbox for pets) will push smaller amounts of food to each companion before moving onto the next companion. The net result of this is that all your companions will be more equally fed and you’ll need smaller amounts of food to reach them all
  • Food will decay very slowly when placed in food dispensers
  • There will be server options to enable/disable the feeding system separately for thralls and pets. There will also be server config parameters to adjust other aspects of the system, including if your companions should die when they are hungry or only be reduced in health. This means your server can adjust the system to a level of commitment/consequence that you want, including disabling it entirely

Server settings

Private server admins should be aware of the following:

  • StarvationDamagePenaltyCap=n where n is the percentage of maximum damage that a thrall can take if going hungry for 7 ingame days
  • StarvationDamagePenaltyCap=0.0000 would mean taking max 0% damage over time
  • StarvationDamagePenaltyCap=1.0000 would mean taking max 100% damage over time and potentially killing the thralls



  • New Dungeon: The Midnight Grove
  • New offhand combat mechanics
  • New Specialist Arrows: Light Arrows, Tar Arrows, Poison Arrows, Ivory Arrows, Explosive Arrows, Healing Arrows
  • New thrall hunger mechanics


  • Fixed a bug that would cause thrall health to reset to 100 HP

  • Preservation box’s inventory space is increased. Food will not decay in them if there’s ice in the box

PS4 parity patch (21.08.2018)


Good morning, exiles! Today we’re rolling out a parity patch for the PS4 version of Conan Exiles. This will bring several large patches over from the PC, updating the game in a variety of ways. Hold onto your butts, because this is going to be long!

One thing to mention here is that this patch will have collision changes on wall-shaped building pieces and the triangle foundations (all tiers). We’ve unified them to be the same size, and tested to make sure things shouldn’t fall down or disappear from them. It’s possible to lead to some slightly odd builds that can have some placeables disappear. This should hopefully cause only minor (if any) issues on consoles.

If you want to be 100% sure that there will be no issues, you could move placeables and containers off triangle pieces and onto square foundations before the patch goes live (and move them back afterwards).


Clan Hierarchy Options

We’ve added more control for clans in the form of hierarchy options:

  • As a first step, we added a new “recruit” clan level, which is the default level after joining a clan.
  • Vaults will after the patch only be accessible by clan “members”, “officers” and “guild leaders”.
  • Recruits have to be promoted manually to a higher level in order to access vaults.

Threat Animations

Added threat animations for several animals to improve immersion. These will activate when you get close to the monster.

Debuff Status Effect Icons above Health Bars

Added Debuff Status effect icons above enemy target health-bars which indicates the current status effects applied by your weapon finishers like Cripple, Sunder, Bleed

  • General Server Performance improvements

  • Fixed an issue where placeables could be placed inside each other
  • Fixed custom movement controller setup being reset on game restart
  • Fixed crafting progression being lost/reset on server restart (this includes Thrall progress resetting inside the wheel of pain).


We’ve added a couple of new server settings that allow server admins to configure the decay system so that it considers buildings of a certain size to be insignificant and should therefore decay a lot faster than regular buildings. As long as there is no placeable involved.

The server settings are:

  • OverrideDecayMaxBuildingPieces, default value 6.
    This means a building with 6 or less pieces will get its normal decay time overriden by the time specified in the following server setting
  • OverrideDecayTime, default value 3600.
    The amount of seconds it will take this building to decay into abandoned state, and it will then stay in abandoned state for 10% of this time.

With the example of the default values, any building with 6 or less pieces will go into abandoned state after 1 hour. And then completely decay and be destroyed after 10 minutes in abandoned.
(Anyone can demolish an Abandoned building by interacting with it)

It will not get this overriden decay time if there is a placeable, like a bedroll or a campfire, near the building. And it will instead work like before. This is a quick thing we added to combat the “mine-fields” of pillars/foundations placed around the world to claim land. But we’re looking into better approaches.

Hotfix (22.06.2018) - DLC and Exploit Fixes


Hey folks!

