    Hey coaches,

    The Legendary Edition of Blood Bowl 2 has been announced at Le What's Next de Focus, our press event in February 2017. We're pleased to finally unveil all the info about this new edition!

    Release date

    2017 – we’re aiming at late summer (early September) but depending on how the tests go, it may be a bit delayed. We have some complicated features on the list (rez mode for example) and we want to implement them correctly. We'd prefer a slight delay than a messy launch.

    Platform

    PC/Mac, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

    Price

    • For new players: the Legendary Edition with ALL the content of Blood Bowl 2 at the price of a full game. Contains BB2 base game + Team Pack (Wood Elf/Lizardmen/Nurgle/Norse/Necromantic/Undead/Chaos Dwarfs/Khemri) + Official Expansion.

    • For existing owners of BB2: the Official Expansion content for the price of a big DLC.

    You'll still be able to purchase individual races if you wish.

    Compatibility

    Full compatibility between the 2 versions. Most small features and quality of life changes will be available to all BB2 players, even those who didn't purchase the Official Expansion.

      • Teams composed of 16 Starplayers.
      • These teams will have a specific tag as well.

      • Players can use the chat during the pause.
    • FAME displayed during a match

    • New cheerleader models (not one per team, but a bit more diversity).

    • Cheerleaders will have the same colors as the team they're supporting.

    • Option to display the tooltip in dices probability (“2+” instead of “83%”).

    • A lot of other small things – mainly “quality of life” improvements.
