So What Exactly is Mantic Games’ Dreadball?

July 12, 2012 by brennon

A very interesting leak here for you guys to get your mitts on. With Kings of War receiving its hardback Rulebook and Warpath heading into the first stages of its 2.0 rules what could be next from Mantic Games? Well, how about what appears to be a futuristic sports game?

Dreadball Logo

As you can see the games Dreadball logo has a little bit of the 80′s and 90′s about it so could we be seeing something that’s a little Tron like? Perhaps even something akin to Jumpball from Starship Troopers? Maybe a look at the Pitch might help shed a little light on things…

Dreadball Pitch Concept #1

What’s certain is that this isn’t a pretender to Blood Bowl or looking like anything we have seen before on the’Fantasy Sport’ market. I’m loving the cyberpunk style and hex based pitch. Now just to decipher what all those colours mean!

Human Concept Art

Obviously all good sports games need a few teams to duke it out and here is a snapshot of some concept art for the Human team. I would think it’s safe to assume that the Corporation has their hand in things and if that’s true then what about the other races in the Warpath universe? Forge Father teams, Veer-Myn, Marauders are all a possibility!

All I can say is that I’m loving what is on show so far and let’s hope as we move through the next couple of months more will be revealed about this interesting new angle from Mantic.

Are you as excited as I am to find out more?
