Blood Bowl 3 details teams, Special Play Cards, Campaign Mode, customization, post-launch support
During the Games Made in France event last week, Cyanide revealed new information about Blood Bowl 3, an adaptation of Games Workshop’s cult board game. The developer shared details about Special Play Cards, Campaign Mode, customization, and post-launch support.
Here’s the full rundown, including new screenshots:
Project lead Gautier Brésard and game designer Basile Bastian first detailed the 12 teams available at the game’s launch. The indispensable Human, Orc, Dark Elf, Elven Union, Skaven, Dwarf, Nurgle and Chaos Chosen teams will of course be available. Four new teams will be added, including two from the new edition of the board game: the Black Orcs and the Imperial Nobility. The latter can limit the movement of opponents through dedicated skills. The last two teams are none other than the Old World Alliance, which includes dwarves and humans, and the Chaos Renegades, which is made up of players so dirty and cheating that no other team wanted them. Each team will have different strategies based on passing, dodging or beating opponents to the ground.
Blood Bowl 3 runs on Unreal Engine and will be the most complete and faithful adaptation of the board game to date. For example, it introduces Special Play Cards, which can be used to add temporary skills to units or to assassinate a member of the opposing team before the match begins. Cyanide has also added its own spin on the spoof world of Blood Bowl 3 with a campaign mode and the inclusion of different characters, such as sponsors and charismatic Star Players who will challenge players of the game.
Finally, the developers provided information on customization. There will be more customization options than previous editions: colors, patterns, logos, pieces of armor, stadiums and many other elements can be changed. After launch, Blood Bowl 3 will also be getting more content, competitions, tweaks and community support.
Blood Bowl 3 is a game based on strategy, audacity and risk tied to how the dice fall in a wacky world. The developers have also focused on making the game accessible for new players with a redesigned interface, user-friendly feedback and flexible timers.

Funnier, bloodier and more spectacular than ever, Blood Bowl 3 will be a hit with fans of the universe and competitive players alike. At launch, the game will include 12 races, each with their own arena and team of cheerleaders, Campaign and Multiplayer modes, and loads of customisation options. Regular content updates will be added after launch.
Blood Bowl 3 launches for Switch in early 2021.
