Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 is almost here – due on January 24th – and the space-naval strategy sequel looks to be a tad bigger and more ambitious than its predecessor. In the very seriously narrated info-dump trailer below (it sounds like the man is speaking in ALL CAPS ALL THE TIME), it lays out what its new single-player side entails. While there are twelve playable factions, the story side of the game contains just three campaigns – Imperial, Necron & Tyranid – though each has their own distinct systems and even narrative style. Take a look at the shape of ships to come below.

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 has been delayed into next year, publisher Focus Home Interactive has announced.

Originally scheduled for release in September, developer Tindalos Interactive has now pushed the game—which pits Cathedral-sized spaceships against one another in gigantic RTS battles—into January 2019.

“These couple of additional months of development will allow developers Tindalos to polish the game and bring all their ambitions to life after the great success met by the first game,” Focus Home said in a statement.

These months won’t be used purely for fine-tuning, however. Focus Home added that the extra time will also see a new feature added to the game; cooperative multiplayer. This will be functional across the three new narrative campaigns the sequel offers.

What’s more, Players who pre-order will be able to get involved in this coop action early, through two closed betas. “More details about the dates and content of these pre-order betas will be communicated shortly,” Focus Home said.

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada II aims to expand upon the success of the first game, making all 12 of the original tabletop game’s factions available to play at launch. 

Alongside news of the delay, Focus Home released a new faction trailer showing the different fleets in action. It also includes a scene in which a spaceship literally devours another spaceship, which certainly piqued my interest. You  can watch that below.

Romain Clavier, Co-founder & Game Director of Tindalos Interactive, and Aurélien Josse, Co-founder & Art Director, describe their ambitions and how they are making Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 better than its predecessor in every way.

For the first time in a video game, the latest story development in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, Gathering Storm and the 13th Black Crusade, will serve as the canvas for the story of several dynamic campaigns. The game will also bring all 12 factions from the original tabletop game, playable in both solo and multiplayer, including the highly anticipated Necrons and Tyranids.



With bigger battles, refined gameplay, improved multiplayer modes and features for a better and more balanced online experience, 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!

Finally get a sneak peek of the creative process at Tindalos, a team passionate about the Warhammer 40,000 universe since their childhood - a passion that followed them to this day and is evident in their work.

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 is planned for release on PC in 2018.

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada, the game about gigantic, gunned-up medieval cathedrals in space (and also some orks) is getting a sequel. Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 will be "bigger, richer, more impressive, and more ambitious" than the first game, publisher Focus Home Interactive announced today, and will include all 12 factions from the tabletop game. 

Let's run 'em down: That's the Imperial Navy, Space Marines, Adeptus Mechanicus, Necrons, Chaos, Aeldari Corsairs, Aeldari Craftworld, Drukhari, the T'au Merchant and Protector Fleets, Orks, and Tyranids. The game itself will feature multiple "extensive and dynamic campaigns" taking place during the events of the Gathering Storm and the 13th Black Crusade, "the latest dramatic story development in Warhammer 40,000 universe."

The reveal trailer is suitably epic—the Warhammer setting is nothing if not big—and we quite liked the first Battlefleet Gothic: Armada, although we noted in our review that the 2D battles themselves, while "challenging and interesting," were also "quite unbalanced." That's a shortcoming Focus Home acknowledged in the sequel announcement, saying that Armada 2 will feature "a better and more balanced online experience." 

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 will be shown for the first time at the What's Next De Focus event in Paris, running February 7-8. It's expected to be released sometime this year. 

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 is due out on PC at some point in 2018, publisher Focus Home Interactive has announced.

The sequel to 2016's well-received Warhammer 40,000-flavoured real-time strategy space battle game includes all 12 factions from the original Games Workshop tabletop game and its expansion Armada. They are the Imperial Navy, Space Marines, Adeptus Mechanicus, Necrons, Chaos, Aeldari Corsairs, Aeldari Craftworld, Drukhari, the T'au Merchant and Protector Fleets, Orks and the Tyranids.

The campaigns revolve around the Gathering Storm and the 13th Black Crusade story development currently going on in the Warhammer 40,000 universe.
