Blood Bowl 3 closed beta will kick off on PC in early 2021


NF Hell

All fans of the gory grid iron have reasons to celebrate, as Cyanide's violent sports title Blood Bowl will be returning in 2021, once again bringing all of the violent action of Games Workshop's classic tabletop title to both PC and current and next-gen platforms.

While there is no official launch date for Blood Bowl 3 as of yet, publisher Nacon has announced that anyone pre-ordering Blood Bowl: Second Season Edition on PC will bag themselves access to a Blood Bowl 3 closed beta, expected to launch in the early months of 2021. The publisher teases that there will be other ways of gaining access, but is yet to reveal them.

Originally launched as part of Games Workshop's early run of fantasy board games, Blood Bowl was a staple of late-'80s role-playing, combining all the action of the NFL with the chaotic warfare and fantasy characters of the Warhammer franchise - topped off with a streak of black humor.

Blood Bowl 3 will feature a selection of new teams - including the Black Orcs, Imperial Nobility, Chaos Renegades and the Old World Alliance - as well as new players, arenas, and cheerleaders, an extensive campaign mode, and more customization options than ever before seen in the franchise's history.
