Blood Bowl 3 gets a new trailer with everything you need to know

The game development studio Cyanide and French publisher NACON have released a brand-new trailer for Blood Bowl 3, available on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S on February 23, 2023.

Blood Bowl is a brutal fantasy football inspired competition populated by Elves, Humans, Orcs, and other fantasy creatures. But do you know the specific features of Blood Bowl 3? What you need is a little update for the new game a few weeks before launch. It’s lining up to be a smash hit!

There will be 12 factions available for the launch of Blood Bowl 3. The most iconic factions are returning, such as the Dwarfs and Dark Elves. But they will be joined by brand-new factions, such as the Imperial Nobility, Old World Alliance, Chaos Renegades, and the Black Orcs, not to mention new factions that will be added at a later date!

The dynamic pitches also hold their share of surprises: in certain situations, these pitches transform during the match and change the rules. Kraken, unbearable heat and insect swarms, these events are sure to create memorable moments!

Among the new features, Blood Bowl 3 includes a major redesign of the passing system to provide better team balance. Passing the ball is no longer linked to the Agility characteristic, but rather to a new characteristic: Passing Ability. You will also have the chance to learn new skills that will come in useful for devising your strategies.

The levelling up system has also been completely revamped to provide more flexibility and more balanced levelling within a team.

And many more features are there to explore! Player and team customization, a season system, and official ranking: all the new features will allow every coach to stand out and enjoy a unique Blood Bowl experience. You can therefore flaunt your own distinctive style in the Old World during the single-player Clash of Sponsors campaign and against other players.

Blood Bowl 3 will be available in several editions:

  • Standard (digital): 29,99€ PC / 39,99€ Consoles
  • Deluxe – Black Orcs / Deluxe – Imperial Nobility (digital): 39,99€ PC / 49,99€ Consoles
  • Brutal Edition (retail and digital): 49,99€ PC / 59,99€ Consoles

The Deluxe and Brutal editions give access to some exclusive customization content. Check the details on your favorite digital store. Get exclusive content as a bonus!

The Night Lords’ Konrad Curze represented the WWE Royal Rumble

This weekend, the 36th annual Royal Rumble was held by the WWE. One of the major draws for it is a match where numerous wrestlers enter the ring in random order and the last one to remain in the ring wins. Warhammer 40K fan Shayna Baszler entered fifth in this year’s match and sported gear inspired by the game’s Night Lords forces.

Baszler entered fifth and was eliminated sixth by the combined force of Bayley, Dakota Kai, and Iyo Sky lasting 13 minutes and 28 seconds.

So what do you think of Baszler’s gear? Does it do the Night Haunter justice?
