Warhammer is coming to Xbox One

Do you like playing American football with Warhammer characters? Well, Blood Bowl 2 could be exactly what you’re looking for. The turn-based strategy sports game is a fun blend of genres which incorporates numerous races from the Warhammer board game into a bizarre version of the real-world popular sport.

Blood Bowl 2 features a new graphics engine which promises to offer superior graphics to the original Blood Bowl and a new solo story campaign mode in addition to the usual multiplayer modes with both online and offline supported.

The game arrives on Xbox One on the 22nd of August and can now be pre-ordered. All pre-orders placed before the release date will be given free additional content including the Wood Elves race and their two star players, Dolfar Longstride and Jordell Freshbreeze.

Here’s the official description of this exclusive pre-order content:

Elves are amazingly agile and almost as fast as Skaven. Avoiding other’s tackles is a pure formality for them. Especially for the Wardancers whose ability to go through opposing defenses is nearly outmatched. Elves are excellent passers and catchers. Their game could become a true nightmare for other teams not as agile and fast as they are. The Treeman is probably the strongest player in the whole of Blood Bowl. He’s gifted with an extraordinary natural strength against which very few players can compete. However, the Treeman is extremely slow and has a bad tendency of taking root in the middle of the field. If that happens, he won’t be able to move…at all.

Blood Bowl 2 isn’t the only game based on Warhammer coming to the Xbox One. A first person action game called, Warhammer: The End Times – Vermintide is currently in development and due for release in the near future. The game will be one of many playable during a special PAX Prime event held by Microsoft to promote several upcoming Xbox One titles.
