discusses what's changed between Early Access and the full
release, and the announcement has even more:
After a promising Early
Access phase, Cyanide and Bigben proudly announce the official release of Blood
Bowl: Death Zone on Steam.
Blood Bowl: Death Zone is a fast-paced game of football and violence, based on
Games Workshop’s cult board game. Two opponents each take control of a 4-player
team and battle it out in real-time matches that last for five minutes.
All the Old World races are allowed to play: Orcs, Dwarfs, High Elves, Chaos,
Undead, Lizardmen and even Humans. Contrary to other, mundane, sports Blood
Bowl: Death Zone means more than just passing and running with the (wandering
squig) ball; it also includes punching opponents in the face and blasting them
with a variety of spells.
During the 11 month Early Access phase, Cyanide was able to update and improve
the game thanks to feedback from the community: new teams, new skills, a single
player campaign as well as many key changes to gameplay were added.
To celebrate its official release, the game is available at a 50% discount for a
