'Blood Bowl: Legendary Edition' Shows Off The Norse - Screens

by Rainier on June 2, 2010 @ 8:44 a.m. PDT

Blood Bowl is a "game" of American football played by the insane warriors of the fantasy Warhammer universe. The Blood Bowl: Legendary Edition adds 12 new playable races, new and more impressive stadiums, a new Story mode, as well as many additions and updates.

Playable in real time or turn based, the game is a fine mix between strategy and sports game. It is also an incredible, brutal game in which no holds are barred to lead your team to the Blood Bowl's final! Compose your own team of Humans, Elves, Dwarfs, Orcs or any other fantasy creatures, and let it gain experience during the many championships and tournaments that take place in Warhammer's Old World.

Blood Bowl: Legendary Edition is the ultimate Blood Bowl edition! 12 new playable races join the 8 races already available in the 2009 edition. Thus, Blood Bowl fans will find all their favourite races from the original board game. Undeads, Amazons, Ogres and 9 other races enter Blood Bowl's tournaments. All 20 races have their personal style, tactics and unique skills which give each game a diversity rarely seen in a strategy game.

The Norse

Coming from the Old World's coldest lands, the Norse have proudly made a stadium from their own lands available for the new Blood Bowl season! Make sure you take warm clothes, as it is a snow-covered, outdoor pitch! Norse teams are composed of real heavy-hitting warriors. Although their teams include traditional ‘ball-handling’ players such as throwers, blitzers and runners, the Norse feel more comfortable in all-out assaults utilizing their brutish Ulfwerners. They aren’t afraid to block even the strongest of opponents! And if their natural berserk playing style is not enough to take down a particularly tough opponent, they can still count on a little helping hand – or huge helping claw to be more precise - from the Yhetees, shaggier, fiercer and much wilder than many of the big-guys from other teams!


There are also new and more impressive stadiums to welcome all these new teams. From the snowy Norse stadium to the creepy interior of a crypt, the change of scenery is guaranteed.

A new Story mode is introduced, in which players will play as a freelance coach. They will have to lead several famous teams and take up many challenges through a story revealing the origins of Blood Bowl, the Old World and its many races that relentlessly compete with each other in merciless games. A newly scripted tutorial will teach all new comers everything they need to know about coaching a Blood Bowl team!

Of course, in order to stay as close as possible to the official rules, many additions and updates have been made to better match the latest Living Rulebook edition, used in all official board games official tournaments.
