Anyone who played games during the 16-bit era probably remembers a classic EA Sports title called Mutant League Football. That game drew inspiration from real-life board game Blood Bowl, which depicts a very football-like sport played by human and fantasy races. Blood Bowl takes place in a cartoonish version of the Warhammer fantasy universe.
French developer Cyanide Studio’s first Blood Bowl video game won a sizable cult following a few years back. This September, Cyanide and Focus Home Interactive will follow-up with Blood Bowl II for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Windows. The new game promises a lengthy campaign, robust online multiplayer leagues, a spectator mode, and plenty of violent turn-based strategic gameplay.