There’s a new hotfix out for the PS4 version of Conan Exiles. This adds the new Imperial East Pack DLC and fixes some of the issues you may have had if you were able to access the DLC early. We’ve also included some exploit fixes in this hotfix.


The Imperial East Pack is now available for purchase. It includes the following items:

  • 3 new armor sets – Khitan Mercenary Armor (Light), Khitan Officer Armor (Medium) and Khitan Imperial Armor (Heavy). These armor sets are available from level 10, with an epic version at level 60 (requires epic tier materials to craft)

  • 9 new weapons with Khitai themed visuals. These will be available as iron tier and star metal tier visuals and will have appropriate stats for those levels (and require level appropriate materials to craft)

  • 25 new placeables in Khitan style. These include new carpets, tables, braziers, lanterns, chairs, screens, drums etc

  • 5 new decorative warpaints in Khitan style

  • A new set of Tier 3 building pieces in the Khitan style

General Bug Fixes and Changes

  • Fixed an exploit being used to duplicate orbs. This fix was also in the PC version, where the exploit was more prevalent, alongside a script that would wipe all explosives. Due to technical reasons this script has carried over to the console versions. We apologize for the inconvenience.
  • It should no longer be possible to give yourself 50 points in each Attribute. All Attribute points have been reset to correct this exploit
  • Fixed an instance where the “Buy Up To Next Perk” feature would use more points than needed when getting boosts from equipment and postions
  • Fixed a crash issue related to thralls with no equipment on starting being killed
  • Added DLC panel on the main menu
  • Added in-game visual indicator to DLC feats if you do not yet own these
  • Rebalanced cost of Epic versions of the Khitai armors (they are now more expensive)
  • Fixed a UI problem preventing Epic Khitai armors from crafting
  • Rebalanced Khitai weapon stats so they’re even more in line with existing weapons
  • Fixed collision issues with certain building pieces that could prevent them from attaching properly

Hotfix (06.06.2018)


We’re rolling out an additional PS4 hotfix at 3pm CEST with some crash fixes and an improvement for the server list.

Some servers (private and official) will appear on the list with 9999 ping and full player slots. This isn’t because the server is down, it’s just because the server hasn’t been pinged by the game.

If your chosen server appears to be full, with 9999 ping, just wait a few minutes and the server will be pinged automatically. Then it should update with the correct ping and number of players and you can connect!

If the process takes too long it will time out. Ping will be listed as 9999, but it will show 0 players online. If that happens you can still connect to the server.

Hotfix (05.06.2018)


Hey everyone! We’ve rolled out a new PS4 hotfix in to take care of some pressing issues. This fix should allow you to use warpaint again and make sure dodging works as intended.

  • Fixed an issue where you wouldn’t get a notification when joining a full server
  • Fixed an issue where you would dodge on the spot when locked onto a target
  • It should now be possible to use Warpaint
  • Fixed an issue where players could give themselves infinite stamina while running towards the camera

Hotfix (31.05.2018)


We’ve deployed a hotfix to the PS4 version of Conan Exiles to address some reported crashes.

Parity Patch (29.05.2018)


Update: Warpaint and stamina glitch fixes were erroneously in the list of notes. We apologize for the miscommunication.

AFK Kicker

Players will be kicked after 30 mins of inactivity.

Server admins can use the following server settings for the AFK kicker:

  • KickAFKPercentage = 80 (integer value, between 0 and 100). The percentage controls how many players need to be logged on before the system starts to kick people. So if set to 80 then you need 32/40 players logged in before it will start to kick anybody. If set to 0, the system should be off.

