Conan Exiles is challenging game that will put your survival skills to the test. You start with nothing and need to build up an empire with your bare hands. As its name suggests, this open-world survival game is set in the brutal lands of Conan the Barbarian.

Conan Exiles is still work in progress, but its developers confirm it won’t stay in Early Access for more than a year. If you choose to buy this game, expect to encounter some technical issues. Of course, their frequency will decrease with every patch Funcom releases.

In this article, we’re going to list the most common Conan Exiles bugs reported by players just to give you an idea of what to expect in terms of bugs. Conan Exiles has received mixed reviews on Steam mainly due to all the bugs that players have experienced so far.

Conan Exiles bugs

Game lag

Players report that Conan Exiles suffers from terrible lag, making the game unplayable. As surprising as this may sound, the annoying lag occurs even when players stand still.

Even when u standing still u lag out while gathering, Thralls are flying and punching, when u run u rubberband […] have really big hopes for this game, which I think is already there and everythign im hyped for is in the game BUT it is under no cicumstanses playable at any level with this lag, u can seriously dont do anything at all in the game.

Conan Exiles crashes on launch

Many players can’t even launch the game due to Unreal Engine errors. Here’s how one player describes this issue:

Fatal error: [File:C:\UE4\CSAND\Engine\Source\Runtime\Windows\D3D11RHI\Private\D3D11Util.cpp] [Line: 176]
Unreal Engine is exiting due to D3D device being lost. (Error: 0x887A0006 – ‘HUNG’) Crashes right before main menu every single time.

Servers are unavailable

Gamers can’t connect to Conan Exiles servers due to various bugs. Some are stuck on “Preparing world” or receive an authentication error and are sent back to the main menu, while other players can’t even detect the game’s servers.

I can’t get into a a server. I can create character, watch the intro video, then I’m stuck on preparing world. I can hear things in the background but the screen doesn’t change.

Text box issues

It appears that Conan Exiles interface is far from perfect. Gamers can’t make the text box bigger or scroll back and forth. They can only see the latest message they received or sent.

The text box cannot be edited to increase it’s size, nor can you even properly scroll back and forth. Please Funcom give us UI edit or a larger chatbox, and the option to properly scroll back and forth chat.

Players can’t control their character

Some players even report they can’t control their character because the game simply drags them in a different direction. It appears that this bug is caused by some kind of tethering feature meant for consoles that can’t handle two players being in different locations due to low memory.

The game is pulling me into 1 direction and i cant walk the other way its really bugged somehow. Anyone knows how to fix it ?
