Blood Bowl 2 - first stadium reveal with screenshots!

Development of Blood Bowl 2 is going full steam ahead! Blood Bowl 2 is the sequel to Cyanide Studios' video game adaptation of the famous board game from Games Workshop that combines American football with the Warhammer fantasy world. We can now unveil one of the most important elements: the first-ever Blood Bowl 2 stadium! While the cement is hardly dry, fans are already packed in and waiting for the carnage in these two screenshots. 

Orc clans from all over the Old World worked like crazy to build this magnificent stadium. Human and goblin teams will be christening it under the sharp eye of the totally-unbiased goblin referee, who has almost certainly been bribed by one of the teams. Probably both. 

Developed by Cyanide Studios, Blood Bowl 2 is even more ambitious than the previous installment with an overhauled look and a variety of new features. Its brand new graphics engine was specifically developed for this sequel, enabling the game to display high-quality visuals, graphics, and effects that take the Blood Bowl license to the next level. Animations have been overhauled, dynamic cameras bring more punch to the matches, and the "Cabalvision" interface and corrosive commentators Jim Johnson and Bob Bifford (who made a noteworthy appearance in the game's first video teaser ) all faithfully recreate the thrills and atmosphere of intense Blood Bowl games. 

Blood Bowl 2 also brings a bunch of new features to Solo and Multiplayer modes making it more accessible for first-time players and more enjoyable for seasoned veterans. A stunning and ambitious Solo campaign puts players at the head of one of Blood Bowl's most famous teams and challenges them to climb to the top through a series of original and truly unique matches. League mode lets players manage their own team, club, and even stadium. We'll soon be showing off some of these substantial and striking innovations that make Multiplayer mode even more thrilling. 

Over the coming weeks and months we look forward to releasing more screenshots, new information about features, solo and multiplayer modes and, of course, the first Blood Bowl 2 game videos!
