has a nice premise: parody Warhammer and football and add in tongue-in-cheek humor and solid fun. It's actually based on a board game that was created back in 1987. When do you think they'll make a "Blood Checkers"?
Back on topic, the video game contains 8 playable races (out of 20 from the board game) but it's about to +1 by making dark elves a free downloadable addition. If you take a look at the screens I'm sure you'll agree the dark elves look pretty awesome.
At any rate, expect this new race "soon" and check out the game's site
for more details now.
Blood Bowl: Dark Elves - Available for Free Soon!
The PC adaptation of Games Workshop's legendary board game has established itself brilliantly in all European countries since its release earlier this year, leading the charts in Germany, France and the United Kingdom. This success helped Blood Bowl build a great and ever-expanding community of players that regularly compete online on the game's servers.
While the PC game already offers eight races from Blood Bowl world (from a selection of more than twenty races), players will be pleased to know that the Dark Elves will be available as a free download this November. The full game will also be available as a digital download, and in most stores in a special version of the game called the "Blood Bowl Dark Elves Edition". This edition will feature the entire Blood Bowl game with the addition of the famous Dark Elves.

Dark Elves combine Elven agility with a cruel brutality. They are perfectly at ease playing the ball or crushing skulls with their callous fists. Furthermore, their Witch Elves excel in that field, as long as they don't get caught up in the euphoria of battle! Dark Elves are masters of deception and can also call upon deadly Assassins to instill fear (and the cold blade of a dagger!) in their adversaries' heart.
An ultra-violent strategy game based on Warhammer Fantasy and American football, Blood Bowl allows players to create the ultimate “fantasy” sports teams. Coaches can build bone-crushing teams of Orcs, Wood Elves, Humans, Dwarfs and many more fantastic creatures – then throw them into the stadium for the ultimate blood sport! Blood Bowl is strategic, action-packed and violent, requiring coaches to use their best tactics, team design – and a dose of pure ruthless bloodlust always helps too!
