Blood Bowl 2 to break tackles, bones on PC, Xbox One, PS4
Developer Cyanide Studio and publisher Focus Home Interactive have announced plans to revisit the world of Blood Bowl not only on the PC, but also on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Like its 2009 predecessor, Blood Bowl 2 will be a virtual adaptation of a Games Workshop pen and paper game that lampoons American football by replacing players with Warhammer fantasy creatures and the sport's brutal violence with especially brutal violence. Blood Bowl 2 is described as "even more ambitious" than the first game, and boasts a wholly new graphics engine that can be seen in action in a trailer beyond the break. Detailed gameplay information is not yet available, but we do know that Blood Bowl 2 will reach the PC in Spring of 2015 and that Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions are also currently in development.

Publisher Focus Home Interactive claims that more information on Blood Bowl 2, including screenshots and additional gameplay footage, will arrive soon.
