Conan: Exiles – Isle of Siptah is probably the DLC that I have anticipated more than any other in the history of my gaming life.
That being said, this came with extreme disappointment as the game on PlayStation 4 appears to be broken.
Sure, the game starts and you can run around doing your thing in this neat, deadly world. However, graphics keep switching back and forth from high res to low res and then NPCs and enemies either have a delay in loading or don’t load at all.
Furthermore, the game gets really f’n choppy to the point of absolute madness.
Every time I try to conquer a dungeon, before I get to the end, enemies just stop spawning and I get stuck, unable to progress and beat the dungeon.
I attempted to fix these issues, as I thought that maybe my files were f’d up due to building so much shit in the regular game. So I deleted all of my save files and even deleted the game files and DLC files. I then redownloaded and reinstalled everything and the problems were still there.
So I stopped playing this after a few days and didn’t even start on a new fortress build because what’s the point?
If they fix these issues, I’ll gladly give this a go again and update this review.
All that being said, the new map looks amazing. I just wish I could play the damn game without massive issues.
Pairs well with: other open world survival RPG-type games.
