'Blood Bowl 2' gets medieval on the football field

Sony has debuted Blood Bowl 2's launch trailer ahead of the game's impending release on September 22nd. As with its Sega-based spiritual predecessor, Mutant League Football, BB2 allows players to control a ragtag team of orcs, humans, elves, goblins, trolls and other fantastical beings -- each with their own special abilities. And while the basic goal of the game is the same as the Madden franchise ("usually the team with the most points wins the game," the famed coach/sportscaster once quipped), brutality isn't just allowed; it's strongly encouraged. I mean, who needs to tackle when you can run down that running back with a spiked steamroller or flatten a tight end with a flying body slam? The game will be available on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
