Blood Bowl 2 Current News Roundup #BloodBowl2


News has been slowly trickling out about Blood Bowl 2 in recent months but with the release of the recent Farming Simulator 15 we've been assured that's going to change.

Before that happens, catch up on what we know about Blood Bowl 2 so far in a video that covers which races will be in at launch, the singleplayer campaign(s), a potential roster for the new Bretonnian team and a whole lot more.

Click on the headline to watch the video.

Nice video that covers it quickly and has good, appropriate visuals, but here's a synopsis for those at work who can't watch video:

* Story-line for single-player
* 8 teams at start
* UI Improvements are the big deal - should help new players get into it.
* New animations
* Player customization options aren't yet detailed.
* Looks prettier overall.
* Spectator-mode will remove down-time so that it can be streamed much more quickly than the game actually plays.
* They still think it won't be an e-sport due to the heavy RNG.
* Player marketplace allows players to buy and sell players from other players (that are the same race as your team) during the off-season.

Same here. I get that this is a tabletop game made into a videogame, so I want the table-toppers to still get to enjoy this as it is, but I'm not interested in playing it personally.

UttiniDaKilrJawa, I'm glad you liked the customisable stadiums, I've no idea what possessed me to do that, it just made me laugh xD

I like your video coverage. Please keep submitting news at EvAv if your coverage is all this good. Also, if you have time, a written synopsis for people who are at work and can't watch the video would be cool. . . kind of a trade-off for using EvAv as a referral site.

That seems reasonable, bean19, it really just hadn't occurred to me to do so but I will from now on, your synopsis was very good.

Great news submission, thanks. Needs a bigger picture at the top to draw people in!

Whereas I'm so glad it isn't. Every Games Workshop video game release in the past had me wishing for turn-based so the mechanics of the original game could be represented. FINALLY, they've made one right.

All I want to know is whether/when it's coming to consoles.

I don't remember exactly (Emabulator does) but I think the ideal is to get the width around or below 400. The height doesn't really matter (though you don't want to be ridiculous). The reason for this is that over 400 width breaks the page on most mobile devices.

Well they did have a real-time mode in Blood Bowl 1 but it didn't work too well.

Hey bean, good info, here's one of 400 width if that's any good: http://i.imgur.com/brLqoy0.png

Doctorossi, it's coming to PS4 and the Xbone as well as PC.

The other thing you can do because it is a youtube stream is just use the youtube stream as your "image". The format for that is (youtube)youtubechannelvideoidentifier*(youtube) - but you use brackets instead of parentheses. I can't use them in the example or the forum will read it as a command and you wouldn't be able to see it.

* The youtube channel identifier is the number that comes after the = sign in the url for your video. For this video it is 67VgKk8jL04. So for your video, you'd have this: (center)(youtube)67VgKk8jL04(/youtube)(/center) - but again, with brackets rather than parentheses.

Sorry to annoy you so much with this stuff, but your videos actually are well produced which is honestly rare for Youtube gaming news so I'd love to see more of it.

Thanks bean, I couldn't figure out how to get it working with the tags so I gave up xD

This's like the opposite of annoying, thank you so much for your advice and for your kind words ^_^
