Okay so, lets talked about the Exiled Lands.
Base game map, its been the same since release, then Isle of Siptah gets added, (which by the way, is in South-West Hyboria just West of Stygia) a WHOLE new location… a separate map completely, not connected to the Exiled Lands OR the character you have from the Exiled Lands.
The goal of the game was originally, and still is if you play on Exiled Lands, you gather pieces to create the Keystone, to unlock the bracelet that keeps you trapped within the Cursewall. You craft the Keystone and use it, only for it to delete your character and progress.
I HIGHLY suggest, for future expansions, add onto the original map.
When you first start out, the game progression happens just as it does now, you work to gather the pieces to craft the Keystone to free yourself from the bracelet, but then AFTER you remove the bracelet, it now lets you travel beyond the Cursewall, with no loading screen, to new expanded lands with all new story, creatures, locations, biomes to explore. North of the Volcano, South & West of the desert, East of the jungle to a new continent, possibly accessible by adding boat and ship crafting to be able to travel back and forth.
A whole new direction for endgame, to really expand on the Conan Exiles gameplay and universe. The map of the Hyborian Age is huge, and can really turn Conan Exiles into more than just a “box map” prison where the only goal is to make a bracelet that restarts your progress.
New players will have the bracelet on, and still be stuck in the Exiled Lands just as usual, but can work to free themselves and travel freely to and from the Exiled Lands and the new locations added, north of the Volcano, south of the Desert, etc etc. Conan Exiles could become a true OPEN world survival game, with new content added such as dungeons, raids, new locations, not just DLCs that add new armors.
As someone who has been playing Conan Exiles constantly since release, with every DLC purchased the day it comes out, and countless hours played, I think this would really put Conan Exiles on the map again.
TL;DR - The goal of Conan Exiles is to remove the bracelet, which is more of a negative than a positive, because it resets your progress. Instead, for future expansions, add onto the original map, north, south, east and west, and by freeing yourself from the bracelet, you gain the ability to travel beyond the Cursewall, free to travel back and forth to the new locations (no loading screen) by foot, horseback, boat (if you’re traveling East) new lands, new stories, new enemies.
