Fitted with the finest technology in the universe, Eldar ships are fast and highly manoeuvrable. They pack serious firepower, with incredible damage projection and application. Their strategy is based around hit-and-run assaults, taking their targets by surprise while inflicting maximum damage. Their speed allows them to disappear as fast as they arrived, as shown in today’s Eldar trailer. Eldar ships are as fast as they are fragile – they lack in any heavy armour. With the exception of their battleships, their craft are not fitted with shields, instead relying on advanced Holo-fields in conjunction with their speed and agility to avoid incoming fire. This makes them extremely hard to track and hit with conventional weaponry. Destroying Eldar ships’ engines is the best way to keep them at close-range, ensuring you have enough time to inflict lethal damage.

The Eldar fleet will be joining the beta next week! They will be ready to pit their guerilla tactics against the Ork’s brutal manoeuvres, the Chaos’ long-range gameplay and the Imperium’s balanced style, during epic and tactical space battles. Eldar fleets are built around strategies based on speed, surprise and sudden firepower, offering a brand new gameplay style and deep tactical options for Battlefleet Gothic players.

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada releases two weeks from now– and thanks to the tantalizing fun offered by the Beta, almost 100,000 players have already preordered the game. The current beta players, along with all who join them, will be able to help Tindalos balance the Eldar fleets as soon as next week, just like they have the other three factions. This will ensure the best possible experience when the game releases on April 21.

Players can preorder Battlefleet Gothic: Armada’s Early Adopters Edition. This edition is available to all players who preorder the game, as well as those who buy the game up to two months after release. Early Adopters will receive the Space Marines fleet + one additional fleet (more info coming soon) for free, as well as instant access to the beta. Battlefleet Gothic: Armada will releaseApril 21 on PC.

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada will release April 21st on PC.

  • Azatoth

    Another fleet in the early adopter, based on the table top it could be Necrons or Tyranids?

    • Marti Barker

      The tyranid fleet would shake things up a bit, gameplay wise.
      Necrons didnt really have much variety, if I remember correctly.
      However there is a Tau Air Caste symbol on the webside at the bottom of the side-menu….

      • Marti Barker

        Forgot to attach

        • Azatoth

          Well that’s a hint! 🙂 Ty for sharing.

      • Tati

        Nah, the necrons didnt have much for variety, but they made up for it in survivability and fire power

        • Krizzab

          portals, portals, everywhere!!

    • Mathew G. Smith

      Early adopters get Space Marines before anyone else.

    • Mathew G. Smith

      Could also be Tau, Dark Eldar, or Ad Mech.

  • Myu

    Wish they’d released this today, I want it now! 😛

    • Azrell

      It already has Imps, Orks, and Chaos you can play. You just cant play more than the first 2 campaign missions until it releases. Jump in the beta, its a rather good game, and the devs are very active on the forums and big fans of the tabletop game.

  • Majere613

    As an honorary Ork, I must protest that in none of these trailers have the Ork ships actually fired any weapons at anything. Ork weapons should always be firing, even if there isn’t anything to shoot at.

    • euansmith

      Datz cuz, da Orkz uv got so much dakka, da uver boyz don’t stand no chance.

    • Hedwerx

      Go on yootoob and look for TotalBiscuit’s Armada vid.
      ‘E Playz da Orkz innit. Plus He’s into 40k so he’s quite enthusiastic about it.

    • Pale_Rider86

      I’ve been testing this game for a month or two, and trust me, Orks git plentyz o’ dakka! (But Grot launchaz iz just a bit betta)

  • Shiwan8

    Well, at least they are properly arrogant.

  • Local Ork

    Anyone know sys requirements? I’d love to run it on tablet, but graphics look too good…

    • Hedwerx

      Min specs: 64bit OS, 3.6GHz processor, 4GB RAM, 1GB Graphics card (DX11), 10GB HDD space.

    • Darren Rushworth-Moore
