Blood Bowl: Meet our Champions - the Dwarfs!

Cyanide and Focus Home Interactive have the pleasure to unveil the third video dedicated to the races available in Blood Bowl!

This week’s trailer focuses on the Dwarfs! Desperately slow but incredible resilient, the Dwarfs are really tough Blood Bowl players not afraid to pick on targets way, way bigger than they are! Tactics involving a running or passing game are out of question: the Dwarfs will always prefer to run through the obstacle rather than avoiding it!

An ultra-violent strategy game based on Warhammer Fantasy and American football, Blood Bowl allows players to create the ultimate“fantasy” sports teams. Coaches can build bone-crushing teams of Orcs, Wood Elves, Humans, Dwarfs and many more fantastic creatures– then throw them into the stadium for the ultimate blood sport! Blood Bowl is strategic, action-packed and violent, requiring coaches to use their best tactics, team design– and a dose of pure ruthless bloodlust always helps too!

All of these charming creatures are waiting for you to play in highly contested games soon on PC, Xbox 360 and handheld consoles.
