Find out what’s coming for Blood Bowl 3 from Cyanide Studio

It’s the start of a new era for Blood Bowl 3! For the first time, this new adaptation, which introduces the latest rules and features from the legendary board game, gives Blood Bowl players a season update, a format that encourages competition. There will also be new content in the form of a battle pass, called the Blood Pass, as explained in a video by Gautier Brésard and Clément Nicolin, the Blood Bowl 3 Project Manager and Product Manager respectively.

After several years of development and numerous Beta phases used to integrate community feedback, the release of Blood Bowl 3 is the next step for a game structured to last. In addition to optimizing the gameplay and the global quality, Cyanide Studio will regularly integrate new content and features.

The initial launch version of Blood Bowl 3 will include 12 factions, which is 4 more than featured in Blood Bowl 2. Every 3 months, a new season will begin, with each season adding a new faction and a new Blood Pass. The Blood Pass has 50 tiers that players achieve over the course of the season’s matches. On successfully reaching certain tiers, players receive free rewards that they can use to customize their teams, including new accessories, balls, and dice. The top tier in the Blood Pass unlocks that season’s new faction.

There will also be a paid version of the Blood Pass. If players buy it, they can immediately play as the new faction and will unlock a reward at each of the 50 tiers completed.

More than any other Blood Bowl game before, Blood Bowl 3 focuses heavily on customization options and competition. While the Blood Pass lets players obtain certain items, the same items can also be obtained as in-game rewards or be purchased in the online store using Warpstone, the game’s virtual currency. Whether unlocked for free or purchased from the store, the items are purely cosmetic. 

As far as competition is concerned, each player will be given a ranking when playing in competitive mode. In ranked matches, players go up against other players of the same level, progressively being challenged by coaches with more experience. The tournaments and league system are sure to be crowd-pleasers.

The Blood Bowl 3 Blood Pass is a new way to enjoy all the different content that Cyanide will be providing after the game is released. This content, plus launch versions that are cheaper than previous incarnations, regular season updates, means Blood Bowl 3 has everything it needs to appeal to both long-term fans and players of tactical games who are looking to give fantasy football a try.

Blood Bowl 3 is coming in February 2023

Fans of sport, fantasy, and turn-based tactics: do a stadium wave for Blood Bowl 3! The madcap turn-based strategy game set in the Warhammer universe will be available on February 23, 2023, for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.

In the fantasy world of Warhammer, diplomacy is usually left on the sidelines in exchange for a more brutal approach to solving conflicts. And Blood Bowl is no different, but it takes place in a stadium, with a ball, and the number of casualties is usually lower. Under the patronage of the god Nuffle, two teams go head-to-head on a pitch similar to an American football field and try to score more touchdowns than their opponent.

In Blood Bowl 3, you take on the role of coach and build a team from one of the Blood Bowl factions, which includes humans, orcs, dwarfs, elves, and other creatures from the Warhammer world. You manage and upgrade your team off the field, then control your players in turn-based matches by giving orders to each player: grab the ball, mark an opposing player, and of course, dish out some punches, whacks and thumps… in other words, knock down opponents so you can score some touchdowns.

Based on the latest edition of the legendary board game, Blood Bowl 3 is a fantastic virtual experience that beautifully complements the physical game. This edition adds a variety of new features, including dedicated passing statistics, a range of playing fields with their own gameplay rules, coaches, multiple cheerleaders, and exciting Star Players.

And, of course, everyone’s favorite dynamic duo Jim and Bob are back giving their signature play-by-play commentary for every action on the field, whether it’s a tactical move or a brutal tackle.

At launch, the game will feature 12 factions, including 4 playable for the first time in a Blood Bowl video game. Each faction has its own unique characteristics and related content. There are also single-player and multiplayer modes as well as more customization options than ever before. Follow us on our social media channels to ensure you don’t miss any news!
