Legend Bowl Update Includes Improvements and Fixes For Gameplay, Franchise & Much More

Another Legend Bowl update has arrived featuring plenty of improvements and fixes for gameplay, franchise mode and much more.

“All-Time Leaders” have been added to the franchise stats section. This menu displays all-time statistics for different categories and also tracks player awards. Pre-snap motions have been added for both offense and defense.

Players will also see improved AI quarterbacks highlighted by faster QB’s running the ball more, other QB’s checking down more often and some rattled quarterbacks throwing desperation passes. A new ProSet 23 roster has been added to the custom roster list designed to resemble professional teams.

That’s just SOME of the details in the update, check out the full patch notes below.

Legend Bowl is currently $24.99 on Steam and worth every penny. A console release announcement is just around the corner.


  • QB sneaks and dedicated QB runs now occur in game.
  • QB runner now chooses side with more blocker and also runs more to the sidelines for improved running.
  • QB can no longer throw while performing ball carrier move sequence.
  • AI QB passes should have less interception chance now.
  • QB’s now check to see if check down or delayed receiver is upright and ready to catch before targeting that receiver. Desperate throws will still throw to anyone because they are rattled and make mistakes throwing to players that may not be ready to catch.
  • Faster QB’s have a shot at dodging tacklers when 2 yard or more behind line and scrambling for their lives. Did this to help with constant sacks and no way out.
  • AI QB logic updated to force longer throws during 4th down and onside conversions.
  • HUMAN tries to throw with LT while within width of blockers (intentional grounding territory), then random receiver targeted with accuracy penalty.
  • Break tackle tuned for superstar and legend.
