conan exiles update 3.0

Developer Funcom has announced that Conan Exiles update 3.0 is coming later this year with the studio shaking up how it handles future DLC for the sword-swinging sandbox survival game.


Conan Exiles update 3.0 will launch during Q3 2022 on all available platforms, introducing players to the Age of Sorcery. As the name implies, this expansion comes loaded with magic-themed content and features, allowing you to cast a grimoire of deadly spells.

It will serve as a template for future “Ages” each one carving out a different experience for Conan players to enjoy. While there’s no release date for the upcoming Age of Sorcery, Funcom has promised an in-depth look in the very near future.

Conan Exiles Update 3.0 Overview

Ages are a new way for Conan Exiles to expand its world and experience. Including the Age of Sorcery, each following Age will continue to have its own theme, free gameplay updates, and paid Battle Passes, which replace the current DLC model. Ages look to the future, in order to deliver evenly paced content drops and an easy way for any player to support the game’s growth and receive exclusive themed cosmetics.

In Age of Sorcery, players will choose whether to grasp the virulent powers of sorcery, sacrificing a portion of their life force to cast deadly spells and summon unholy creatures. Additionally, thanks to an improved attributes and perks system that gives players choices between perks at certain milestones, character progression and combat is deepened.

Building has never been better in Conan Exiles; with a complete overhaul adding a faster, easier to use interface for both keyboards and controllers, and a tailored Creative Mode that lets players fly through the air to build without restrictions.

The update includes a host of further improvements and additions, including tweaks to followers, new placeables and crafting materials related to sorcery and rituals, updates to the world to make it even more alive and dangerous, and more!

Conan Exiles originally launched in early 2018 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Over the years it has enjoyed numerous updates and expansions, becoming one of the first popular sandbox survival games of its type. A lot has changed since its original launch when we scored Exiles a 6/10 in our review.
