News Snatch: Blood Bowl 2, Evolve, Gangbeasts & Amplitude

Well hello there, long time no see and all that, time for another round up of bits of news from the behind the TSA fridge conveniently pummelled in to bit sized portions of lovelyness, starting with news that Blood Bowl 2 is coming to consoles, namely the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and will be released in Spring 2015.

Humans, Orcs, Dwarfs, Elves, Skaven, Beastmen and cheerleaders give all they’ve got! Watch the various iconic teams from the Blood Bowl world throwing both punches and the ball in an effort to score touchdowns – or simply to cripple and maim the opposing teams. The epitome of Blood Bowl: American Football, mixed with the fantasy world of Warhammer, resulting in a very deep and tactical turn based game where crushing your opponent under your boots is just as important as getting hold of the ball to score a touchdown.

Those sneaks at Bungie have added the Sword of Crota to Destiny public events. The event is called Blades of Crota, and its available on Earth in numerous locations. A knight will appear with sword, destroy him and you can gain access to the blade and lay waste to the Hive scum.

Disney Infinity 2.0 is coming to PS Vita and will launch with an exclusive Black Spiderman figure. Coo!

Future Deus Ex games will run the new Dawn Engine which is “based on a heavily modified version of IO Interactive’s Glacier 2 engine”, check out the screen above.

Portugal, Poland, Spain, Italy and Germany are the lucky countries who will have to endure even more annoying children warbling “Let it go” as Singstar Frozen will be released just in time for Christmas.

The Evolve team have introduced a new game mode, Evacuation, which will be playable exclusively in the Xbox One open beta in January.

There is an indie advent calender with free PC stuff right up until Christmas day, check it out here.

A trailer for Gang Beasts from the recent PlayStation Experience.

The Norse mythology-themed RPG Runemaster from Paradox which was scheduled for PC and PS4 has been put on hold.

After much internal debate we have made the decision to freeze development of the project until further notice and move the development team working on it to other projects within Paradox Development Studio.

This was not an easy decision to make – Runemaster was a very ambitious project for us, and the team working on it brought all of their passion, dedication, and talent to the table. Despite our best efforts and a couple of re-scopes, Runemaster in its current form was unable to live up to the standards we set for ourselves here at Paradox.

And Finally, this..


  1. Hoping Blood Bowl 2 is a lot better than the first. Would prefer a much more action orientated game.

    Desperately need Gang Beasts on the PS4. Such a shame we have to wait.

  2. Gang Beasts look hilarious! It’s even by Double Fine! Must have it.

  3. Also, for those that care. I noticed that the Borderlands the pre sequel trophy list is showing trophies for the first dlc. It’s already been confirmed that a level cap increase will be part of the season pass, and with this being called ultimate vault hunter mode it’s obviously that level cap increase and the 3rd play through, but the trophies suggest another battle arena too.I guess the extra content, albeit small is to make the whole dlc seem worth being part of the season pass.
    I’ve got to say, compared too borderlands 2, this pass is rubbish. The first two out of the way and all we have to look forward too is another character we already knew about before the game even released and “one new level” which I can only assume is a new story for the vault hunters to go on. And I expect a bloody good one. The grinder has essentially killed the endgame in borderlands, and this incredibly weak season pass (BL2 had 4 new levels, this has 1) makes me feel like 2k Australia has really dropped the ball on this one.
