'Blood Bowl II' (ALL) Legendary Edition Pre-order Gets You Beta Access

by Rainier on Aug. 24, 2017 @ 1:59 a.m. PDT

Blood Bowl II is an adaptation of Games Workshop’s board game that twists American football with a fantasy universe inspired by Warhammer, all in a bloody and explosive cocktail of turn-based strategy.

Humans, Orcs, Dwarfs, Elves, Skaven, Beastmen and cheerleaders give all they’ve got! Watch the various iconic teams from the Blood Bowl world throwing both punches and the ball in an effort to score touchdowns – or simply to cripple and maim the opposing teams. The epitome of Blood Bowl: American Football, mixed with the fantasy world of Warhammer, resulting in a very deep and tactical turn-based game where crushing your opponent under your boots is just as important as getting hold of the ball to score a touchdown.

Blood Bowl 2 is even more ambitious than its predecessor in all aspects of the game, with numerous extra features and the highest production values. Its brand new graphics engine has been specially developed for this sequel showcasing improved visuals, sound, and animation.

In Blood Bowl 2, fan-favorite commentators: Jim Johnson (the Vampire) and Bob Bifford (the Ogre ex-star player) will be with us, flesh and blood, throughout the game. They will be modelled, and animated in their Cabalvision studio that will be the main interface for the game! The whole game will be presented in a Cabalvision theme – the official Blood Bowl TV! – where Jim & Bob will guide players, comment their decisions and will even interview key star players appearing in the huge campaign mode. Of course, they will also grace us with their wild commentaries during the matches!

Much of the Legendary Edition's content is available to test in this beta. Try your hand at coaching an exciting new roster of teams: tame the wild Amazons, command the mighty Ogres, or desperately attempt to score a touchdown with a Halfling team! Also entering the pitch are the Vampires, the Underworld Denizens, the Goblins, the Elven Union, and the all-new Kislev Circus teams – highly agile players joined by their fearsome tamed bears. Additionally, all the races from the Team Pack will also be temporarily available to every Beta tester, regardless of whether they own them or not. With new features come even bloodier, crazy possibilities. Ever wanted to lead a team made up of several different races? You can do exactly that, or even lead All-Star teams comprised of only Star Players! During this Beta, enjoy also many new tools and options enriching an already deep multiplayer experience.

The two new solo modes, Challenge Mode and Eternal League, will be coming at the Legendary Edition’s full launch. The Challenge mode will offer a variety of wild match situations that must be solved within a single turn. Whether your objective is pushing an ogre off the pitch, sending a Thrall to his death or scoring the most improbable touchdown in Blood Bowl history, your coaching talents will be pushed to the absolute limit! The Eternal League will be an unending career mode for any of your available teams. Compete in matches across multiple seasons, participating in tournaments with different sizes and rules, as you keep evolving and levelling up your team.

Pre-ordering the Legendary Edition or the Official Expansion on Steam grants you a 10% discount and beta access. Pre-ordering the Legendary Edition will also instantly unlock the Blood Bowl 2 base game + Team Pack races.

Blood Bowl 2: Legendary Edition offers ALL the official races from the Blood Bowl board game, including the sly Goblins, as well as a brand new race, the Kislev Circus and their ferocious Tame Bears! These races are coming along with their Star Players and a new Khemri stadium, located at the feet of their imposing pyramids.

Blood Bowl 2: Legendary Edition also contains loads of new content: new races, new game modes as well as many new tools and options enriching an already deep multiplayer experience. Blood Bowl 2 Legendary Edition will be available as a stand-alone game for newcomers, and as an affordable expansion for all Blood Bowl 2 players.

Experience new game modes such as a brand new Solo Career mode, or the new Challenge mode, which will put your wits and skills to the test through crazy and challenging game situations. And for the first time in the history of Blood Bowl, spice-up your matches with teams made up from a combination of players from different races, or go wild and lead a team of All-Star Players! Last but not least, Cyanide is developing new features and options for multiplayer - these new options and tools, long-requested by a passionate community, will greatly expand the possibilities offered to players to communicate together, create, set up and customize their online leagues and competitions.

Blood Bowl 2: Legendary Edition will be available as a stand-alone game for newcomers, and as an affordable extension for all Blood Bowl 2 players later this year (Sept. 2017) on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
