The turn-based strategy series Blood Bowl will finally release its latest sequel on February 23rd, 2023. The previous installment was released nearly a decade ago in 2014, and the new game suffered multiple delays. Blood Bowl 3 will be available on PC, Switch, PlayStation, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.
You can watch today’s full release date trailer on publisher Nacon’s YouTube channel here:
Nacon’s trailer description specifically mentions the Xbox availability for launch, so it’s slightly possible that some of the other platforms won’t share the same release date, but that would be very unusual.
Since the Blood Bowl franchise hasn’t been around for a while, it’s easy for players to forget the series is attached to an alternate timeline of the Warhammer universe. The fantasy franchise is doing just fine, with Total War: Warhammer III receiving plenty of praise. The game unveiled its plans for Update 2.3 last week, including multiplayer Endgame Scenarios.
Blood Bowl is also based on a tabletop game, which explains why this series in particular was translated into a turn-based strategy title. One of the major selling points of Blood Bowl 3 will be its update ruleset, which was changed years ago.
That means plenty of fresh content, as seen in the trailer, which showed off a variety of the newest races. These include Black Orcs, Imperial Nobility, Old World Alliance and the Chaos Renegades.
Players will get to recruit and customize their own team in a solo campaign, which has received positive responses. The mythology of Warhammer is still a highlight of the IP, even if it pays a lot of homage. Also, it’s a relief that you can use your campaign team in any other mode, giving competitive more personality.