  • KickAFKTime = 2700 (integer value, in seconds). 2700 is the amount of seconds of afk before a character is kicked, for example KickAFKTime=60 will kick people after 1 minute of afk

The Purge

  • Placeables should take same amount of damage as building pieces from players and NPCs
  • PurgeNPCBuildingDamageMultiplier server setting now uses per purge difficulty rather than server max purge value to calculate damage modifers. Previously a difficulty 1 purge could use the damage modifier for a purge difficulty 5 (20x instead of 5x) if max purge level was set to 5 on the server. Lower difficulty purges now deal less damage to buildings.
  • The server setting PurgeNPCBuildingDamageMultiplier can now be modified by server admins
  • New default values for “PurgeNPCBuildingDamageMultiplier = (5.0, 5.0, 10.0, 15.0, 20.0, 25.0)” where the 1st number and 6th number correspond to a difficulty 1 and 6 purge, respectively
  • Purge NPC damage modifier now based on strength of purge instead of purge max difficulty setting
  • Purge NPCs now do correct amount of damage to placeables (previously too low)

Healing Rebalance

  • Reduced the effect of the Receptive perk (Vitality 40) from +100% healing to +25% healing
  • Healing potions now take 10s to heal, increased from 5s. Total healing remains the same
  • Regeneration from healing potions now breaks on taking damage
  • Bandage healing does not break on damage and removes bleeds and cripples at the end of the effect
  • Bandage healing now breaks on movement
  • Bleeds now stack up to 20 times and lasts for 20s. Up from 10 stacks and 10 seconds. Bleed damage scaling per stack reduced
  • Removed drop from Grey Lotus Potion that overrode healing
  • Removed over-the-top healing values from the Grey Lotus Potion that overrode healing

General Balance and QoL Adjustments

  • Rebalanced the Mitra spear and Acheronian sickle
  • Slightly increased blocked rebound time for 2h spear heavy attacks
  • Slightly reduced blocker confirm time for 2h spear heavy attacks
  • Cripple effects for melee weapons have been reduced in efficiency
  • Lowered the damage of the sickles
  • Fixed issue where poison stacks could increase as it was ticking (caused by the weapon being listed as the “damage causer”, which could still be poisoned)
  • Also fixes issue where poison was affected by armor penetration of the weapon that caused it
  • Fixed a problem with target lock which would sometimes move the camera behind the player character, making it difficult to see the target
  • Max elevation at which you can place buildings is now 600 meters across the map. This fixes some building exploits in the volcano area (and should not impact players unless they are reenacting “Jack and the Beanstalk” story)
  • Added support for force-checking .pak files after a major game update
  • Player thralls now follow same rules as buildings for taking damage from players. Both PvE and PvE-Conflict servers will have invincible thralls.
  • Fixed balance issues related to stacking of reaper and scorpion poison
  • Reduced the max amount of death map markers to 3, to match the amount of max corpses you can have active at the same time
  • New Funcom logo video at startup
  • Players now do correct amount of damage to placeables (previously too high)
  • Balance pass on amount of experience player gains from exploration


  • Fixed a player collision problem when logging into a server with the setting active to leave offline characters in the world
  • Removed unarmed attacks from human npcs and gave them stone daggers instead to avoid players being able to obtain and equip unarmed attacks which bug out their characters
  • Fixed a text cut-off issue with “take all” button
  • Thralls should no longer fall under the ground while being dragged in singleplayer/co-op
  • Thralls no longer damage their own base
  • Time restricted PvP building damage was preventing players from damaging each other
  • Fixed player owned Thralls could be killed outside of time-restricted PvP window
  • Fixed a problem with not being able to use unarmed attacks or kicks, along with unarmed fist items showing up in inventories.
  • Fixed some water and sand rendering artifacts
  • Fixed a problem with DB backups resulting in too few backups being stored
  • Vertical and diagonal support building pieces should now work correctly (Previous fix was missing a data change)
  • Fixing another issue where pillars and other socketless connection building pieces could fail to give proper stability. Please report any issues you still encounter with missing building pieces.
  • New fix for “no owner” displayed on building and placeables.
  • Exploit fix: Fixed a visual and stats issue when selecting multiple weapons at the same time
  • Jaguars should no longer defy gravity
  • Fixed an issue that would make players invisible during attacks or rolls when they were on buildings
