The MOP Up: Conan Exiles forms ‘strike team’ to attack Xbox One server instability


Life in Conan Exiles is by nature harsh, but Xbox One players have it worse than most thanks to a slew of issues that are plaguing the survival title. While some of these problems have been resolved, Funcom says that “client crashes, Out of Memory crashes, and dashboard issues” still remain.

As such, a strike team is working on the situation: “We have been able to add additional programmers to the strike team that is working on these problems and we hope to have a new version that addresses a few of these issues in the next few weeks.”

And this is just the beginning of the rest of the news! Read on for a roundup of other smaller MMO news stories and videos from this past week in this edition of The MOP Up (and if you don’t see a news story that we should have covered, drop us a tip)!
