Cyanide studio and Bigben are proud to announce Blood Bowl: Death Zone, the real-time 1v1 game based on Games Workshop’s cult board game. The game is now available in Early Access through Steam.
Blood Bowl: Death Zone is a fast-paced game of football and violence. Two gamers take direct control of five player teams and battle each other in five minute real time matches. As in American football, the goal of each player is to score the most touchdowns but here almost everything is allowed on the field, not just passing and running with the (moving squig) ball, but also punching the opponent in the face or having a wizard blasting opponents with lightning spells.
The Death Zone challenge is a popular pre-game event among Blood Bowl fans. It pits legendary Star Players, backed by their generous sponsors and the support of four amateur players, against each other. Of course, all races from the Old World are allowed on the pitch and gamers will be able to pick teams of Orcs, Dwarfs, High Elves or even Humans. Additionally, each team is allowed the use a wizard, generously paid for by the team’s sponsor, to blast the opponents and buff the team members.
Blood Bowl: Death Zone is released in Early Access, which allows Cyanide to place the game into the hands of players as early as possible, in order to test and balance the gameplay with the feedback from the community.
Cyanide expects the game to be available for several months on Early Access before the official and final version is released. New features and more teams will be released progressively throughout the Early Access. At this earliest stage, the game contains four teams, multi-player matchmaking and is offered at a discounted price.
