About the Post

Author Information

One of Raine's biggest hobbies has always been gaming. It all started with an Atari and spread out to Yu-Gi-Oh!, Magic: the Gathering, and Dungeons & Dragons. As an artist, Raine takes pride in painting models for games as well as making his own terrain. He's also been a writer for many years, working both in the journalism industry and writing pieces of fiction. He decided to create Initiative : Tabletop as a platform to talk about all things gaming that he simply thought were cool, and reviewing games became a part of it!

Mantic Games Announces DreadBall Xtreme

DreadBall Xtreme

DreadBall is a sport that anyone can enjoy, and it’s become a past-time that people flood stadiums to see. It’s a full-throttle, full-contact sport in which players must bring their A-game not only to win, but to stay alive. While the game, on the surface, is fun and exciting, there’s another circuit that many don’t know about. DreadBall Xtreme is the underground evil twin of the popular sports game, and it’s just around the corner.

Going light on the rules and heavy on the violence, DreadBall Xtreme offers matches where you can never expect any certain outcome. Teams wreck it out across makeshift arenas, ducking and dodging past crates and dangerous equipment to score Strikes while furious fans roar from the sidelines. Wealthy sponsors send players into the ring with promises of fame, but in the darkness the pitch can serve as a death sentence.

DreadBall Xtreme will be a brand new, standalone game that expands on the basic DreadBall rules to offer a new experience to players. Later this week the game will be popping up on Kickstarter in hopes to seek funding for its completion. Mantic Games has remained very true to their Kickstarter campaigns, and I have no doubt that this one will run just as smooth as their previous endeavors. Keep an eye out both on the Mantic blog and on Kickstarter for the campaign to appear!
