We welcome the Halflings! Too small to develop a game based on passes, too slow to outrun opponents and too weak for all-out assaults, Halflings are truly a unique race in the Blood Bowl world. However, on rare occasions a Halfling team miraculously wins a game. When it happens, this has more to do with luck and culinary talent than technical skills, which are practically nonexistent among Halfling teams!
They do however get to have Tree-Men on their teams which are obviously a great asset, making up for what the Halflings lack in skills. They can even throw their small teammates towards the end zone… assuming they don’t take root beforehand!
A brutal team sport unfolding in a fantasy world based on Warhammer and American football, Blood Bowl is an incredible, brutal game in which no holds are barred as you lead your team to the Blood Bowl final! Blood Bowl: Legendary Edition is the ultimate Blood Bowl edition! 11 new playable races join the 9 races already available in the 2009 edition: Undead, Amazon, Ogres and 9 other races enter Blood Bowl's tournaments. All 20 races have their personal style, tactics and unique skills which give each game a diversity rarely seen in a strategy game. New and more impressive stadiums welcome all these new teams: from the snowy Norse stadium to the creepy interior of a crypt, a change of scenery is guaranteed!
A new Story mode is also introduced, in which players will play as a freelance coach. They will have to lead several famous teams and take up many challenges through a story revealing the origins of Blood Bowl, the Old World and its many races that relentlessly compete with each other in merciless games. A newly scripted tutorial will teach all new comers everything they need to know about coaching a Blood Bowl team! In order to stay as close as possible to the official rules, many additions and updates have been made to better match the latest Blood Bowl Rulebook, used in all official board game official tournaments.
Blood Bowl: Legendary Edition is planned for release on PC Q4 2010.
