The word’s out on two of the twelve new teams featuring in Blood Bowl: Legendary Edition, which arrives at the end of this year. The word, and also screenshots. The Pro Elves aren’t to be confused with the game’s existing Wood Elves, because they’re tougher than Wood Elves and as such would probably beat you up. The second team, the Ogres, offer unmatched brutality at the expense of their team roster being made up by Snotlings. Full press release after the jump.
New races aren’t the only thing coming in Blood Bowl: Legendary Edition, of course. There’s also new arenas (a snowy Norse one can be seen in the screens), a new Story mode which casts the player as a freelance coach and a more comprehensive tutorial. Exciting times! And thanks to the lovely Ian Hetherington for the tipoff.
Meet the Elves and the Ogres!
This week, we are pleased to present screenshots of not one, but two of the 11 new races that will join the 9 previous races in the new Blood Bowl: Legendary Edition’s at the end of the year! Also enjoy a glimpse of one of the new stadiums, where the teams will compete in bloody matches!
The “Pro” Elves typify the Elven tradition with speedy, agile, albeit fragile players! And though these Elves are not as fast as the Wood Elves, they are a little more resilient and can sustain a few more blocks than their cousins… only a few more though! Their specialized players make the “Pro” Elves team perfect for an efficient passing game.
On reflection, the Ogres’ teams offer the complete opposite when it comes to play style, The Ogres unmatched brutality – and stupidity – is balanced by the smallest and the weirdest Blood Bowl players: the Snotlings. At first sight, these little creatures may seem useless and only worth being stomped on by the opposite team (and that would be a fair evaluation!). Yet, they are essential to help the Ogres to actually win games; especially since the big ones tend to forget they are in the middle of a game when the blood begins to fly!
