The Legendary Edition of Blood Bowl 2 has been announced at Le What's Next de Focus, our press event last week. We're pleased to finally unveil all the info about this new edition!
2017 – we’re aiming at this summer but depending on how the tests go, it may be delayed. We have some complicated features on the list (rez mode for example) and we want to implement them correctly. We'd prefer a slight delay than a messy launch.
PC/Mac, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
- For new players: a bundle with ALL the content of Blood Bowl 2 at approximately €45. Contains BB2 base game + All teams released since Launch + All Legendary Edition content.
- For existing owners of BB2: get the Legendary Edition content (all the content listed below) for the price of a big DLC. We aim at approximately €20.
A pack with all teams released between Launch and Legendary Edition (Wood Elf/Lizardmen/Nurgle/Norse/Necromantic/Undead/Chaos Dwarfs/Khemri) will also be available for around 20€ before the release of Legendary.
You'll still be able to purchase individual races if you wish.
The Chaos Dwarfs and Khemri teams, releasing February 14th, aren't part of the Legendary Edition.
Full compatibility between the 2 versions. Most small features and quality of life changes will be available to all BB2 players, even those who didn't purchase the Legendary Edition.
