BLOOD BOWL IS BACK, AND IT'S GOING TO HURT!

Postby Freki » 10 October 2013, 15:38

Blood Bowl 2, the sequel to the video game adaptation of Games Workshop's famous board game that combines American football with a fantasy universe inspired by Warhammer, today unveiled its very first official screenshots!

The first playable team, fully modelled and animated, has just made an appearance on the pitch of the Blood Bowl 2 stadium. As you can see, the human players have the honour of entering the pitch first and will also be the stars of the massive solo campaign in Blood Bowl 2 as you lead the legendary Reikland Reavers and experience an epic saga packed with risk, dangers and spectacular matches on the way to winning the Blood Bowl.

These two screenshots show the human, Blitzer, one of the most versatile players on the human teams, in action and ready to face whatever the opposing team can throw at him!

Developed by Cyanide Studios, Blood Bowl 2 is even more ambitious than its predecessor, with a fabulous look and a variety of extra features. Its brand new graphics engine has been specifically developed for this sequel, enabling the game to display high-quality visuals, graphic and sound effects, taking the Blood Bowl licence to the next level. The animations, dynamic cameras that pack more punch to matches, the "Cabalvision" design of the interface and corrosive commentators Jim Johnson and Bob Bifford (who made a noteworthy appearance in the game's first video teaser) faithfully recreate the thrills and fury characteristic of Blood Bowl's intense matches.

Blood Bowl 2 also has a host of new features in both Solo and Multiplayer modes that make it more accessible for first-time players and more enjoyable for seasoned veterans. The stunning and ambitious Solo campaign puts players at the head of one of the most famous teams in Blood Bowl's universe, who will compete in some original and truly unique matches to take their team to the top. League mode allows players to manage their own team, club and even stadium, as all these features are fully modular! We will soon reveal some substantial and striking innovations that make Multiplayer mode even more thrilling!

Over the coming weeks and months we look forward to releasing more screenshots, new information about features, solo and multiplayer modes and, of course, the first Blood Bowl 2 game videos!

Well.... It sounds good, but you could take all your graphic changes, new features and what else you have developed for BB2 and throw them away, IF you haven't fixed all the bugs....
Without bug fixes, this game is like a concept car with no engine... Looks great, but it can't drive...

Until I see proof that the bugs is fixed, you won't get a nickle from me..

Two questions spring to mind:
1. Does that Blitzer have the Kick skill?
2. Is it optional? :twisted:

(3. Why give a Blitzer the Kick skill?)

Don't ask :lol:.
I guess it's just a screenshot taken from a Kick Off scene.

Hard to believe it took some 4 months to get approval for 2 screenies, that look...well...massaged.

Anyone who has seen the RTW2 debacle and their use, or misuse, of misleading screenshots may as well start praying. :D

Freki,

Can you please clarify if those screenshots are actually from the in game graphics engine or if the are just taken from a cinematic scene?

Any chance we can get screenshots of how the pitch and players look from the normal playing view (and not just a close up as these pics seem to be)?

thanks
My general availability to start games is 20:00 - 21:30 GMT+1 during the week with some more flexibility on weekends.
