From the announcement:
Mantic Games is proud to announce Season 4 will be released to retailers in January and February 2015.
The new Season is spearheaded by a 48-page full colour rulebook, containing background, rules and stats for new teams, MVPs as well as new gameplay mechanics including Fans and Achievements.
Supporting the book are 4 new teams of plastic miniatures: the aquatic alien Sphyr, Hobgoblins, Unincorporated Rebs and the Forge Father Brokkr Team.
For the first time the figures come pre-assembled – players of the game can take the figures out of the box and use them on the pitch immediately. Each team will retail for an MSRP of $29.99.
There are also two box-sets of famous MVPs and a set of models representing Cheerleaders and Fans.
“DreadBall has grown from strength-to-strength since its launch in late 2012 and our burgeoning community continues to ask for more,” said Marketing Coordinator Chris Palmer, “Season 4 kicks-off a year of DreadBall that will see organised play, a dedicated website and a new standalone game – DreadBall Xtreme – all on the cards. It’s the most ambitious thing we’ve done yet, and we can’t wait to see the new teams on the pitches of the far future.”
