Conan Exiles Age Of War Content News & Reveals
As for what's to come in the Age of War update, Funcom outlined its content roadmap, which will be split into three chapters, akin to the Age of Sorcery update. The first Chapter which launched on 22nd June 2023, saw a massive shift from the Age of Sorcery as the Age of War will primarily be combat-orientated.
Clan Hoards have been introduced in the first Chapter as the Stygian invasions within the Exiled Lands inspire this combat mode. Clans will collect and stockpile treasure within their treasure rooms, new building structures coming with the update and safeguarding them from invading clans.
Clans can find these treasures throughout the Exiled Lands and the Isle of Siptah but must do everything possible to find these treasures and protect them. This will also see Clan Emblems added to the game, making it easier to identify your clan, which new workbenches will arrive for players to produce their emblems for banners, shields, and more.
Chapter 2 will primarily be based on improving existing content and features and will continue the story introduced in Chapter 1. Purges will get a massive reworking, and your treasure coffer will serve as the main "centerpiece" for the Purges, whereby if you speak with your treasurer, it will spread the word throughout the Exiled Lands and gain attention from possible challengers.
According to the developer post, there will be threat levels ranging from Level 1 to 10, which could be expanded on at a later date. Nevertheless, this should give you the opportunity to reinforce your defenses before initiating a Purge, as higher-leveled enemies can make defending your treasures even harder.
Additionally, Chapter 2 will see a refreshed Bazaar with new content added to the in-game Shop for players to acquire. Likewise, a brand new Battle Pass will also be included in the latest update, with details on its contents to be revealed once more information becomes available.
The Age of War Chapter 2 update launched on 21st September 2023 across all available platforms. Conan Exiles is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Epic Games Store and Steam.
