Enhanced with new features from the latest edition of the legendary board game, Blood Bowl 3 is a video game adaptation that retains all the same offbeat humour and will appeal to all fans of turn-based tactics games and fantasy football!
Blood Bowl, originally a miniatures board game created by Jervis Johnson for Games Workshop, is set in an alternate Warhammer Fantasy world and acts as a parody of American football. The game is populated by traditional fantasy elements such as human warriors, goblins, dwarves, elves, orcs and trolls and was first released in 1986.
In November 2020, Games Workshop released a new version of the game – Blood Bowl Second Season Edition, featuring a new ruleset that Blood Bowl (the video game) will incorporate.
New to the game? Stand up to the six trainers looking to crush you in the new Campaign mode. You can also play online and battle in PvP matches with brand-new factions and a variety of game modes enhance the experience.
While waiting for the Season 1 official ladder, you can play a quick match against an opponent of the same level selected via the matchmaking system. You can also create your own competitions with the tournament system managed by gamers themselves.
Blood Bowl 3 has a range of customisation options designed to bring the in-game experience to life. From team colours to player equipment items and cheerleaders, everyone can build their team in their own image with all the options available.
For the first time, Blood Bowl 3 will offer a season system for the player community. This format promotes competitive play and offers new content as part of the Blood Pass.
A new season starts every three months, adding a new faction and a new Blood Pass. By playing matches, you climb the 50 tiers of the Blood Pass while unlocking free rewards and the new faction of the current season after reaching the final tier.
These seasons are also an opportunity to enhance the game as they will add new features and prevent players from resting on their laurels!
Blood Bowl 3 is available on Steam, Epic Games Store, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One. The Nintendo SwitchTM version will be released later.
