The world can't have enough Warhammer games, apparently. So, to appease the Blood God, Focus Home Interactive is releasing Blood Bowl to iPad. This is essentially a turn-based strategy football take on the Warhammer series, where players use the standard elven, dwarven, and orcish units to form teams where the goal is to get the ball into the end zone. The difference between this and the average football game, besides the turn-based strategy nature of it, is that it's possible to injure opposing players. Roger Goodell frowns on this whole endeavor.

The game is aiming for July release, with the hook being that the game will support cross-platform multiplayer between iPad, Android, and PC versions of the game, with singleplayer modes available as well.

    Awesome. Just got back into the actual board game (3rd ed). So much fun. Like WHQ, I'm expecting a decent enough conversion, but no digital incarnation will ever be as pleasurable as the real thing. On the note of fantasy football, I still play Speedball 2 - ridiculously good fun.

  • armilla

    Brad Nicholson is probably stoked!

  • Jake7905

    I'm assuming that it's a premium game (how else would they pay for that Warhammer license?), so it's an automatic, price doesn't matter, buy button mashing, insta-buy.

    • Jake7905

      .....kidding about the Warhammer license, but seriously, anyone know if this is a premium release?

      • ludka33

        One can only hope. I'm actually stoked for this.

    • DesertFox

      According to pockettactics, the Humans and Orcs will be available at download (no mention of cost), with additional races available as IAPs... I'm incredibly stoked at this announcement!!

  • anabolicMike

    I am in

  • ngajoe

    Now THIS is fantasy football I can get in to!

  • DanRiverBrew

    Yes!! Been waiting for a digital version of this since I've sold off all my WH and BB miniatures.

    • DesertFox

      There is a very good version on the PC already. Just crossing my fingers they stay faithful to the boardgame while utilizing the touchscreen (which the PC game almost seems made for). If it's anywhere near as good, this is an automatic buy for me (IAPs and all)!!

  • icepulse

    Wonder if this is a port of the old 360 / PSP game.

    • Poo

      That's what I'm wondering too.

  • worldcitizen1919

    Looks cool!

  • Bloodangel

    iPhone?

  • idmonfish

    It is from the developers of the PC game and plays friendly with it online so yes a premium development.

  • Sythys

    I already own the Chaos Edition on the PC, but have been waiting for a possible iPad version of this game. I've even been searching all over the internet for even a clue of this. My excitement has officially piqued!

    Double dipping will be in order.

  • ste86uk

    Been thinking and mentioned for ages that this should be out on iOS. Surprised it's taken so long as it did to even make any Warhammer games! Saddened that it's only iPad though.

  • {SQUEEK}

    Looking forward to this very much

  • Zenfar

    Now all we need is Warhammer basketball

  • krztoff

    I'd thought about trying to find a copy of the tabletop game but this will be a good way to see if it's for me before I do. I never bothered with the PC game and this looks completely unrelated to that.

  • icepulse

    If I could get Metal Gear Ac!d & MG:A2 on my iPhone, I'd be a happy lad.

  • swarmster

    Wow, awesome! I haven't played Blood Bowl since the (awesome, though buggy) 1995 DOS version. If this is half as good as that was, it'll be a blast.

  • Bool Zero

    Omg BLOOD BOWL!!! Spiking the buy button as soon as this releases!

  • crashmonkey

    So we get the announcement July 2nd saying it's coming out in early July. It's now mid-July and becoming dangerously close to late July. They didn't specify the year however. Maybe they mean early July 2015?

  • Sythys

    I've grown jaded with promised dates. I'll just be happy when it comes out. Of course, (if the game is really good) I would love to play the Chaos Dwarves or a Nurgle team. I hope the God Nuffle sees fit to make other teams IAP.
