Blood Bowl 2, the sequel to the video game adaptation of Games Workshop’s famous board game that combines American football with the fantasy world of Warhammer, today welcomes a new race on its pitch: The Nurgle team. It’s team, recognizable by their unremitting stench, can count on their fearsome players to win, such as the Beast of Nurgle, are available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Mac.
Nurgle teams are a form of Chaos team, whose players worship the god Nurgle – the Chaos god of corruption and disease. He rewards his players by granting them a rather unpleasant disease known as “Nurgle’s Rot”. If anyone gets close enough to get a decent sniff, they’ll contract one of Nurgle’s nasty diseases and usually die before anyone can suggest a new personal hygiene regime.
As with most Chaos teams, the Nurgle team is at its best when it can get stuck in and directly take on opposing players. What it has in strength and toughness, the Nurgle team lacks in agility. Nurgle Warriors have a poor Agility value and Move rate, and do not make good ball bearers. With such a terrible average Move rate, these worshippers of the Chaos god Nurgle could find themselves being beaten not just by the opposing side, but also the clock!
We remind you that the new edition of the mythical board game Blood Bowl will release on November 25. You can preorder it now and get 50% off the video game Blood Bowl 2 on Steam, as well as other exclusive bonuses!
