Conan Exiles Free Weekend Starts Today; New Expansion Next Week

Funcom announces Isle of Siptah, a new expansion for Conan Exiles which will bring new content to the Hyborian Age survival game when it enters Early Access on September 15th. They also announce that a free weekend will kick off in the game today on Steam starting at 1:00 pm EDT. Here's an Announcement Trailer from the expansion showing off this new way of playing the game and here are the details:
Conan Exiles: Isle of Siptah offers an even playing field for new and old players alike. Everyone gets to start fresh with a new character on the fabled Isle of Siptah, an island engulfed in magical storms and eldritch creatures, but also a place of beauty and opportunity. The island features more than a dozen new dungeons, known as vaults, surges of sorcery that spawn vile creatures and NPCs, and an ominous dark tower surrounded by a magical storm. Isle of Siptah is a whole new way of experiencing the online survival game, where players now will be able to summon magical portals that forcibly pull NPCs from the Exiled Lands and into this new and mysterious place. Players will have to compete for these opportunities, creating bloody conflict and an all-new gameplay loop.

Isle of Siptah comes with two new building sets, allowing you to construct pirate themed towns of flotsam and majestic castles with stormglass. You will be able to ride into battle on the back of a brand-new mount, the mighty rhinoceros. Acquiring the game in early access will even grant you a limited edition War-torn Rhino Mount Skin. The new building sets and mounts will also be accessible on the base game map, as long as you have Isle of Siptah installed.

They seem to be putting some work into the expansion. I wonder if that had anything to do with the game's removal from the EGS freebies?

How exactly?

This has been in the works for about a year if not more. I don't see how a expansion is affected in any way by some second rate steam wanna be giveaway that did or did not happen pretty recently. shrug
