    It's 2009 already? /rubs sleepy eyes
    Something I just learned from checking the forum on the official page, is that each platform offers a different game:
    On PC, you control the entire team, a bit like an RTS (so, it's written).
    On 360, you control one player (at a time?)
    On DS/PSP, the game is turn-based only.
    on rules:
    there are two sets of game rules: Standard rules (which are LRB5.0 compliant), and Blitz (which adds extra rules).

    AFAIK, both PC and console versions are mixed mode (ie, can be played turn based or realtime), so what's listed for PC is the turn based (ie, true to board game) and for the console's the realtime (like Madden). The DS, yes, loses the realtime mode.

    LRB5 rules = me happy. Seems like it's gonna be faithful to the board game!

    And they are doing DLC for the other races.

    Plus I think I read that you can use any teams but the models won't be available at first - so you can use the wood elves for a high elf team etc.

    Yep, found it here

    I'm very excited about this.

    Any news on a release date as yet? It seems ages since I first heard about this game. I do like the new trailer.

    I'd be delighted to know the release date, for this. Despite it being the "end of March", the official site's still in teaser mode.
    As it turns out, sometimes, research doesn't just bring you good news. :( An update from GDC, is that the 360 version's now due in September.... D:

    A glimmer of positive:
    Focus Home Interactive has also confirmed that additional teams--including undead and dark elf--will be made available after the game ships on the PC, Xbox 360, and, possibly, the PSP.

    Da FULL SITE is now up, boyz! :D As is an application form for getting involved with the PC multiplayer beta. Linked here is a section full of details about the game, and how it will play (but you can easily access the other parts from the sidebar, too). The animated character models accompanying some pieces of text is also another great feature, and, as a further bonus, the Living Rulebook official resource, used across Blood Bowl (tabletop/pc/console) is available for download from the media section.

    There should be a lot more coverage of the game about here, and other places, after April 17th, when a Blood Bowl press event will be held in Nottingham - in the mean time, why not see if you can WIN a pass to attend, in their community contest! Lots to see on the official site. :)

    I have been really looking forward to this game since the day I heard they were making and the excitment increased when they opened the website but from what I have seem it looks like the game wont be out untill September for the 360 now! I did see that on Wiki though.

    If that is true though, that fucking sucks big time!

    As long as they get it right, I don't mind waiting. Might have a dabble on the PSP version while I wait.

    Well yes, I agree that as long as the time is used to make the game as true to the rules and gameplay as physically possible that is a very good thing.

    I just want to play it now!
    Hate waiting.

    Yep, I've still got more than enough of the 360's back-catalogue to get through to be bothered about a delay; especially if it allows them to get it right from kick-off.

    Faithful conversion of Necromunda next please.

    Signed up for the Beta, although the 360 version is the one I'll buy.

    Necromunda would be great. A proper 40K game would also be nice.

    How about them including these with the game in the first place? /sigh

    Necromunda with user generated levels and GM mode for story arcs would rock my world.

    I don't think I have looked forward to a game release as much as I am for this.

    May dust off the Blood Bowl I have hidden somewhere in a box in the attic and blag someone to give me a long overdue game.

    So glad I could never bring myself to sell it.

    Has anyone ever seen any of the other games Cyanide's making, ie. do they have a clue what they're doing? I have to say Horse Racing Manager sounds intriguing.

    I got a Battlefield Heroes Key this morning. Shame because I think I'd rather have one of these.
