Blood Bowl 2: the Star Players of Blood Bowl shine on the pitch in Gamescom Trailer!

For Gamescom, Blood Bowl 2, the sequel to the video game adaptation of Games Workshop's famous board game that combines American football with the fantasy world of Warhammer, today releases a new video, with the true stars of Blood Bowl stealing the spotlight! 

The Star Players are the Superstars of Blood Bowl: skilled veteran players who became true living legends thanks to their prowess in matches. Their mere presence on the pitch makes the fans and spectators go utterly wild, while casting fear into the heart of their opponents!

Star Players are incredibly talented, owning to decades of intense Blood Bowl matches. They boast exceptional stats, higher than that of regular players, along with extraordinary skills usually not available to normal players. This deadly combination of stats and skills make them a force to be reckoned with on the pitch, whether they focus on tricks (agility, secret weapons, or special skills such has hypnotic gaze or throwing a teammate with the ball), or sheer strength to beat the opponent team. 

Matching their skillset, their hiring fee is also exceptionally high, and they will only ever join your team for a single match. However, if you can spare the Gold to afford hiring one (or even two!) of them, they will be worth the hiring cost, as they might very well turn the tide of the match, all by themselves. 

Blood Bowl 2 is currently available for pre-order, with, as a bonus, one of two additional races (the Wood Elves or the Lizardmen). Players who pre-order the game on Steam will also receive access to the Multiplayer Beta of the game, which will start a few weeks before release.

Blood Bowl 2 will release on PS4, Xbox One and PC on September 22.
