PARIS, France - October 15, 2010
Two weeks before its release, Blood Bowl Legendary Edition unveils exclusive images of the Vampire team! Discover this formidable Blood Bowl team - one of the 11 new playable races in the Legendary Edition, which releases October 28th (October 29th in Germany).
Widely considered to be among the best players in Blood Bowl, Vampires are respected - or feared - by all. Their superior strength gives them the advantage in most fights, and their great agility, on par with the best Elf players, allows them to execute a wide range of tactics. As a bonus, their ability to hypnotize opponents lets them move freely on the field. But be careful -- Vampires have an uncontrollable bloodlust, and it's not unusual for a player to leave the field and make a meal of an unlucky spectator.
