Blood Bowl 2 Beta Launched

The sequel to the video game adaptation of Games Workshop's famous boardgame that combines American football with the fantasy world of Warhammer, Blood Bowl 2, is officially in beta. In this explosive cocktail of turn-based strategy that also brings humor and brutality, players must lead the Reikland Reavers in an original solo story campaign narrated by hilarious commentators Jim & Bob from Cabalvision. Players can also create teams from races such as Humans, Orcs, Skaven, and Dwarves as they test their strategies in multiplayer, as well as AI in one-off matches.

All customized multiplayer leagues, as well as their teams, created during beta will be preserved so players can start leveling up their favorite team without any regret! When the game officially launches, other races will be made available including the Bretonnians. This team is geared towards fighting and benefit from very skilled Blitzer players and dirt cheap lineman boasting respectable characteristics and the Fend skill. Blitzers are their key players, and any action undertaken by Bretonnian teams will revolve around them. While Blitzers are indisputably fantastic Blood Bowl players, they are also very expensive. However, they are necessary for any action carried out by their team, with other players mostly there to provide them with support. Strong, yet still rather fragile compared to more bashy teams, Bretonnian teams also lack agility, impeding their passing and running game.

Matching their skillset, their hiring fee is also exceptionally high, and they will only ever join your team for a single match. However, if you can spare the Gold to afford hiring one (or even two!) of them, they will be worth the hiring cost, as they might very well turn the tide of the match, all by themselves.

Blood Bowl 2 is currently available for preorder on Steam with an added bonus of either the Wood Elves or Lizardmen races. Players who preorder will also receive immediate access to the Multiplayer Beta of the game which is currently running. Blood Bowl 2 will be released on September 22nd on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
