NACON and Cyanide Studio have shared a new trailer for Blood Bowl 3 promoting Joseph Bugman’s refreshing and refined beer, Bugman’s XXXXXX.
Distributed all across the Old World, each sip is a “pure delight” meaning that at the mere sight of a tankard even a clumsy dwarf can take out an entire opposing team and sprint 25 yards just to get a taste.
This turn-based strategy game is based on the Games Workshop board game and takes inspiration from American football. But, it is set in the Warhammer fantasy world in which elves, humans, orcs and other creatures use shoulder charges, kicks, punches and weapons in an effort to fight for the ball.
You are their coach and must give them instructions, whether that be to hinder your opponent’s progression in your tackle zone, knocking down opposing players or breaking through your competition’s end zone to score a touchdown.
The faithful adaptation will use the new edition rules, teams (including the new Black Orcs and Imperial Nobility), units and associated skills, in an experience that is promised to be “funnier, bloodier and more spectacular than ever.”
There will 12 races that each comes with their own arena and team of cheerleaders, a campaign mode, multiplayer modes and customisation options, with “regular content updates” to be made available after launch.
Blood Bowl 3 will release at retail and on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in August 2021.
