A new update is coming soon to Conan Exiles, and it's not just free but also the biggest since the game was launched. Age of Sorcery will fulfill the Sword & Sorcery promise of Conan the Barbarian. In addition, it's set to make a fundamental change in how new content is introduced to the game.

Now then, let's start with the obvious fact that once the update goes live, it means that sorcery has arrived in the Exiled Lands. Basically, players are given the choice to sacrifice their life force to receive corrupting sorceries that can take a whole range of forms.

Unlike other fantasy games, the sorcery in this game is dark and creeping, which demands preparation and a pinch of madness. It may not be magic missiles or fireballs but it can definitely summon demonic allies or even call down storms, to name a few.

Improvements in Attributes

While most barbarians loathe sorcery, the update will introduce new powers for players to choose from. This is all thanks to the attributes overhaul. Players can specialize their character by choosing between two powerful perks at every other attribute milestone. Those who decide to go down the dark path of sorcery can infuse attributes like strength, vitality, and charisma with corruption.

Battle Pass

Another big change happening when the update arrives is Seasons. It’s going to be called Ages, and each has its own theme, free content, and even Battle Passes. Players can look forward to content drops being more evenly paced along with a much easier way of supporting the game's growth.

There are also Challenges, which are rotating tasks that need to be completed to advance in the Battle Pass and earn new rewards.

The Bazaar

In addition to the Battle Pass, there’s also the Black Lotus Bazaar. This is an item store for easy access to paid DLC content. It’s a way of giving players more granular choice in terms of what they want to buy.
