Bloodbowl 3

Games Workshop have announced that Nacon and Cyanide Studio will be including beta keys for Bloodbowl 3 in pre-order boxes of Bloodbowl: Second Season Edition.

Bloodbowl: Second Season Edition is the upcoming two-player starter box for the next edition of the Bloodbowl tabletop game. The boxed set is available for pre-order now, and will release on November 28th.

The set includes everything two players need to get into the fantasy football miniatures game; including the Imperial Nobility and Black Orc teams, a hardback copy of the rulebook, a double-sided pitch, two double-sided card dugouts, plastic templates, tokens, cards, quick reference guides, and two sets of themed dice.

Pre-orders will also include a winter-themed doubled-sided pitch, and the aforementioned beta code for Bloodbowl 3. These extras will only be available while supplies last.

Bloodbowl 3 is the latest digital adaptation of the tabletop game, and was designed alongside the new edition. The game launches early 2021 for Windows PC via Steam, and the closed beta will run sometime in 2021 ahead of the full release.

You can find the rundown (via Steam) below:

Strap on your boots, don your helmet, adjust your shoulder guards and chest plate… and slip a sharpened dagger into your belt (it’s the rules).
Blood Bowl 3 is the videogame of fantasy football. A turn-based strategy game inspired by American football in the Warhammer fantasy world where elves, humans, orcs and other creatures fight for the ball with shoulder charges, kicks, punches and weapons of varying degrees of lethality (and legality by the ref).

Your team, your call!
As the coach, you must give instructions to your players: hinder the progress of your opponents by positioning them in your tackle zone, knock down those who get in your way, and break through to your opponents’ end zone to score a touchdown!
All your units can gain experience and receive statistic bonuses or new skills. However, be careful: injuries are common, especially when the referee is a goblin who tends to overlook most forms of violence. Some players may even leave the field limp and lifeless, putting an early and definitive end to their careers.
