Publisher Nacon and developer Cyanide shared new information and screenshots for Blood Bowl III during the Games Made in France event from October 29 to November 1.
Get the details below.
12 Teams Available at Launch
Project lead Gautier Bresard and game designer Basile Bastian first detailed the 12 teams available at the game’s launch. The indispensable Human, Orc, Dark Elf, Elven Union, Skaven, Dwarf, Nurgle and Chaos Chosen teams will of course be available. Four new teams will be added, including two from the new edition of the board game: the Black Orcs and the Imperial Nobility. The latter can limit the movement of opponents through dedicated skills. The last two teams are none other than the Old World Alliance, which includes dwarves and humans, and the Chaos Renegades, which is made up of players so dirty and cheating that no other team wanted them. Each team will have different strategies based on passing, dodging or beating opponents to the ground.
Special Play Cards
Blood Bowl III runs on Unreal Engine and will be the most complete and faithful adaptation of the board game to date. For example, it introduces Special Play Cards, which can be used to add temporary skills to units or to assassinate a member of the opposing team before the match begins.
Cyanide has also added its own spin on the spoof world of Blood Bowl III with a campaign mode and the inclusion of different characters, such as sponsors and charismatic Star Players who will challenge players of the game.
Finally, the developers provided information on customization. There will be more customization options than previous editions: colors, patterns, logos, pieces of armor, stadiums, and many other elements can be changed.
Post-Launch Content and Updates
After launch, Blood Bowl III will also be getting more content, competitions, tweaks, and community support.
Blood Bowl III is a game based on strategy, audacity, and risk tied to how the dice fall in a wacky world. The developers have also focused on making the game accessible for new players with a redesigned interface, user-friendly feedback, and flexible timers.
Blood Bowl III is due out for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC via Steam in early 2021.
