After playing Conan Exiles for a prolonged amount of time, you may find The Exiles Lands to become antiquated. While custom maps are available, they run the risk of needing updates to work or missing the scale of an official world. Thankfully the Isles of Siptah DLC covers all these bases, allowing you to explore a brand new map with many new features and points of interest. Explore vaults, battle new monsters, and find the mystery of the foreboding tower stretching into the air. When using Apex Hosting, changing to Isles of Siptah is as simple as using our dropdown menu, so we have created this tutorial to guide you through these necessary steps.
(Optional) Backing up the World
While switching to Isles of Siptah should not overwrite the main world file, we still advise backing up the world just in case.

About Isles of Siptah
Isles of Siptah is a massive expansion to Conan Exiles, providing a new world, creatures, and opportunities. Defeat the demonic monsters that appear from deadly storms, use new building sets, and much more in this DLC.
Once you start an Isles of Siptah world, you will soon find the vast landscape that is available to explore. Large mountain ranges, green forests, and foggy depths await you in this world. Experience the various ruins, find ancient puzzles, and much more.
With so much new land, many monsters roam around waiting for their next prey. Giant spiders and their children, bug-like enemies, and many more lurk around every corner. While these beasts pose a threat, other players may also be your downfall.
Scattered throughout the island are various buildings and artifacts with an unknown purpose. From alien-like structures to the ever-mysterious tower looming above everything, you must investigate and find the true meaning behind them.
My server is still on The Exiled Lands map:
If the customization has been changed to Isles of Siptah but the map is not changing, try to fully stop the server and restart it once more. This should refresh the server and allow the new map setting to take effect upon startup. You can tell when you joined Isles of Siptah successfully as you will spawn near a shipwreck, rather than a desert.
You do not have the DLC required:
In order to join a server running a DLC map, all players will also need to have the DLC purchased and installed on their own computers. If you are receiving this message when attempting to join, ensure you have purchased Isles of Siptah from your game launcher first. Afterwards, restart Conan Exiles and attempt to join once again.
