Focus Home Interactive and Cyanide Studios have released new screenshots for their upcoming title, Blood Bowl 2.
The new screenshots released show the stunning stadiums as well as the human and orc teams in action from the latest take on the Games Workshop tabletop fantasy sport boardgame. Platforms for Blood Bowl II have still yet to be confirmed, but you can see the game in action at GDC, San Francisco in a couple of weeks. Blood Bowl 2, published by Focus Home Interactive, is the sequel to Blood Bowl, the video game developed by Cyanide studios based on the famous board game created by Games Workshop that combines American football with the fantastic universe of Warhammer. The magnificent stadiums in Blood Bowl 2 are scalable and can be developed to become increasingly imposing as the player spends the winnings earned in the solo and multiplayer campaigns to upgrade them and add new infrastructures. Players can build their stadiums up from modest training grounds to truly grandiose edifices that rival the most prestigious structures in the real world. They also play an active part in recreating the supercharged atmosphere of a Blood Bowl match, where volatile fans pack the stands ready to cheer on their favourite team or invade the pitch and trample on the players!
But the improvements and extensions designed by the players are not for aesthetic purposes alone, as they will also have a direct impact on the game experience. Blood Bowl 2 also brings a bunch of new features to Solo and Multiplayer modes making it more accessible for first-time players and more enjoyable for seasoned veterans. A stunning and ambitious Solo campaign puts players at the head of one of Blood Bowl’s most famous teams and challenges them to climb to the top through a series of original and truly unique matches. League mode lets players manage their own team, club, and even stadium. We’ll soon be showing off some of these substantial and striking innovations that make Multiplayer mode even more thrilling. Blood Bowl 2 is scheduled for release in Q4 2014.
