Blood Bowl 3 will feature twelve different teams, compared to the eight teams Blood Bowl 2 provided.


It will contain a story-based campaign, several different multiplayer and competitive modes and features the most accurate representation of the tabletop game's rules to date.

All this takes place with turn-based tactical mechanics, allowing Blood Bowl players to not only play hard but play smart as well.


Blood Bowl 3 will be available on the PC through Steam, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and the Nintendo Switch.
