Conan Exiles unloads its kitchen sink patch and opens up its test server

The sizable update that Conan Exiles fans have been anticipating since, uh, yesterday has finally arrived on the servers. Chants of "Patch 15.2.2017! Patch 15.2.2017!" are being heard around the world as players rejoice about all of the improvements to the bloodthirsty sandbox, including feat rebalancing and girl heads that don't look deformed. This game has high standards!

If you don't want to be caught off-guard with any future releases, you now have the option to check out bleeding-edge builds on the new "testlive" server. While not all upcoming patches will be posted to this branch, those that are will be available to anyone to test, whether player or server admin. There are also new forums devoted to all things testlive, although only forum mods and Funcom staff can make new threads there.

"Testlive builds can be played online on an official Funcom server or offline locally," Funcom said. "The Testlive server will be reset constantly, so don’t get very attached to your progress there."

And here I thought the girl heads were just the result of being clubbed a few times too many.

I never really understood the appeal of these sandbox survival games. But more power to the people that are in those sorts of things! Hope it ends up a fun game!

I don't get the appeal of most of it either. But I am seeing screenshots of some pretty impressive structures/buildings that people are creating. This might just work as a rebound title for Landmark players depending on how robust the building system becomes.

Would have preferred they unloaded this patch to thwe test server first as it has borked a ton of stuff. Placeables being invisible, waterskins not being fillable etc... the joys of Alpha lol

I've been surprised at how much fun my bf and I have been having with this. I actually sprang for a private server so I could tailor it exactly to how we want things and it's a blast so far, even with the bugs. This could shape up into something very fun in the future.

Absolutely have been loving this game and pretty much all I've been playing since it went live. Very impressed with the dev team and quick fixes.

Bugs, latency, incomplete features, early access and yet for me it's still more fun than many of the other online multiplayer/MMO games I have installed on my PC.

I confess to being intrigued by the notion of an unfinished game in early access having a test server - isn't the whole game in test?

It's pretty common to have beta branches to EA games. People don't like to have their games completely destroyed by testing, and it gives modders a way to prepare mods for a new update.

Also, EA games are really just released games that hide behind a "we're not finished so please don't destroy us with reviews" moniker.

Indeed they are:)
