Next 'Blood Bowl III' PC Beta Phase Start June 1st, Will Feature Two New Factions - Trailer

Blood Bowl III is a turn-based strategy game inspired by American football set in the Warhammer fantasy world.

Strap on your boots, don your helmet, adjust your shoulder guards and chest plate… and slip a sharpened dagger into your belt (it's the rules).

 The iconic death sport returns with the new video game of fantasy football faithfully using the latest board game rules and new content. Create your team, then crush, mulch and cheat your way to the top... leaving your opponents in the graveyard.

Blood Bowl III is a videogame of fantasy football where elves, humans, orcs and other creatures fight for the ball with shoulder charges, kicks, punches and weapons of varying degrees of lethality (and legality by the ref). As the coach, you must give instructions to your players: hinder the progress of your opponents by positioning them in your tackle zone, knock down those who get in your way, and break through to your opponents' end zone to score a touchdown!

All your units can gain experience and receive statistic bonuses or new skills. However, be careful: injuries are common, especially when the referee is a goblin who tends to overlook most forms of violence. Some players may even leave the field limp and lifeless, putting an early and definitive end to their careers.

NACON and Cyanide Studio announced a new beta phase for Blood Bowl 3, to be held from 1 to 12 June 2022 on PC (Steam).

Following the June 2021 and January 2022 betas, this new phase will shed light on many new features!

Those who already have a code from a previous beta will have direct access as soon as the new beta opens. New arrivals can sign up here to receive a key.

There will be six playable factions in this beta: the Black Orcs, the Imperial Nobility, the Elven Union, the Dwarfs and two new factions, which will be appearing for the first time in a Blood Bowl® video game. The new beta phase also marks the arrival of new pitches, each with special rules that will spice up the matches. Find out more about the new factions and pitches on 1 June at the Warhammer Skulls showcase.

Blood Bowl III is a faithful adaptation of the Games Workshop board game, which is to receive a new edition this year. The game will use the new edition rules, teams (including the new Black Orcs and Imperial Nobility), units and associated skills. The best strategists will obviously be at an advantage, but will that be enough? All it takes is one unfortunate roll of the dice to change the course of a match.

Funnier, bloodier and more spectacular than ever, Blood Bowl III will be a hit with fans of the universe and competitive players alike. At launch, the game will include 12 races, each with their own arena and team of cheerleaders, campaign and multiplayer modes, and loads of customization options. Regular content updates will be added after launch.

Brutal, crazy, tactical… this is BLOOD BOWL!

Blood Bowl III will be available for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC (Steam) and Nintendo Switch in 2022.
