BLOOD BOWL ENTERS THE PITCH... ON IPAD AND ANDROID TABLETS!

Postby Netheos » 02 July 2014, 10:14

Blood Bowl is arriving early July on iPad and Android tablets!
This handheld version will let you bring the fierce matches of Blood Bowl with you, wherever you travel!

Assemble your team from among six fantastic races in the Warhammer universe (Humans, Orcs, Dwarfs, Skaven, Wood Elves and Chaos). Each race has its own strengths, weaknesses and numerous opportunities to develop which will lend an immense tactical depth to the game.

Immerse yourself in single matches in Solo Player mode to enjoy fun, fast games, or set off to conquer the Blood Bowl in the extensive Campaign mode. Develop your team and players by gaining victories and experience as you progress in the game.

In Multiplayer you can compete against a friend on your tablet in "Hotseat" mode, or launch yourself into the vast online world in a massive permanent league where you can create and develop your teams. Play against Blood Bowl players from all over the world on iPad, Android tablet or even PC!

Blimey.

It looks a lot like BB1 - which is fine. Does it use the old skill logic (and therefore inherit some of the bugs from BB1) or the new BB2 skill logic?

Well that kinda depends on the answer to my question dontcha think?

Another big question of course is does this synch with BB1 or BB2 servers?

*The base game enables you to play Humans and Orcs: the other races are available from the in-game store.

Think this is quite important to mention to.

If the base game is free and they don't charge too much for dlc teams, then this could be great. Hopefully it doesn't come full of all the same bugs we've gotten used to in BB1 (and some new ones too)...

Also it would be great if the devs actually listen to the community feedback this time and do some comprehensive beta testing before releasing it too.

Will be interesting to see what the UI is like.

One can dream eh? :lol:

@Waldorf : To be more precise, as the tablet version will allow cross play with other platforms, the skill logic is the same as in Blood Bowl Chaos Edition. And so it synch with BB1 servers.

Thanks for the answer Jolly! That is still good news I think.

I have a lot of Admins at the UKBBL asking whether they will be able to validate PC matches (ie. use the "Manage League" tab) using the tablet version. Will that be possible?
