Conan Exiles Update 2.8 Steam

Conan Exiles, the survival game by Funcom, received an important patch to its public beta branch. The patch brought performance improvements and bug fixes to almost every aspect of the game.

Loading time on old-gen consoles and weaker hardware is reduced, and memory usage is optimized. The frame rate drop that occurred when placing Illusionist Mirrors is fixed, and several crashing issues are squashed.

The patch updated the BattlEye version, and added a sorcerous pet food receipt to Ophidian Magi Cat feat. Yetis can now fight again while Grey Fox can be damaged. New sheathing animations are added along with new sound effects for them.

You can read about the rest of the changes below.

Performance and Stability

  • Fixed a number of small visual imperfections on a few armor sets.
