Save game data location[edit]

System Location

When playing the game online saves are done on the server in question.

In singleplayer mode the game actually runs a local server instance.

Of note are the following files:

  • game.db - Game instance database (SQLite3).
  • SaveGames\savegamefile.sav - Additional character data.

You will see multiple game_backup files, it creates and removes these automatically.

If you wish to backup your private server or singleplayer instance, back up the following folders (and subfolders):

<Steam-folder>/steamapps/common/Conan Exiles/ConanSandbox/Saved/}} <Steam-folder>/steamapps/common/Conan Exiles/ConanSandbox/Mods/}}
