announced Blood Bowl: Star Coach
. a tactical free-to-play game planned for launch in the second quarter of 2013 on PC, Mac and tablets. Based on Games Workshop's fantasy football game world, Blood Bowl: Star Coach tasks the player with creating his own Blood Bowl team (choosing from different races and players) and the development of his own offensive and defensive playbook. The player will then challenge other coaches, no matter which digital platform they play on, and choose the strategy that best fits his opponent.
The basics of this violent sport are simple: two teams, one ball. The team that carries the ball into the opponent's end zone scores a touchdown, and the team with the most touchdowns at the end of the game is the winner. But, as with the original Blood Bowl, no holds barred violence and dirty tricks are allowed. Matches are resolved by an online server and a ranking system designates the best coaches. Coaches can develop their teams in a variety of different ways and have the opportunity to improve their teams by hiring Star Players or recruiting new staff. A Cabalvision replay mode allows players to live out the blow-by-blow contest in full 3D.
