More Blood Bowl 3 details
Following Games Made in France, studio Cyanide revealed more information on Blood Bowl 3. Project lead, Gautier Brésard, and game designer, Basile Bastian, detailed 12 teams available at launch. The indispensable Human, Orc, Dark Elf, Elven Union, Skaven, Dwarf, Nurgle and Chaos Chosen teams will, of course, be available. Four new teams will be added, including two from the new edition of the board game: the Black Orcs and the Imperial Nobility.
Blood Bowl 3 runs on the Unreal Engine. Cyanide aims to produce the most complete and faithful adaptation of the board game to date. For example, it introduces Special Play Cards, which can be used to add temporary skills to units or to assassinate a member of the opposing team before the match begins. Cyanide also has 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.
Lastly, there will be more customization options than previous editions. This includes colors, patterns, logos, pieces of armor, stadiums and many other elements. After launch, Blood Bowl 3 will also be getting more content, competitions, tweaks and community support.
