Blood Bowl 2 has its first gameplay footage, showcasing part of a match between Humans and Orcs.
Unfortunately, IncGamers’ resident Blood Bowl expert Peter Parrish isn’t here to cover this, which means you’re stuck with me… and I can’t really comment on how authentic it looks. It does look good, though. Graphically it looks nice, the interface looks clean (despite using an Xbox gamepad), and there are no 10-minute loading times, all of which are vast improvements on Cyanide’s first attempt at Blood Bowl.
Not that I was actually expecting to see 10-minute loading times in an officially released bit of gameplay footage, mind you. I mean, that might still happen. I just really hope it doesn’t.
Still, Blood Bowl 2 seems a lot simpler to understand and play than its predecessor, and that’s quite a big thing. Let’s hope this gameplay trailer is accurate, eh?
You can have a look at it below and judge for yourself – and you probably should, as there is every chance you know more about Blood Bowl than I do. Blood Bowl 2 is due out this spring.Related to this article

When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
