DreadBall Xtreme has finally made it’s way onto Kickstarter and of course we want to make sure you guys see all the goodies on offer. So, check them out below as well as some more information from Mantic Games!
As you can see the boxed game is once again packed full of miniatures. This is what a lot of people like to see, real miniatures right off the bat showing them what they are getting. It might not be the ‘start up’ approach but it does show off some snazzy reasons to start pledging.
From the Kickstarter…
- No Referee = More Violence for Everyone: with no one to stop the bloodshed, anything goes! Sucker punches and stomps are the norm, and the introduction of explosive collars, deadly traps and bloodsucking aliens only increase the level of violence.
- Customize your Battlefield: games are organized in prisons and warehouses at a moment’s notice, using industrial scenery to shake things up – everywhere from the scoring zone to the ball launch location can change!
- Play as Enigmatic Sponsors: the powerful organizers behind the game, Sponsors dictate your play-style and are experts in intimidation, blackmail and illegal gambling. Best of all, Sponsors allow you to build entirely unique teams out of any player combination you like!
These Convicts and Asterians are looking utterly epic and I think two of the best teams that Mantic has put out for DreadBall, well, discounting the Forge Fathers of course (Dwarven bias 101).
I love the idea of playing as these sponsors as well, adding another level of flavour to the game and making it feel more narrative as a whole. It’s neat to see these varying versions of DreadBall out there and twined with the environment packs you have so many ways to play the game now.
As I’ve been writing this the game has already been funded 50% (it might have gone up more by the time I finish) so I suggest diving in and keeping an eye on things to see what the stretch goals are going to be!
Will you be sponsoring?
