- Genre: Survival, Action-adventure
Conan Exiles is a survival video game that was released via early access in 2017. It was released as a full game in 2018 and has since been remastered to be released as an enhanced version on the Xbox Series console.
The game is set in the world of Conan the Barbarian, and you’ll be playing as a custom character that you create. Fans of Conan will find a lot to enjoy when playing this game.
The story of Conan Exiles has to do with a character surviving in the fictional world of the prehistoric Hyborian Age of Conan the Barbarian.
The storyline isn’t the game’s main feature, as it’s mostly focused on survival gameplay. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t find out information about the lore of the Conan universe.
In other words, you’ll be doing a lot of exploring, and you’ll find that the world is rich with references to Conan the Barbarian source material such as Lorestones and books. You’ll have to go digging to find things, but you won’t find a traditional story while playing this game.
Since your goal is survival in this game, it’s going to mostly involve you fighting enemies and finding supplies that you need to keep on going. It’s a pretty standard action title where you’ll also need to manage things such as hunger and thirst.

Thankfully, there are a lot of neat things that you can do that will make the game fun. For instance, you can catch animals and raise them as companions or train them to defend your home.
You can also play on different servers that will put other players into the game. This means that you can participate in player-versus-player (PvP) combat if you’re so inclined. You’ll also be doing standard things as you do in most survival titles such as crafting.

Isle of Siptah is a massive expansion to Conan Exiles, which was released in May 2021.
Conan Exiles: Isle of Siptah features a huge and dangerous new island to explore. The island features 12 new dungeons – called Vaults – to explore and have fun with monster and loot hunting.
At the center of the island is a dark tower that looms above the landscape clouded in a magical Maelstrom storm, which spawns horrible new creatures.
And oh yeah, then there’s the opportunity to worship and summon the massive spider-god called Zath.

Here are the answers to some other frequently asked questions about Conan Exiles.
How many players can play together at the same time in Conan Exiles?
Conan Exiles allows for up to 70 players to play together online at a time on the official PvE-servers. On dedicated servers, you can play up to 70 players at the same time.
Clans are limited to a max of 10 players on the official servers
Is Conan Exiles co-op?
Yes, Conan Exiles supports co-op. When you set up a single-player game, you get the option to launch it as a coop game, in which case, other players can join your game and you’ll be the host. You can play up to 4 players in total in co-op mode.
Keep in mind that in this game mode your computer will act as a server and render the game at the same time. Because of this, there’s a tether between you and other players, i.e. you can’t move too far away from each other (the distance is about a square in the map grid).
How to get rid of the tether in Conan Exiles.
Can you transfer characters between servers in Conan Exiles?
Yes, since update 2.5, it is now possible to transfer characters between servers. This means that you can transfer characters not only between Exiled Lands and Isle of Siptah servers but also between official and unofficial servers.
You’ll keep the character name, level, appearance, feats, and main inventory of a non-overburdened character.
Note, there are some important limitations:
- you can only have one character on each server.
- you can transfer from an official to an unofficial server but not from unofficial to official server
- you can transfer from a PvP server to a PvE server but not from PvE to PvP
- there’s a 24-hour cooldown between each transfer on PvE servers and a 7-day cooldown on PvP servers to avoid exploitation.
