[Update]: Conan Exiles' Isle of Siptah expansion has added a large, demon-infested new world to explore.

While for most people the presence of anti-cheat or anti-tamper software has a negligible effect on performance, there is always a portion of the playerbase that ends up with some sort of problem, be that crashing or stuttering. If you belong in the latter group, or if you're simply not a fan of DRM in general, you'll be happy to hear that Conan Exiles has now removed Denuvo with its latest update.

The patch has also brought in a variety of server optimizations, corrected a couple of issues that could result in crashes, as well as brought in the usual assortment of bug and exploit fixes. So if you've previously encountered any sort of technical problems that pushed you away from Conan Exiles, it might be worth giving it another try and seeing if things have gotten any better since the update.

When it comes to the actual gameplay, the update was mostly focused on rebalancing followers and world bosses. According to the patch notes the thralls should now be "slightly less of a powerhouse", while the health of the world bosses has been reduced across the board in order to compensate. As you might imagine, the goal behind these changes is to put more power into the hands of the players themselves, rather than their AI companions.

You can learn more about this update, as well as follow Conan Exiles moving forward, over at Steam. Have fun!
