Play the second Beta today!



Hello everyone,

We’re happy to release Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 Pre-order Beta 2 today!

We are currently aiming for a 6PM CET / 5PM GMT / 12PM EST / 9AM PST launch, but stay tuned as we may do a soft release a few hours earlier to make sure everything is working as expected. This Beta will last until the full release of the game on January 24.

In case you missed it last week, you can take a look at our new campaign trailer, breaking down every facet of the 100+ hours that can easily be spent in Armada 2’s single-player offering.

This second beta features:
  • The 12 playable factions
  • The 80+ subfactions
  • Ranked play
  • Updated custom map options with special environmental effects from the first beta.
  • Prologue of the campaign
  • First sectors of the Imperium and Necron campaigns
The team has worked hard on your feedback from the first Beta and this second Beta will bring a lot of balance tweaks and bug fixes. You’ll find some highlights and a patchlog at the end of this post. Make sure to read our Quick Start Guide and the more detailed How to Start guide to prepare for the Beta.

Much like in the last Beta, we’re really interested in getting your feedback about all aspects of the game: balancing, technical issues, and now also the campaigns, including the Necron and Imperium first sectors.



We’d also like to tackle an important topic as we near the full release of Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2. This game is an incredibly ambitious project for our small team and we’ve worked hard to release a sequel improved in every way over the original. It includes 12 factions and three massive grand campaigns playable in co-op. But as we’re working around the clock to polish every part of the game, we will be forced to release the co-op mode in an early access state on launch. It will also not be available during this Beta phase.

This means that we’re simply not entirely satisfied yet by the level of polish on offer in the co-op mode. It will be available at release but we will continue to improve it and fix technical issues in this mode after launch and our current estimation for the full release of campaign co-op is during March. In the meantime, the co-op mode will be playable on launch but you might experience some technical issues. Your feedback about this mode will be instrumental to make it stable as fast as possible.

Join us tonight for a campaign livestream on Focus Home Twitch channel to discuss the update and give us your opinion!

About This Game

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 is the new real-time strategy game adapted from Games Workshop’s famous tabletop game that portrays the epic space battles of the Warhammer 40,000 universe.

Expanding on the groundwork laid out by the first game, Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 is a full-blown sequel - bigger, richer, more impressive and more ambitious than the original game. It will include, at launch, all 12 factions from the original tabletop game and its expansions it is based on: the Imperial Navy, Space Marines, Adeptus Mechanicus, Necrons, Chaos, Aeldari Corsairs, Aeldari Craftworld, Drukhari, the T’au Merchant and Protector Fleets, Orks, and finally, the Tyranids.

The latest dramatic story development in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, the Gathering Storm and the 13th Black Crusade, serves as the canvas for three extensive and dynamic campaigns with high narrative values, focusing on the Tyranids, the Necrons, and the Imperium. Explore the systems in the Eye of Terror, with or against renowned characters such as Belisarius Cawl, Gulliman and more.

With bigger battles, refined gameplay, improved multiplayer modes and features for a better and more balanced online experience, as well as improvements across the board and even more customisation options for fleets and ships, Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 promises to be the ultimate Warhammer 40,000 space battle experience.
