Rust Vehicles Public Testing

Rust will soon be getting modular cars that players can modify and drive around. With this being a major new feature, we're releasing it initially in a separate version of the game, which is available to try right now.

Our aim with this new beta branch is to allow for plenty of testing not just in terms of fixing bugs, but also in adjusting how the new vehicles fit into the game as a whole. Various aspects may potentially still change such as how they're acquired and used, or balance to their costs and statistics. Please be aware that right now there will be bugs and missing features in this branch.

If you're trying out the vehicles branch, we'd like to get your bug reports, plus any suggestions for changes you think are needed relating to modular cars. The end goal is to have modular cars fit well into the game as something where the value is equal to the time and energy required to use them.

Details of how to access the branch, what to expect and where to give feedback can be found on the Blog Page[rust.facepunch.com]

PC Hotfix (13.05.2020)

Greetings, Exiles!

We’re releasing a new hotfix addressing some of the most reported issues after our latest update. In particular, we’re focusing our attention on some server crashing issues that have been reported over the weekend, as well as a few problems with followers where they would die out of falling damage, or follow too close. We’ve also sneaked in an exploit fix and a visual fix to an issue that would cause nearby entities to move as if they were stuttering.


Thanks for your continued feedback, and stay safe!

Please remember that updates can mess with your installed mods. We suggest taking a backup of your current database before updating to any new patch if you have mods installed.



  • Addressed a number of server crashes.


  • Fixed an exploit that would cause a server to crash under specific circumstances.


  • Fixed an issue where followers would die of falling damage
  • Adjusted collision on horses and rhinos to avoid them bumping the player when on follow. We’re working on a better solution for these and other pets.


  • Fixed a LOD issue that would cause NPCs and wildlife to move “choppy” at lower distances than intended.

PC Hotfix (08.05.2020)

Greetings Exiles!

We’re releasing a hotfix that aims to address some of the performance issues observed during the deployment of our latest update, particularly the CPU usage spikes. We’re also including a couple of AI fixes for followers.

Thanks for your ongoing support. Stay safe!

Please remember that updates can mess with your installed mods. We suggest taking a backup of your current database before updating to any new patch if you have mods installed.



  • Fixed an issue which would cause increased CPU utilization.
  • Fixed an out of memory issue on dedicated servers.


  • Increased security measures against server flooding.


  • Fixed an issue where followers would refuse to attack under specific circumstances.
  • Thralls would randomly enter a space-time continuum paradox upon teleporting which would let them be unable to move when commanded. We fixed this with science.

Celebrating 2 Years of Conan Exiles

Greetings, Exiles!

And congratulations on surviving yet another year in the savage and astounding Exiled Lands. While you have matured, acquired new skills and left an everlasting impression on your surroundings, the entire world of Conan Exiles has evolved with you.

Today we mark our second anniversary by taking a closer look at the past year in The Exiled Lands:


GIDDY-UP!

Mounts were the most requested feature of them all and they went live on December 5th of last year. Horses can now be captured, trained, mounted and, in true Conan Exiles style, used for combat. Make the ground tremble and your foes shiver, as you charge towards your enemies, spear in hand!


NEW END-GAME DUNGEONS

Exactly one year ago The Sunken City and the Sepermeru Silver Mine were made available for only the bravest adventurers. Since then a further two dungeon locations have been revealed. You can now uncover dark secrets in the ancient Wine Cellar and test your strength in the Warmaker’s Sanctuary, both of which contain unique treasures.


PVP REVAMP


While a number of changes have been made to further improve upon player versus player combat, the most noticeable change is probably that of the Battle Standard[www.conanexiles.com], allowing the creation of gladiator arenas, even on PvE servers. Fear not, however, participation is voluntary.


RP LOVE


Whether or not you are a roleplayer, emoting at your friends and taunting your enemies is always a delight. Several new emotes have been added, as well as new war paints, outfits, buildings and placeables.


NEW WEAPONS AND ARMOR



Hundreds of new weapons and armor pieces have found their way into The Exiled Lands, including the savage Great Axe of the North and the chivalrous Poitain Cavalier armor.


NEW DLCs

Architects of Argos, Riders of Hyboria, Debaucheries of Derketo, Blood and Sand and The Riddle of Steel were all made available during the past 12 months, each with their own theme of new building pieces, placeables, weapons and armor. DLCs do not affect gameplay balance or provide any in-game advantage, but grant you further cosmetic options.


TWITCHCON



TwitchCon in San Diego in September gave us the opportunity to meet in person with many members of the community. It proved once and for all that Conan Exiles players are the coolest, friendliest and most badass people on Earth. Thank you to everyone who came, who also got an exclusive look at our published title Moons of Madness[www.moonsofmadness.com] and upcoming hack ‘n’ slash Conan Chop Chop[www.conanchopchop.com], and we hope to see you all again as soon as the state of the world permits it!




COMMUNITY CREATIONS
While we’re proud of the work we have put into Conan Exiles over the past 12 months, we wouldn’t be anything without our amazing community. We are constantly blown away by your creativity and contributions. While we want to spotlight more of our modder and content creators going forward, we picked a small range of examples to show case here. Thank you everyone for sharing your creations with us. We appreciate all of you.

First up is “Blast to the Past” a series by Tavern Tales, showcasing the potential of Story Telling and Roleplaying in Conan Exiles. You can check out the first episode right here:


Everyone loves Neebs Gaming and so do we. They have their own Easter Egg in the game which you might have discovered already but did you know they made an official Conan Exiles Song? It’s super catchy!


And we can’t NOT include something about spiders..

PixelCaveGaming creates ongoing amazing content and this beautiful Tree Village they’ve built is no exception:



Michele Tosoni, tells use the story from a different perspective for once, namely that of a Shaleback.
We loved that approach.



WHAT'S NEXT FOR CONAN EXILES
The past 12 months have been exciting, but we’re even more thrilled about what comes next. We have several quality of life improvements in the works, as well as additions deriving from the rich Conan lore. We’re looking forward to sharing these plans with you shortly. Till then, have fun in The Exiled Lands and may your enemies forever tremble at your feet!
