Some players have recently reported the game not launching after…well, launching it. Check your CPU; if you have an Intel 11th Gen CPU, you may be one of several people reporting problems, and you may be able to work around it with the following:
Game locking up/crashing during loading screens or gameplay (GamePass PC)
The update from June 2, 2021 caused stability issues for many players, including the game hard-locking during loading screens or at seemingly random intervals. People experiencing this issue had to force-quit the application via the Task Manager.
This issue should now be resolved as of a new Steam update released today (June 3, 2021). Please update your clients and let us know if you continue to have any other issues.
Further edit: This issue appears to still be present in the GamePass PC version. This will be patched out as soon as possible.
Game frequently pauses/hitches when trying to move with keyboard/mouse, is fine when using a gamepad or not moving
It’s unclear whether or not this is tied to the Gamepass version of Conan Exiles, but Winny has suggested that this issue may be related to Razer peripherals and their driver app.
Try exiting the Razer Central app and see if that works.
Updating this thread into a general workarounds topic for issues like game crashes and the game not starting.
If the game is simply not starting after launching, check to see what kind of CPU you have. If you have an 11th gen Intel CPU, you may be able to work around the issue with the following workaround suggested by @SelinaK :
Nice to see Workaround… would not BattlEye sabotage it
Lately i got “.Pak Tempering Errors” at Startup. So i assume this will get hot again and the Game would not Starting at all
Even now i tried it. Starting the Game, the Intro-movie is running “First they took your Riches!” and while starting some Application in the background, Bam “Fatal Error” Crash on Load-up
Your BattlEye is to tight or grumpy when it comes to it, or my PC is becoming to old with time…So do your “BattlEye” Corner keep it up to date with all this Win10 Patches and stuff? I assume the Consoles do not have it
I am getting g frequent game crashes, a couple of freezes (had to log off from computer to force conan to shut down) and several critical errors since latest patch. For those I used the crash report tool and sent to fincom
Hey, first off, thanks for your efforts. I’m sure it’s chaos at the moment
That said, is there any movement on a fix for the game not launching through the launcher? I do have an 11th gen processor, and I see that a suggested ‘fix’ has been mentioned. But tweaking files in my advanced system settings, when the average user should not be expected to have the level of computer literacy to know exactly what it is they’re tweaking, does not seem like a feasible solution for me. I was hoping there would be some sort of official fix as opposed to a crowd-sourced suggestion that may or may not work.
Again, thank you guys for working on a game I enjoy and genuinely want to play.
Yeah, I understand fiddling with systems files is not an acceptable long-term solution for this issue, but in the interim it seems to be working for a lot of folks. We’re investigating the issue internally but a formal solution to the issue is not available at this time.
For what it’s worth, it looks like this is an issue that pops up with Unreal 4 games, and is not unique to Conan Exiles; we’ve seen similar reports from games like Valorant, PUBG, and…Bloodstained? Which I didn’t know ran on Unreal; and reporting that the OPENSSL_ia32cap variable change has worked for users experiencing crashes on startup.
Hopefully we’ll have something soon. In the meantime, thank you for your patience.
@AndyB, the game is crashing quite often way more than it did with 2.4 patch, THIS started with 2.4.4
and it happens when i am playing, its been a while since i sent so many crash reports , and it is also happening to everyone in our clan. ill ask in the server to see if other people are having issues and report back.
Is it possible to get an expedited fix? Many people who play on official servers are running risk of their creations falling to decay time, and even with all the fixes, some are still unable to play the game.
Has anyone ever had this issue before? I’ve digging up and googling for hours and it seem to have occurred back in 2017 but the prior solutions used then don’t work now. Furthermore, it seems to only occur with users running AMD CPU’s. Here is the messages I receive after going through the menu screen of Conan Exiles and entering a server:
Fatal error: [File:c:\REPO\Engine\Source\Runtime\Windows\D3D11RHI\Private\D3D11Util.cpp] [Line: 181]
Unreal Engine is exiting due to D3D device being lost. (Error: 0x887A0006 - ‘HUNG’)

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated, thank you for your patience and time
I’ve sadly worked and did all those particular steps. The game runs fine on my laptop and my wife’s computer, both of which are running Intel CPU’s. On top of that, my wife’s computer has the same specifications as mine except the CPU is Intel i9-9900kf
