In Conan Exiles, you explore and survive a vast open world full of ancient ruins, dark sorceries, and savage peoples. With the monumental Age of Sorcery free update, we completed the Sword & Sorcery promise that lies at the heart of Conan the Barbarian by introducing the sorcery system for players to bend to their will.
With Age of Sorcery — Chapter 2, the Exiled Lands continues to evolve with more adventures and danger to be found than ever. As a sandbox survival game, we want players to feel the world absolutely brimming with places to explore, mysteries to unearth, and challenges to overcome.
In the years since Conan Exiles launched, we have continuously added free content like this, expanding the map and what you do in it, and we have no intention of slowing down. Today, we’d like to walk you through some of the new features and activities you can experience in Chapter 2.
In today’s update, we continue what began in the first chapter of Age of Sorcery. The rise of sorcery has not gone unnoticed in the Exiled Lands, and there are those who seek to control this new and virulent power. You can find these strange people to start your new Headhunting career. Their camps can be found in various places.
Once you have spoken to them you will be tasked with tracking down sorcerer NPCs who are spreading their vile influence across the land. It’s up to you to find them, and then either slay or incapacitate them to bring them back dead or alive. The reward for a living sorcerer is higher, but a skull will do just fine too. If we ever find ourselves at a crossroads as to which direction content should go, the answer comes easy when we ask, “What would Conan do?” (in this case, hunt sorcerers).
Efficient headhunters are rewarded with valuable resources, new armor pieces, and more.
Witch Hunt Encounter
When we released Age of Sorcery, we introduced several new random Encounters to the world. In Chapter 2, take on four different boss-level sorcerers in the Witch Hunt Encounter. Each of the four has a different look and set of spells, so you better come prepared. These sorcerers are far more powerful than the others you can come across, but the rewards for bringing one in reflect that.
New Battle Pass and Bazaar Cosmetics
With the new Chapter comes a new Battle Pass bursting with cosmetics, as well as new additions to the Bazaar item shop. All paid content like this is strictly limited to cosmetics. Equip new armors and weapon looks, raise grand cathedrals with the expanded Stormglass building set, and decorate your base with a whole range of new items, such as the ominous cursed tree and labyrinth hedges. New challenges tied to the free Headhunting and the Witch Hunt Encounter have also been introduced to help progress in the Battle Pass.
Conan Exiles and Age of Sorcery — Chapter 2 is now available to buy on the Microsoft Store. It’s also available with Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass. Get the latest news and join the community on the official website, Twitter, and Facebook.
Conan Exiles can be played in full single-player, co-op, or persistent online multiplayer.
SURVIVE IN A SAVAGE LAND
Dress well or light a campfire to stay warm and make sure to cool yourself down in the heat. Hunt, cook, eat, and drink to stay alive. Build a shelter to weather scouring sandstorms. Be careful when exploring darkened ruins or you might become corrupted by foul sorcery.
BUILD A HOME AND A KINGDOM
Harvest resources to craft tools and weapons, then build anything from a small home to entire cities piece by piece using a powerful building system. Place traps, elevators, and defenses, then deck out your creations with furniture, crafting stations, and more.
DOMINATE THE EXILED LANDS
Carve out your piece of the Exiled Lands, taking it from other players if you must! Build siege weapons and use explosives to break down the walls of your enemy’s city. Place traps, recruit thralls, and build defenses to keep your enemies from invading you.
CORRUPT YOURSELF TO WIELD DARK SORCERY
Discover insidious sorceries and corrupt your body to wield them. Special perks are awarded to those who give up a portion of their life force. Sacrifice thralls to summon demons and the undead and bend them to your will. Conjure darkness, soar the skies on winged monstrosities, and call down lightning to strike your foes.
