Showing that a failure to understand human brains isn’t limited to their UI-team, Cyanide’s marketing folk decided it’d be a good idea to announce their Blood Bowl Legendary Edition on April 1st. But no! It’s for reals and everything. Basically, it appears to be an expandalone expansion to the game – and while it’s possible they’ll do an reduced price upgrade or even a Witcher-esque free thing, I suspect you’ll have to pay full-whack for what it offers. Luckily, what it offers is really quite exciting. Mainly, adding twelve new team types to the eight already in the game. This includes such joys as the Undead, Amazon, Norse and Ogres. They’re also promising new arenas, a story-lead single-player game and rules tweaks to keep it up to date with the Living Rulebook. Let’s hope they manage to work in some polish to the league systems (i.e. Any polish) and UI before its released near the end of the year. That said, the Vampire player in the shades above really is splendid. I fear the Skavenblighters will be coming out of retirement.
