Blood Bowl became a little darker yesterday

There is a new race available for Blood Bowl
, the dark elves. The game started off with eight playable races but has expanded its roster. It's basically a football-inspired violent sports game that requires both tactics and violent skill. Already launched in Europe, the game will be hitting the US next week and will be called Blood Bowl Dark Elves Edition
since it will contain the new race. It's not a clever name but gets the point across.
To celebrate the event, Focus Home Entertainment has released a new video showcasing the dark elves. Enjoy!
Blood Bowl: Dark Elves Edition – In Video and on Steam Starting November 26!
New video and screens showcase the newest race to join the game
Blood Bowl, the imaginary forerunner of football, is an ultra violent team sport set in the Warhammer fantasy universe. It lets players compose a team of Orcs, Elves, Humans, Dwarves and many other fantasy creatures before jumping into the bloodiest arenas. The sport game is both strategic and violent. It requires tactics, a certain amount of game-sense and a lot of self-confidence.
Recently released in Europe where it reached first place on the PC charts, Blood Bowl will be launched in the United States on the Steam digital platform starting November 26. Preorders will start on Thursday, November 19th.
A brand new version of the game will be available for American players and Steam aficionados. In this new edition, the eight races already in place in the original game will be joined by a ninth playable race: the dreadful Dark Elves.
A dozen new players enter Blood Bowl's fields with their own Star Player, their cheerleaders, their design and their unique animations.
We invite you to meet the new race right away with an exclusive video showing these warriors that combine Elves' agility with more obvious brutality. A real treat to play and to watch!
