This is a work in progress build and as such, none of the changes and implementations found in it are final. Neither is the patchnotes document, which will be updated, corrected and completed over the Testlive period to better reflect the work in progress nature of this build.
Greetings, Exiles of the Testlive lands!
We’re revving up the engines for the 2.7 Update release, letting you have a try at this early revision we’re going to be working on during the upcoming weeks, which we’re aiming to release in live servers before the holidays break.
In 2.7 we’re adding a new Point of Interest protection system. This first iteration will prevent obelisks in the Exiled Lands from being blocked, and will destroy any interfering constructions until access is guaranteed. We’re also focusing on polishing the new Nemedian building pieces and cosmetic sets, with fixes to collision boxes and visual polish to minor issues with armors and placeables. Along with that comes the hinted at upgrade to the building pickup system, where any pieces that would’ve otherwise collapsed when picking one up will now be sent to the inventory!
And, what could be the highlight for many of you, we’ve finally delivered one of your most requested changes since the game’s release: it should no longer rain indoors! Any sheltered areas will now protect from the rain and you should no longer see your fancy rugs and furniture soaked in rain. Making those roofs work for it, you know?
Along with these changes we’ve been working on other fixes and general layers of polish to the game. We can’t wait to let you play around with this early version of update 2.7. If you do, please send us your feedback so we can give it some extra love ahead of its release!
Thanks once again for your continued feedback and support, and stay safe!
IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING MODS
Please remember that updates can mess with the functionality of your installed mods. We suggest taking a backup of your current database before updating to any new patch if you have mods installed. For the purposes of testing, we recommend not using any mods when playing on Testlive.
Cascading Pick-Up System!
Picking up a building piece will now also send to your inventory any other pieces that would collapse. Other changes and fixes also make this feature more robust and intuitive!
Point of Interest Protection System!
Obelisks in the Exiled Lands will now be protected against obstructing constructions. This new system will check against any total blockings and destroy the offending structures. This can also be enabled in private servers by adjusting a new server setting!
No more rain indoors!
You can now sing and dance in the rain, happy again, as you’ll finally be able to shelter from it in your home.
Roofs will now protect against rain! No more soaked bases! Hallelujah!

We heard your input regarding the inconvenience with having to switch back and forth between the main game and our TestLive servers. To make it easier for you and because we really value your testing and feedback, we added a separate product for the TestLive server on Steam.
If you own Conan Exiles on Steam, you should see a separate Product called “Conan Exiles - Testlive Client” in your library which gives you the option to install an additional instance of the game specifically for the TestLive servers. Please be aware that this will prompt you for a full additional installation.
We are aware that not everyone wants install or has space for two full installations. For those of you who don’t want to play through the additional TestLive Client, you can still access the TestLive servers through our old method.
