The PC adaptation of the Games Workshop board game that put the fantasy in fantasy football is getting a free dose of hot Dark Elf action next month.
Of the more than 20 races in the Blood Bowl board game, Cyanide Studio only included 8 in the initial PC release, and there were some grievous oversights. Where are the Dark Elves? That's a question that will be answered next month, as the pointy-eared bastards arrive as part of a free update to the game. Not only will the team, which combines the trademark elven agility with sheer brutality, be available as a free download, some stores will be getting a special Blood Bowl Dark Elves Edition that comes with their evil packed right in. From the official description:
"Dark Elves combine Elven agility with a cruel brutality. They are perfectly at ease playing the ball or crushing skulls with their callous fists. Furthermore, their Witch Elves excel in that field, as long as they don't get caught up in the euphoria of battle! Dark Elves are masters of deception and can also call upon deadly Assassins to instill fear (and the cold blade of a dagger!) in their adversaries' heart."
I don't know how the game survived without the Dark Elves in the first place. Not sure how the other teams will survive once they're included.
