Blood Bowl (X360/PC)

With the big game right around the corner, there's no better time to brush up on your football tactics and skills. With the unlikely forefather of American football and inspiration from the fantasy universe of Warhammer, Blood Bowl is an ultraviolent team sport. Assemble a team of Orcs, Lizardmen, Goblins and many other fantasy creatures and enter the bloodiest arena ever!

For every great play, there's an equally great fumble, missed interception or player casualty. Blood Bowl brings the best of the original tabletop experience to your fingertips with incredible detail and vicious visuals. Players are tasked with managing their team's players, inducements (bribing refs/apothecaries for healing/cheerleaders/etc.), handling the tactics on the field as well as keeping players in top physical form throughout the season. With full season modes and online matches, Blood Bowl offers players the chance to satiate their pigskin bloodlust.

“I've watched a lot of football games in my day, both live and on television,” said Aubrey Norris, Manager of Human-Orc Relations at SouthPeak. “I can safely say that Blood Bowl is the only one where I've seen a Goblin on a pogo-stick jump over the defensive line and bounce his way to a touchdown. I mean, really - where else are you going to see that?”

SouthPeak’s extensive portfolio of over 40 interactive entertainment games spans a variety of platforms and genres including RPG, simulation, FPS, sports, strategy, puzzle and fighting.

Blood Bowl’s retail PC and Xbox 360 versions are available now at an MSRP of $39.99 and $49.99 USD, respectively. The PSP version is expected to hit the field in Spring of 2010.
