News: With a PSP version in the Spring.
SouthPeak Games has announced they will be publishing the video game adaptation of Blood Bowl on the PC and Xbox 360 this January and on the PSP in the Spring.
The game originally began life as a mutant football spinoff of the Warhammer franchise. Developer Cyanide plans to include all of the turn-based, dice rolling action of the popular tabletop game:
"" Just in time for the human football season's end, SouthPeak is here to offer a less than traditional spin on classic football. With a rich heritage of table-top gaming, Blood Bowl is poised to tear your Windows PC, Xbox 360 and PSP system a new end zone. With turn-based gameplay and each play teetering on the roll of the dice, Blood Bowl will keep you on the edge of your seat from kickoff to final score. Inspired by the infamous Warhammer series, Blood Bowl brings some of the most vicious gameplay, dirty tricks and lest we forget ? secret weapons ? to the field in an all new way.
If you've never seen a goblin thrown into the end zone by a troll to score a touchdown, then prepare to be amazed! ""
?We're thrilled to have a part in bringing a proper retail version of Blood Bowl to North American gamers on Windows PC, Xbox 360 and PSP.? said Aubrey Norris, Manager of Human-Orc Relations at SouthPeak. ?It's never easy to get all these races to agree on something ? but if there's one thing they love its good competition with a lot of bloodshed!?
We'll have more soon.
