Cyanide has revealed more information on Blood Bowl 3, an adaptation of Games Workshop’s cult board game. According to project lead Gautier Brésard and game designer Basile Bastian, the game will have 12 teams at launch.
The teams that will return from the previous entries are: Human, Orc, Dark Elf, Elven Union, Skaven, Dwarf, Nurgle and Chaos Chosen. Blood Bowl 3 will also have four new teams, 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 has 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.
Blood Bowl 3 runs on Unreal Engine and will be the most complete and faithful adaptation of the board game to date. This new entry will also introduce Special Play Cards. Players can use these cards 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 3 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. After launch, Blood Bowl 3 will also be getting more content, competitions, tweaks and community support.
Blood Bowl 3 is coming to the PC in early 2021.
