Blood Bowl game Catch-All

The real-time option isn't in the beta is it? I'm personally interested in the turn-based but I also would like to know how viable and fun the game is when just playing football with a friend beside you.

You can make a real time league, some already up. On a sad note a friend got an e-mail that he didn't get into the multiplayer beta. Sadder was that it also said it was almost over... Like a week to go.

I got an email today telling me the beta would end after this weekend.

This makes me a Sad Panda.

Hopefully we can get a proper league going once the retail hits.

Jessicafromfocus posted a thread with some new info, one naming a release date for France as June 9th.

- Concerning the release date
We gave a release date for France at the Games Day. If I don’t give you more details on a date for the other countries that’s because I have not this kind of information right now. I can tell you that when the French release will come, the shop on the website will open and you’ll be able to get multi-lingual digital version...

Whoo Hoo! Also mentions a blood bowl collector edition with stickers, strat book, and an in game retro blood bowl look. Curious what they mean by a retro look though.

badly painted static models instead of the animated players perhaps?

Well someone suggested in the thread maybe it had the cardboard pitch, and minies as if you were playing the tabletop game. Would be interesting to see if so.

Astrogranite pitch maybe? That's the one thing that has changed since the old days.

I wonder if I should pick it up here. Since there's a lot of french dudes here they may export it to Quebec.

Usually European packages are teh suck though

So earlier this year there was talk of a June release... since June starts tomorrow, I was wondering if anybody was aware of a specific release date or delay?

18th I think, have to look it up again. it's release is tied to something in france, but they mentioned that digital versions for all languages would be available the same day.

I went to put the DS version on in my Gamefly queue and wasn't able to find the game listed anywhere so I sent an email to support. They responded that they didn't feel Blood Bowl would be a title worth purchasing as demand would be too low. When you look at the sh*t they have available for the Wii and DS it's shocking that they could say this. So they are not going to have Blood Bowl available for any system. FAIL!

That kind of stuff makes me nervous. Has anyone pre-ordered anywhere? I want to play!

I was just planning on buying it direct when they release the digital multilanguage version on the 18th. That is if they still plan on releasing on the 18th.

It's hard to preorder when I don't even think the official website has the release date posted.

According to IGN, the latest release date is 9/30/09.

Isn't that one of their generic "we don't know" dates?

Beats me. I'm made of dough, what do I know?

Cyanide/Focus stated in the forums that the game is going to be released in France june 18th and will be available as a digital download that day. The current date for release for the US and UK seems to be September to coincide with the 360 for some reason...

Since the digital version will be multilanguage I'm not going to wait till the US release. That is what I hope I can do on the 18th. I'll be a sad panda if I actually have to wait for the US release.

Any word on which digital distribution service will sell it?

Steam?

That I have no idea about really. I hope they offer it on steam myself. This is what is on the Focus website when it comes to downloads. Oh and I can't find any mention of Blood Bowl on there either...

I hope it's on Steam.

They've updated the website with a place to enter your e-mail so you can be notified when the digital download is available.

Well, I've added my email because I want to know when it's available, but I'll probably be waiting to pick up a physical copy anyways.

New info. 26th of June now.

Pre-order page is up. I'm tempted to wait, hoping it'll show up on Steam.

It's a day one buy for me if it's on steam, if it's through any other distribution method I'll probably hold off for a price drop.

Yeah. Looks bad from where I'm standing

I'll be waiting for the 360 version. Any news on release date for it?

I think a thread on their site said September-ish.

I'm not sure what I'll do. If we could get a league going here or with my friends, I'd just go on whatever platform the league is on (assuming my PC could handle it.)

In the forums they said it'll be on steam in sept.
