Mantic has been very very busy beavers – and today they laid out Season 5 of Dreadball for the world:
A Taste of the Xtreme
Forget what you think you know!
The X-citement of Xtreme comes to the DGB – sort of!
New teams, new rules and a whole lot of fresh havoc can only mean one thing – it’s new season time for the Galaxy’s Greatest Sport ™
The regs get relaxed for the first time ever to allow modified organics, tailor made robots and even experimental limb grafts in the ongoing search for the perfect DreadBall player.
Exhibition Matches allow coaches to go wild, drafting in players of any shape, size or species for one off matches where anything goes. Think you could create the perfect combination of Guards, Jacks and Strikers? Now’s the time to prove it.
Free Agents arrive to lend their arms, tentacles and teeth to the highest bidder.
New teams bring the Xtreme edge – or do they?
The fifth Season of DreadBall begins in June. It brings with it:
Xtreme Arena Teams: All the rules for playing the Convicts and Asterian Kalyshi in original DreadBall.
Brewed in a Vat and The Mechanics of Perfection: Build your own bespoke players with unique abilities. Choose from a range of heads, torsos, arms, legs/wheels/skies and tails to build the ultimate DreadBall player.
See the first rules previews for the Mechanites and Kovossian Mutant teams here on Quirkworthy.
We Can Rebuild Him: Create the next generation of DreadBall player with enhancement options available to all DreadBall teams.
Free Agents: Free Agents have existed since Season One, yet Season 5 introduces two new Free Agent tables. Now underdogs can take Free Agents straight from Xtreme in their team, in addition to a few players from the teams included in Season 5.Strikezone Stunners: A new crop of bespoke and characterful MVPs join the upper echelons of fame and fortune (or infamy and notoriety depending on who we are talking about.)
Author’s Note – Kickstarter backers and some of our hardcore fans may already have seen some of these shots, but for most of the general public this will be the first time that all of this has been out into the public domain.
More Dreadball coverage in the days ahead.
