For a time it looked as though strategy games had sunk into a kind of deathly malaise, unsure which territory to claim next and which ones it should leave well and truly alone. Fast forward to 2020, though, and strategy games have never looked healthier, which is why we’ve compiled this best strategy games list of all time. Whether you want to conquer the depths of space, wage historical warfare or hulk around in big mechanical robots, there’s a strategy game for you below.



You’ll ocassionally find someone on the internet sounding off about how the strategy genre is dead. If you see such a person in the future, send them this list of the best strategy games ever made.


Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 is really good, but it's also kind of a niche thing: Tactical capital ship combat in the 41st century isn't going to be everyone's cup of tea, after all. If you're not sure which side of that particular line you stand on, now you can find out for free.

From today until until 11 am PT/2 pm ET on August 26, Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 is free to play on Steam. Just go to the store page, click the "play now" button, and have at it. It's the full version of the game so you can dive as deeply into it as you can manage over a three-day stretch in solo, co-op, or versus multiplayer (although that might not be the best idea ever if you're just getting into it), but the Chaos Campaign expansion released in June is not included.

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 is also on sale for 40 percent off during the free weekend, dropping it to $24/£21/€24. The Chaos Campaign expansion is also on sale, for $11/£10/€11.

The Emperor calls for new Admirals!

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 is free to play on Steam right now until August 26, 6pm GMT, and can be purchased at 40% off, the biggest discount yet. If you have a friend who has been on the fence about conquering the galaxy in co-op with you, this could be the right moment to invite him to bask in the glory of the Emperor.

The Chaos Campaign Expansion, that brought a brand new Chaos arc in June, is also available at 15% off, but is not free to play during this time.

In the recent Campaign update, the game got a huge amount of new content: secondary objectives on every map, significantly improved fleet management, A.I. ultimate powers, a ton of quality of life additions, and in-depth campaign options that allow you to tailor every facet of a campaign to your liking.

As a result of numerous updates, the game is currently in the best state it has ever been in. Whether you play solo, co-op, or versus multiplayer, there has never been a better time to delve into the grim darkness of the far future.

Season 4 begins!

For veterans of the grim darkness of space, we have more news! Season 4 of competitive has now begun! Rewards corresponding to your position on the leaderboard have already gone out. Return to the chaos of war and claim your spoils: portraits, frames, and achievements await!
