The Nurgle servants come to stink out the pitch
Editor’s Note: The “Nurgle Team” DLC is not a free in-game update or part of a free DLC package. The aforementioned DLC costs $6.99 on their respective platforms (Steam, Xbox Games Store and PlayStation Network). The links within are US only.
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. Its team, recognizable by their unremitting stench, can count on their fearsome players to win, such as the Beast of Nurgle. The 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. Players can preorder it now and get 50% off the video game Blood Bowl 2 on Steam, as well as other exclusive bonuses!
