The Undead DLC is coming!



Meet the upcoming Undead team and their deadly Players, all included in the Undead DLC available late July for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC/Mac.

You can still benefit from the FOUNDERS INCENTIVE: Players will receive the Undead, as well as the Necromantic and the Nurgle teams for free, as long as they purchased the game before the races release.

Also, Blood Bowl 2 is currently 60% off on Steam until July 4th. This is a perfect opportunity to get the game at an attractive price, and receive the coming races for free as soon as they are available.



Last but not least, all the PC/Mac owners of Blood Bowl 2 will have access to a Beta next week featuring the upcoming Undead and several updates and improvements.

The Undead Team



Death comes often for Blood Bowl players, and the souls of the most passionate sometimes rise up again to relive the scenes of their former glory. The Undead team, raised by the Liche-lords of the Old World, have the unique skill “Regenerate” which makes them incredibly difficult to kill. They have incredibly agile pieces, the Ghouls and the Wights, but they are often too fast for their shambling, but fearsome, Mummy players to keep up.



Finally, two Star Players are joining the Undead: Ramtut III is a mighty and powerful mummy who has spent countless years on the pitch. Morg n’ Thorg, someone who has faced Ramtut on the pitch and lived, happens to be his sworn nemesis. Count Luthor Von Drakenborg the vampire carries impressive stats and the Hypnotic Gaze ability, and is one of our most fearsome Star Players yet!

Soon to come, the Necromantic and the Nurgle! Stay tuned, sports fans!

So, I can't reccomend this game for several reasons. Although Blood Bowl is a really fun blend of strategy and RNG, the implementation of this is poor. Single player is OK - the campaign is just an extended tutorial, and not actually challenging. Although the commentators are mildly entertaining and most games the AI has some gimmick to keep you interested, its clear the game is geared towards multiplayer.

Unfortunately, multiplayer is pretty poor. Matchmaking times are long, and the longer you're in queue, the less the game cares about an even matchup. Using petty cash to even out the odds is inadequate to really level the playing field and allow a fair competitve match. Furthermore the game doesn't use MMR - matchmaking is determined by you're teams gold value, not winrate. So player skill isn't taken into account and experienced players with low TV teams destroy any newer players. Also since there's no real incentive to win, and no penalty for conceding, the leagues are infested with Chaos teams whose sole aim is to kill and injure your players. If you try to injure their players back in return, they'll just concede. Also, the main league - NAF - has ageing on for some reason, which is a stupid rule. All your prized players you spend ages levelling up will eventually retire.

Other complaints include a shoddy UI, a distinct lack of teams compared to the previoud Blood Bowl, and the devs being very slow to update the game or add new content. For the full price its definitely not worth it. If you're a hardcore Blood Bowl fan and don't mind playing against Chaos every match then maybe pick it up on sale.

OK, so the premise for BB2 is pretty simple. You have a great, tested and proven game system to translate into a decent UX/UI experience and add some 3D fluff to. And while BB2 looks nice, the interface is clumsy, the gameplay a bit unelegant and there's little bugs everywhere that ruin the experience;

- Why does the AI keep taking down random players rather than defending?
- Why does the game sometimes fail to recognise a player standing in the end zone for a TD?
- Why is it so frustrating trying to work out how to buy team assets the first time one plays?

It's a pretty bad rendition of BB guys, sry. Not recommended.

Blood Bowl doesn't get as much love as it deserves. While it isn't a 1 to 1 conversion of the board game, it is the hands down best turn-based tactical murderous football experience you can digitally play so far.

I can't help the feeling that most of the downvotes of Blood Bowl are made by die hard tabletop fans or people who can't deal with RNG and the complexity of the rules and skills.

While I can understand that neither casual mainstream gamers nor die hard Blood Bowl tabletop fans will love Blood Bowl 2, I still believe it is one of the best competitive turn-based games currently out there and do recommend it greatly.

The game is really fun to play.The single player is a little bit short but full of humor also it would have been a good addition to have single player with the other races aside from humans as well.The multiplayer is fun if you play with friends as you can talk smack to each other and concentrate more on killing your players than scoring :)

As of the time I write this review this game I have the same problem others have, despite following Cyanide's FAQ suggestions and having a more than capable computer, where this game refuses to utilize my GPU, making it a stuttering unplayable mess. In addition, why I should have to edit a text file to access more comprehenise graphic tweaks, and calling them "comprehensive" is being extremely generous, is beyond me and unacceptable. It seems strange and sad to say, but I'm left wondering if the developer only decided to publish this game on the computer as an afterthought. I want to like this game, this game can be liked, but it needs a working basic functionality before that can even be considered.

CAREFUL : This is not a Sport or an Action Game, This is a pure Turn-based Strategy Game. It needs a lot of planning and thinking at every minute. And the RNG must be part of the strategy, which means you must try to throw the dice as little and as late as possible each turn.
You can expect long and slow matches, but they are GREAT if you like this type of game and the Blood Bowl Universe.

Another attempt. I'm not sure why those involved in converting GW titles believe they need to recreate a new experience, when folks already enjoy an existing one. Unless you believe digital gamers today are that different from their traditional gamer counterparts? No.

Guy and gals - the game's been designed and tested. All we want from you is some lovely visualisation (which this title does give) and for you to use our computers to aid our play. Team managment. Customizing models/painting. Organise leagues. Customise leagues. Learn to make the computer support and expand on the existing play experience. Make it work for us.

A virtual table-top for GW fun.

Instead we get poorly implemented league management tool. Feeble customisation options. No tools to aid play, such as a grid. And a terrible camera.

Oh and some rule/skill changes. Because the years of itterative testing and feeback are obviously not as valued as the opinions of Cyanide's so-called game designers. Good call guys/gals.

I swear to the RNGods - whenever/whoever makes a Necromunda game, if they follow the logic of Cyanide and those chumps that did Mordheim, we'll have a narrative-driven multiplayer FPS shooter....

There's nothing better than a game that gives you RNG that really slaps you in the face. When it's choosing which crappy die result after attempting a tackle, or screaming at your dumbass Troll who refuses to move a single space (or ate your Goblin for that matter). After every failed roll, loss, injured player, or failure to pick up a ball that is right in front of them; my verdict on this game still remains positive and I will break it down why.

Gameplay: Blood Bowl is a turn based dice rolling game of football where every player on your team makes a difference in terms of positioning and stats. My favorite part about this is that you can create your own team and have them compete in tournaments and leagues. Death is permanent for your players however so be prepared for when high level Mr. Badass gets murdered by a little innocent Skink. As you progress, you can upgrade your stadium and team staff with more cheerleaders and coach assistants so you can make the best team of all the Elves, Orcs, Rats, or Humies.

Atmosphere: given that this is a Warhammer fantasy game, you see a lot of familiar races such as the Skaven, Black Orcs and Chaos but set in a stadium for some good wholesome sport where anything goes to achieve victory. The two announcers are quite the treat themselves with their commentary on about anything that goes on in the game.

Graphics: very well designed and detailed with every separate character in the game. not much to say but nothing to really complain about.

Overall, Blood Bowl 2 makes for a great game for you to get angry at because RNG dictates that you cannot make the perfect play. So get your team together, warm up those blocking dice and pray to Nuffle that you will succeed.

Awesome turn-based sports+strategy warhammer-based game.
If it's not enough - I don't know what to say more.
In second edition graphics are improved - players look awesome, effects look cool/
UI is more novice-friendly - it explains the possiblity of success or fail of your actions
There is also very particular study mode that explains almost everything that you should know to start (the reason I can't play BB1 because wtf is happening).
If you like TBS - strongly recommend to own!
