4/2/2010 6:56:00 AM
Those that enjoyed Blood Bowl
might be happy to hear a new edition is coming to the PC. The Blood Bowl: Legendary Edition
brings 12 new races to the game making a total of 20 races altogether. It's not just that as you get some new stadiums and items to use as well in the game.
Something that I don't expect in a "sports" game is a story mode but that's what the new version has. You're taking part as a coach and have to guide several teams through various challenges which will give you the origin of how the bloody sport started as well as other aspects of the game. For those that have never played, there's a new tutorial to help you get started.
Finally, the latest rules have been added in from the official board game. Check out some of the new races below.
Cyanide and Focus Home Interactive are honored to reveal Blood Bowl: Legendary Edition that will come out on PC at the end of 2010.
Blood Bowl is a video game adapted from Games Workshop's famous board game. 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.
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.
Blood Bowl: Legendary Edition will come out on PC during the fourth quarter of 2010.
