Blood Bowl 2: Legendary Edition in Detail

It’s been over a year since Blood Bowl 2’s release, which makes it about time for the publisher to bundle the whole game and its parts into one shiny new package, and sell you the same product again. Yes that’s me being overly cynical, not that that never happens, but the point is, Blood Bowl 2: Legendary Edition is better than an “HD reskin” or a “GOTY edition” in a shiny new package.

The Legendary Edition comes equipped with the following list of extras:

  • 8 new races
  • Amazons
  • Goblins
  • Vampires
  • Ogres
  • Halflings
  • Pro Elves
  • Underworld
  • Kislev (based on the rules of Slanns)
  • Chaos Dwarfs
  • Khemri
  • All 14 current races, to make 24 races total

In addition, Legendary also includes: new modes, new campaign, new competition system, team editor, multiracial teams, new skills, new AI, new cheerleaders and lots more. But most importantly of all, existing players won’t have to buy everything twice, instead they can get all the extra contents of the legendary edition just through an upgrade DLC.

For me, it’s become off putting how much games are sliced up into portions and sold to you piecemeal, so the Legendary edition encompasses a version of Blood Bowl 2 that I find much more appealing. Blood Bowl 2: Legendary Edition will be with us sometime this summer (price yet to be determined).


Official Press Release

February 09, 2017 – Blood Bowl 2: Legendary Edition brings plenty of new content and features to the pitch!

Blood Bowl 2, the sequel to the video game adaptation of Games Workshop’s classic tabletop game combining American football with the Warhammer fantasy world, has already gathered nearly half a million players on PC and consoles since it released over a year ago.

The Blood Bowl 2 community will be pleased to learn that Focus and Cyanide will release Blood Bowl 2: Legendary Edition later this year. This is the version highly anticipated by the fans, offering ALL the official races from the Blood Bowl board game, including the sly Goblins, as well as a brand new race, the Kislev Circus and their ferocious Tame Bears! These races are coming along with their Star Players and a new Khemri stadium, located at the feet of their imposing pyramids.

Blood Bowl 2: Legendary Edition also contains loads of new content: new races, new game modes as well as many new tools and options enriching an already deep multiplayer experience. Blood Bowl 2 Legendary Edition will be available as a stand-alone game for newcomers, and as an affordable expansion for all Blood Bowl 2 players.

Experience new game modes such as a brand new Solo Career mode, or the new Challenge mode, which will put your wits and skills to the test through crazy and challenging game situations. And for the first time in the history of Blood Bowl, spice-up your matches with teams made up from a combination of players from different races, or go wild and lead a team of All-Star Players! Last but not least, Cyanide is developing new features and options for multiplayer – these new options and tools, long-requested by a passionate community, will greatly expand the possibilities offered to players to communicate together, create, set up and customize their online leagues and competitions.

Stay tuned for more information. Blood Bowl 2 Legendary Edition will be available as a stand-alone game for newcomers, and as an affordable extension for all Blood Bowl 2 players later this year on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
