Hey everybody,

We are aware of PS4 Pro systems having additional issues regarding performance. To those of you playing on PS4 Pro and experiencing these issues, could you provide some extra info so I can send it to our QA guys?

  • Resolution (4k or 1080p/i)
  • Is performance/boost mode enabled on your system?

Thank you in advance.


To be honest I have no idea lmao sorry I’ll check an hit u back on how it’s set up but I have a question in turn u can speak to ur programmers can u tell me the optimal way to have the ps4 pro set up I’ll gladly change settings to make the game preform better thank u for ur time


In addition to my friend post for server 3522;

delete, wipe, destroy, vaporate, nuke and/or BAN in his most absolute form the clan members: UNSCRUPULOUS… who their only goal is to block every player by building wall around obelisk, dungeons villages with spikes on it. And yes… its PVE-C so we cannot destroy buildings… only secure what we can with our own wall without blocking any access.

this server like this whole game in all its form are in real danger if YOU!! F.U.N.C.O.M do nothing for correct this issue

Can u rally other clans I mean just to make there lives more difficult an eventually throttle them til they move servers I had a similar problem whole volcano blocked off so I foumnd there main camp boxed on the. Obelisk closest to there home base put up a sign this door opens to all when the volcano does took two days just an example

Hey guys, new member here. Just bought the game on PS4 as it was discounted in the January sale. Have only played for about an hour but I’ve already experienced a number of issues that are hampering my enjoyment of the game.

  1. The first issue is a freeze/stutter that happens randomly but consistently during gameplay. It doesn’t seem to matter what I’m doing it just freezes/stutters for a split second and then gameplay continues. Very annoying.

  2. The second issue has already been mentioned but when I die the game freezes for probably 5-10 seconds before respawning me in the desert.

  3. The third issue is textures seem to drop resolution (stop loading? I don’t know) on the player model and potentially other models as well. I’ve had it happen twice so far where the textures on the player are super low resolution, like you can’t see muscles or any sort of detail anymore. Reloading the game seems to fix it for a time.

  4. Last issue is server lag. I’m from Australia playing on the oceanic servers and even with only 8 people in the server it said my ping was close to 100. I generally get around 50ms ping on most other games, even 64 player servers on Battlefield V.

  • All of these issues (except the ping issue) happens in both multiplayer PvP server and single player.
  • I’ve only just started the game so these issues are happening at the starting area in the desert.
  • I’m playing on PS4 Pro in 4K. Performance mode I think might still be enabled from when I had a 1080P TV. Might check this to see if it fixes anything.

Really keen to get stuck into the game but the issues I’ve experienced in my first hour are already troubling. Would be good if these issues get sorted out quickly. PSN don’t offer refunds once you start the game so I’m kinda stuck with it anyway but that’s beside the point.

I took some videos of the stuttering issue but the board doesn’t let me post youtube links :confused:

First off welcome to Conan Exiles great game but u need lots of patience currently reloading again. Ps4 pro users seem to be having more issues than ps4. From what I’ve read on this and other forum. Why O replaced old ps4 with 1tb ps4 instead of pro they are continuously fixing problems hangin their good luck

Hey @dreamstation

We are aware of PS4 Pro systems having additional issues regarding performance. I am gathering as much feedback as I can to send it to our team first thing next year. Thanks for the information you shared, and I would be grateful if you could update me with your experience after disabling performance mode.
Regarding the Youtube links, please feel free to DM me with the link to the video.

really??? so many posts over the months about PS4 issues and you still bought the game???

a doubt you are a new member, but in any case the PS4 version is dead and does not work anymore.

i reload the game from scratch every 2 months. hoping that something has been overhauled, but more bugs and issues. most official servers are dead and only the most tolerant of the players exist and build on…

they now have a nice and dedicated forum moderator but without commitment at fixing the console version this turns into only a marketing handling.

how exactly are these issues reported by moderator to dev and how do we see the status of said issues???


Ignasis I am trying to find where to send you the video links in a private message but I can’t seem to find where to do it. Can you please assist with a link or some description on where to do this? I tried the other day when I made the post but no luck finding the option.

Edit - I see now I have the option to send you a message. It was definitely not there before.

Managed to play the game in co-op with my partner and we had some fun with it. Performance issues seem to also be there on our second PS4 as well which is a slim, not a pro. Might not have been as bad as the pro but there was definitely still some stuttering.

Yes I still bought the game because I loved Age of Conan back in the day and I’ve been waiting for Exiles to go on sale. Seemed like a fair price for the game and I thought that since it had been out for a while that some of the issues had been sorted. The game is not horrible, in fact both my partner and I had some fun with it in co-op last night. Just performance issues hampered the experience somewhat.


Here is where you can see what has been reported to the devs and the status of each reported bug/fix.

I looked through that list but it doesn’t exactly go into a lot of detail. It mentions “Assorted Performance Issues” but not much more detail than that. No mention of specific issues like the freezing/stuttering issue on PS4, etc.

Actually while I’m here I thought I’d mention that changing options that have a slider bar on PS4 is incredibly slow. You literally can only change it by 1 notch at a time and between each increase/decrease is a slight pause where you can’t increase/decrease again. Other games allow you to move the slider very smooth and quickly to the desired level.

This is why I haven’t bought a single DLC from funcom. I won’t buy DLC for a game in beta. I paid 50$ for this game on may 8th and it’s the buggiest game I’ve ever had to actually spend money on.

i reported that here a month ago and the moderator confirmed it was an issue introduced last patch. i don’t see that on the list of things to be fixed provided above. it used to work like many other things. video lag has gotten worse over the past few months. my guess is they are moving forward with PC dev and features while not testing the consoles. CE is a lazy console port of a PC game…

Hi my name is CrazyTim and I would like to help you fine people get an understanding of whats wrong with Conan Exiles so that you can fix it for Playstation 4. Go to youtube and look for an account called CrazyRebelTin123 and look for a video called “Conan Exiles but the game needs to be fixed” that is what you should look for when the video is up on youtube and finished so that you guys can finally get a video clip of whats going on whats going on with your game. Bear in mind that this video clip will be made a Playstation 4 slim or regular not the pro so no 4K HD and the server will be singleplayer offline. I really hope that this will help you all be able to fix the game’s problems or atleast shed some light on whats wrong. The video will be up in a few hours so give me some to have it finished after reading this ok.

Sorry about my voice being difficult hear in the video I really hope this helps

I waited to respond. Back after holidays hope everyone’s was great I was running my ps4 pro with boost mode off in 1080 I turned on boost mode an got a good bit better performance buildings filling in faster still have a lot of frame rate drops but only sometimes other times not at all an it’s random when this occurs but most often near my bases additional question my wife plays on a regular ps4 she still cannot play one night about three hrs without a freeze then a blue screen crash an chance this gonna b fixed anytime soon really hoping so I don’t want her to quit cause if this that’s my favorite person running with her is one of the things that keeps me playing hoping for good news thank u

Hey @Chaos31469

Thanks for following up with your situation. Are you and your partner playing online? Does that server have big and/or complex player structures?
