Games Workshop and Cyanide Studio announce they are now offering an open beta of
Blood Bowl: Star Coach
, offering early
access to the Blood Bowl
spinoff they're creating for Windows, OS X, and
tablets. This is a free-to-play game, and they plan to reward testers with some
in-game space bux as a thank you. Here's word:
To thank the first players
for their contribution to this Beta, Cyanide will offer a pack of Cyans, usable
in-game when Blood Bowl®: Star Coach™ is officially launched. Blood Bowl®: Star
Coach™ is a tactical, free-to-play game, in which the player is placed at the
head of blood thirstry, glory hunting football team. Dwarfs, elves, humans and a
host of other fantasy creatures will be your keys to victory. It's up to the
coach to create his team and to set up the various defense and offence tactics.
That done, there's no relaxing as matches are played in a no-holds-barred
atmosphere with little guarantee that players will escape unscathed.
Fortunately, a replay mode allows the coach to understand his tactical errors
and to pinpoint strategies worth repeating. It’s a new game whose aim is to
create a hitherto unpublished experience which mixes team management and the
Blood Bowl world.
