Blood Bowl 3 First Season

The highly anticipated first season of Blood Bowl 3 has officially kicked off today. For those needing a refresher, Blood Bowl 3 is the latest edition of the popular turn-based fantasy football game, available on PC, PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One platforms.

Don’t forget to check out the adrenaline-filled Season 1 Trailer, carrying both PEGI UK and ESRB ratings.

With the advent of the first season, players will be introduced to a slew of exciting new features. The launch comes with an official Ladder, a Blood Pass, and a progression system designed to keep players engrossed. As players level up and gain experience, they will unlock various rewards. As a token of appreciation for the loyal player base, the Season 1 Blood Pass will be offered for free, giving players instant access to the newest faction, the Lizardmen.

Additionally, in response to community requests, a significant feature initially intended for Season 2 is being fast-tracked to Season 1. This will enable players to reconnect to their game for a limited period should they encounter a disconnection, enhancing the gameplay experience.

The Lizardmen, a new faction, are making their debut in the game. Ideal for those seeking a blend of brute force and mobility, the Lizardmen faction is a unique assembly of both powerfully sturdy and incredibly swift players. While their passing game might not be their main forte, the Lizardmen gain strength with every match played, making them a particularly clever choice for seasoned coaches.

Below an overview of the game via Steam.

Strap on your boots, don your helmet, adjust your shoulder guards and chest plate… and slip a sharpened dagger into your belt (discreetly).

Wars are no longer fought in the Old World since the populace decided to resolve their differences through a sport dedicated to the god Nuffle: Blood Bowl. However, just as much blood is shed in this sport as on the battlefields it replaced. Murder, mutilation, cheating, corruption, sorcery and even divine intervention are all fair game on the pitch, to the delight of every rabid fan!

  • Be merciless but not brainless – Take control of a team from 12 factions available, each with its own unique characteristics, and hobble the progress of your opponents by positioning your players wisely. Dodge or ruthlessly eliminate those who get in your way and reach the end zone to score decisive touchdowns! The cleverest strategists will obviously have the advantage, but will that be enough? An out-of-control troll could devour a team-mate and change the course of the match.
  • You’re the boss – Create players; customize their appearance, emblems and armour; recruit cheerleaders and your coach; then compete in the fiercest competitions in the Old World. But be warned: injuries are common and there’s a strong possibility that some of your players will leave the pitch feet first, putting a permanent end to their career…

What’s new in Blood Bowl 3

  • Based on the official rules of the latest edition of the board game, including new skills and redesigned passing mechanics

The brand-new solo campaign

An agent has spotted your coaching achievements on the pitch and has decided to pay for you and your team to participate in a brand-new Blood Bowl event: the Clash of Sponsors. Can you destroy your opponents and make the crowd dream?
