Pre-orders now Open on Steam.

Blood Bowl 2, the sequel to the video game adaptation of Games Workshop's classic tabletop game combining American football with the Warhammer fantasy world, will expand in September with Blood Bowl 2: Legendary Edition. Screenshots of the new races and the new stadium coming with the Legendary Edition came with the news that pre-orders are available starting today.

Entering the fray are the sly Goblins and their entire arsenal of Secret Weapons, the Halflings and their Treemen always keen on throwing their teammates over the top for a desperate touchdown, and the Amazons with their fearless, versatile style of play. The Legendary Edition also brings the Vampire teams and their chilling, blood-lusting Lords, and the powerful, massive and occasionally unreliable Ogres, in addition to the athletic Elven Union and the creepy Underworld Denizens. To Nuffle’s delight, a brand new team has also formed after it was rumored that their Ice Queen became enamored of a Blood Bowl player: the Kislev Circus, with their great acrobatics abilities and their ferocious Tame Bears.

Anticipated by the community, the Legendary Edition will offer all the official races from the Blood Bowl board game, and also all the Star Players, a new Khemri stadium, more matches with the All-Star teams and the Mixed Teams, new game modes, as well as many new tools and options. More details to come in the coming weeks.

Blood Bowl 2: Legendary Edition will be available as a standalone game for newcomers and as an affordable expansion for all Blood Bowl 2 players this September. Pre-ordering the Legendary Edition or the Official Expansion on Steam will grant you a 10% discount and beta phase access. Pre-ordering the Legendary Edition will also instantly unlock Blood Bowl 2 base game + Team Pack races. Visit the official website for more info.

  • Raiders of the Broken Planet - Prologue Review

    Raiders of the Broken Planet just isn’t there yet. While an alpha build of the title showed promise, the title has much development ground to cover yet. Raiders of the Broken Planet isn’t half-baked: it barely got into the oven before players were encouraged to start eating the dough.

  • Lust For Darkness Preview

    Lust For Darkness, a first-person psychological thriller, combines a duo that few would have ever thought to merge, and even fewer would ever want to see: Cthulu-like horrors and limitless sexual bacchanalia. Developers at Lunar Cult Studios staged an immensely successful Kickstarter, amassing over 500% of their original goal for their game centered around “erotic and occult themes.” Taking clear inspirations from Amnesia: The Dark Descent and amateur pornography, the pre-release demo for Lust For Darkness is, beyond a shadow of a doubt, a video game.

    America, 1961. The assassination of Nazi General Deathshead was a short-lived victory. The Nazis maintain their stranglehold on the world. You are BJ Blazkowicz, aka “Terror-Billy,” member of the Resistance, scourge of the Nazi empire, and humanity’s last hope for liberty.

  • Absolver Review

    The moments I did have a good time were few and far inbetween, often overlooked and bogged down by repetitious fights and long periods of grinding out moves and experience. The glitches I experienced were numerous, but thankfully Sloclap is aware of most of these problems and is releasing patches to help eliminate them, while also adding new features. If you’re looking for crazy flashy combos and special moves, this isn’t the title for you. While Absolver is a fighting game, it’s a far cry from the likes of Street Fighter, Tekken, or Injustice. With many moves grounded in reality, or at least inspired by them, Absolver’s combat system still requires strategy, but even moreso patience — a quality for which many do not play fighting games.
