Blood Bowl II is looking sharp as an Orc’s tooth

Get ready for a better look at the game and a huge graphical bump over the first Blood Bowl.

Cyanide Studios’ rebirth of the classic board game turned PC title continues with Blood Bowl II. If you played the first installment a few years back, then you already know that it’s a fairly faithful adaptation of the Games Workshop original, and it looked pretty good for its time too. BB2 though, looks a whole lot better still.

Developed by Cyanide Studios, Blood Bowl 2 is even more ambitious than the previous installment with an overhauled look and a variety of new features. Its brand new graphics engine was specifically developed for this sequel, enabling the game to display high-quality visuals, graphics, and effects that take the Blood Bowl license to the next level. Animations have been overhauled, dynamic cameras bring more punch to the matches, and the “Cabalvision” interface and corrosive commentators Jim Johnson and Bob Bifford (who made a noteworthy appearance in the game’s first video teaser) all faithfully recreate the thrills and atmosphere of intense Blood Bowl games.

In addition to the new looks, you can also expect to see new features in both the solo and multiplayer modes including an actual, deep single player experience. More than just playing through a bunch of one-off matches, you’ll head up one of the biggest teams in the league and have to fight (literally) your way past the best of the best in the Warhammer world in order to reach the pinnacle of Blood Bowl glory and grab the trophy for yourself.

Cyanide promises a lot more to come for the game over the next few months before it launches on the PC, so stay tuned.
