Blood Bowl II gameplay trailer hits the field. Hard.

Heads up, meatbags! We finally have a gameplay video for Cyanide Studio's Blood bowl 2, which is coming to PC, PS4 and Xbox One soon. The video shows an Orc team defending their lines against the human-led, Reikland Raiders. We say humans, but they seem to have recruited an Ogre too!

Blood Bowl 2 is a much more tactical sports game, with a turn-based style that oddly suits the NFL-inspired sport, which is very stop/start in nature too. So expect to see some on-screen dice rolling to determine outcomes of plays. On the plus side, you'll get the option to re-roll sometimes when your fat-handed orc fumbles it.

With NFL becoming more and more popular outside of the USA, we're looking forwards to this one, especially seeing as it swaps out the mind-boggling data pile of stats and try-hard tattoos for spikes, vicious violence and all our favourite Games Workshop Warhammer races like orcs, dark elves, dwarves, chaos, skaven and more. Blood Bowl II is the first time the series has come to consoles in a long-time too, which should widen up the player-base more than ever.

We've got our fingers crossed for this one.

Want to know more? Well, we have a Blood Bowl II preview and an interview for you. There's also a tonne of information on the game's official website.

Interesting. I really enjoyed both the board game and the original computer game. It looks like this sequel retains most of the core gameplay, but the presentation is significantly better. No idea how the overall package will be in terms of game modes and things to keep you coming back, but that trailer certainly gives cause for optimism. It's a small detail, but the time limit on deciding whether or not to re roll the fumble is clearly something that's been implemented to keep multiplayer moving, which gives me hope that the multiplayer could be well worth playing.

Sod it, I'm actively looking forward to this now.
