A new Conan Exiles update has landed. Update 2.3 brings offline play to the game, so you can finally explore the vast world of the Exiled Lands by yourself. There's also a revamp to the way the Isle of Siptah works, some new gameplay functionality, and plenty more.
How does Conan Exiles offline play work?
After applying the update, if you begin a game of Conan Exiles without an internet connection or lose your connection while playing, you'll be able to play offline. You'll see a message in the bottom-right corner of the screen telling you if you're in offline mode, so you'll know if your connection drops. Now, if you haven't managed to find a suitable online raiding party to take on Conan Exiles' many challenges, you can take them on all by your lonesome.
You'll also find plenty of new NPC camps on the Isle of Siptah in Conan Exiles. These changes will affect the landscape of the area, so if you've got a camp on Siptah, make sure you check out the devs' blog post to see if it'll be affected. Three factions - the Stygian Mercenaries, Black Corsairs, and Accursed - have put down camps in Siptah, each of which will allow you to engage with new activities. You can liberate thralls to join you, gain powerful buffs, and interact with new vendors, among other surprises. Be sure to head to Siptah and check it out.
What other changes does the Conan Exiles update make?
In addition to these changes, you'll also find myriad new gameplay features and tweaks. A sprint attack has been added so you don't have to kill your momentum when it's time to bring down an attacker. Camps and settlements can now be subject to purges, and just like the new camps on the Isle of Siptah, you can get thralls from these purges. Vaults, storms, and surges can now all be enjoyed separately rather than having to be chained, too.
There are plenty of changes to read up on, so check out the full patch notes if you want to know more. You can grab Conan Exiles right now on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Naturally, it's also playable on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S via backward compatibility, too.
