The Conan Exiles Blood and Sand pack is here and it's bringing with it new pieces to build arenas, new weapons, and a whole lot more! If you've ever wanted to get your gladiator on and battle it out in the finest colosseum you could build, you now will have the tools to hand to make the magic happen!

Conan Exiles is a sandbox survival RPG set in the world of Conan The Barbarian will all the trimmings you'd expect. Occultic monsters, deadly warriors, and a mountain full of intriguing content await players who want to hop into this game. Best of all, you can set up your own server a la Rust, so no worries about griefers coming into your world and busting things up if you'd prefer to just play with your friends!

Conan Exiles Blood And Sand — New Content

A Steam Community news post details the new content in Conan Exiles Blood and Sand. One of the most interesting highlights is the Battle Standard, a placable item that allows you to designate a PvP area on a non-PvP server. This way, you can set up battle arenas or similar zones for fighting it out with your friends without worrying about being stabbed in the back in the middle of a PvE encounter.

Two new weapons are also making their way into the game: short swords and two-handed axes. Short swords are billed as a "faster alternative" best used against single enemies, and two-handed axes work like a combination of warhammers and dual-wielding axes.

Conan Exiles has done a pretty good job of constantly putting out new content, one of the most notable of which was the Anniversary Update in May 2019.

29 new arena building pieces, 15 new armor pieces in three sets, 19 new weapons in the "Bloodletter" set, 15 new war banner placeables, and more are a part of this latest bit of DLC. Read the Steam Community news post for more details, or you can check out the latest patch notes. You can pick up the Blood and Sand pack on Steam at a price of $9.99 or your regional equivalent; check out the trailer below to see some of these new features in motion!
