Cyanide and Nacon have confirmed a new instalment in the Blood Bowl franchise with the reveal of Blood Bowl 3. It is expected to launch in early 2021 with 12 playable races that come with their own cheerleaders and arenas. The game will feature both a campaign mode and multiplayer modes, though those are to be detailed. The playable races will include elves, humans, and orcs, and two of the new teams are Black Orcs and Imperial Nobility. Like the previous games this will be a turn based strategy title. You can watch the reveal trailer below.
As you give out instructions the team will attempt to get into the touchdown zone, and stop the opponents from doing the same. Injuries wil be a common feature and some players may be lost forever due to being fatally attacked on the field. Blood Bowl 3 will adopt the new edition rules to match the new board game edition coming out this year. Blood Bowl 2 released back in 2015, and in our review for that Dave wrote:
It’s difficult to overlook a lot of the flaws with Blood Bowl 2, but at the same time if you have a group of likeminded people willing to create a league, then this is a great if somewhat limited option. It’s everything you’d expect in a Blood Bowl game, with a great tutorial for newcomers and a coat of paint, looking as good as the Citadel Minatures you’d see in the window of a Games Workshop. While the core game has been sadly out of print at the store for some time, this is the most accessible way of getting your Blood Bowl fix.
