These range from various objectives that often involve events to a new kind of encounter that makes the Exiled Lands and Isle of Siptah more alive and dangerous than ever. There's also a new item store called Bazaar that makes paid DLC content easier to access and browse; the Bazaar does not contain anything about player power.

Sorcery

Conan Exiles will play host to Sorcery, an entirely new system introduced to the game. Players will have a choice to sacrifice their life force in return for corrupting sorceries, ranging from slinging fireballs and magic missiles to conjuring new demonic allies, darkness, call-down storms, and more.
