What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We always considered Early Access a key phase of the development of Blood Bowl: Death Zone. We know that the only way to reach the level of quality we aim for the match experience and the online competition, is to put the game into the hands of players, as soon as possible. Multiplayer games need to progress and evolve through testing and iteration. We need your feedback to make Blood Bowl: Death Zone the great game we want it to be!””

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game is already in an advanced stage of development, all the key systems are here, now we have to produce and balance the actual content. A rough estimate would be 4 to 8 months, 4 being the strict minimum we need to add what we already have in mind, but we will probably need extra time to take all your feedback into account.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“A lot of content will be added during the Early Access, including some features that we haven’t thought about yet but that will come up through your feedback. As of now, the most important changes planned are:
- a lot more teams with at least 8 Star Players for the full version
- many new skills for the players, at least 20 skills in the final version
- a leveling up system for the players
- a single player mode
- a competitive multiplayer league”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version is our Alpha version. The core gameplay is done and matches are playable as we intended and mostly bug free. The content available is limited to only 4 teams from 2 different races (Humans and Orcs).”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We plan to progressively increase the price of the game during the Early Access to reflect the amount of content that we add with each new update. This is also a way to thank the gamers who purchase the game at the earliest stages.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We will discuss with the Community on the Steam forums, our community manager will gather and forward all the feedback to the development team. A big button in the game main screen will redirect users to the right forum to post their feedback, comments and bug reports.”

About This Game

Discover the Death Zone challenge, the most popular pre-game show in the history of Blood Bowl! Sponsored by ever popular brands such as Orcidas, Mc Murtys and Spike Magazine, the Death Zone challenge sees two Star Players of Blood Bowl fame leading teams of amateurs onto the pitch for some bone crushing five-a-side football!

Blood Bowl: Death Zone is a competitive 1 vs. 1 game of football, violence and mayhem. You have full command of your players, move them around the pitch, activate their skills and special moves, and trigger passes and dashes in order to evade the opponents and to score TOUCHDOWNS. Each match lasts only 5 minutes and will put your skills and nerves to the test. You’re in total control… can you lead your players to the victory?

Enter one of the multiple online leagues available and develop your team in a season long competition against other coaches from all over the world. Guide the progress of your players as they receive XP, improve their stats and unlock new skills match after match. Be careful, death looms over the pitch and your superstar could end up with a broken neck before the end of the season… but hey, that’s what Blood Bowl is all about: scoring touchdowns, punching opponents in the face and dealing with deadly injuries.

Blood Bowl: Death Zone is currently in Early Access. Ultimately it will contain:

  • 20 teams based on the most popular races from the Blood Bowl universe (8 in current version)
  • 15+ Star Players, each with their unique style, strengths and weaknesses (8 in current version)
  • 20+ unique abilities for your players (12 in current version)
  • 5 arenas (1 in current version)
  • Multiplayer league and simple matches (only simple matches in current version)
