The Warhammer franchise is one that is highly respected here at Backwards Compatible (as you maybe aware from Chris, Phil and Jamie's chats on the podcast). So any news of a new game is always warmly welcome.
But when you throw in a bit of American football and gore then the appeal of this game jumps another level. The trailer is just the beginning to what we hope will be a new evolution in Sports games shenanigans.
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.
