Tindalos Interactive & Focus Home Interactive says:

We are extremely proud to release Battlefleet Gothic: Armada, and we’d like to thank all of you for your continued support during the beta. Your feedback has been incredibly helpful while ironing out the game for release.

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada’s release is a milestone we’re happy to be celebrating. However, thanks to your feedback, we will continue to focus on improving and providing support for our game well after the launch.

Our team is still dedicated to releasing updates, and we are already working on post-release content. The Space Marine fleet is being fleshed out (as you can see in the Launch Trailer), as well as the upcoming additional fleet.

Space Marines, as well as an additional faction that we will unveil later, will be offered to all the Early Adopters of the game. Early Adopters include all players who pre-ordered the game, as well as anyone who buys it within two months after release.

Welcome in the Gothic Sector!

 

Greetings Admirals!

Your crew is ready at their battle stations, your macro-canons are loaded, and the Adeptus Mechanicus’ priests have performed the activation rites of the plasma reactors of your ship. The astropath is now connecting to the Warp.

The Gothic Sector is on the verge of apocalypse, and you will have to fight like never before to save it from the claws of Abaddon the Despoiler and his 12th Black Crusade.

This is it. Battlefleet Gothic: Armada is now available!

We want you to know that this is not the end of a journey, but just its beginning. The proud Space Marines are already on their way to assist the Imperial Navy.

ETA is in one and a half months from now, and we have high hopes they won’t get lost in the Warp on the way.

We, at Tindalos Interactive, wish to thank all of the players who participated in the Beta, and provided us with valuable feedback. We would also like to assure you that the studio, with the support of our publisher Focus Home Interactive, will be entirely dedicated to the development and support of Battlefleet Gothic: Armada.

We will work relentlessly on balancing and also to add new content. We will listen to your feedback and your expectations – together, we’ll strive to make Battlefleet Gothic: Armada something truly unique.

Spectacular in-game space battles pit the Imperium against the Chaos for the first time

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada, the new RTS based on Games Workshop’s tabletop game, is for the first time unveiled through pre-alpha gameplay covering the basics of what to expect from Tindalos Interactive’s new game.

Developed on Unreal Engine 4, Battlefleet Gothic: Armada is an RTS in which the player takes command of one of these battlefleets composed of the most powerful spaceships from the Imperial, Chaos, Eldar and Ork forces, in a no-quarter given struggle for the control of the Gothic sector of space.

Featuring many different game modes including dramatic battles in both single and multiplayer, against players and the AI, and a full single-player campaign pitting you against Abaddon the Despoiler, Battlefleet Gothic: Armada will have you unlocking and upgrading the ships in your fleet as well as specializing the captains that helm them, each with their own behaviors.

Featuring an ambitious campaign against Abaddon the Despoiler, command the Imperium fleet throughout the Gothic sector, securing systems and making choices that will affect the story along the way. In the campaign, you’ll meet – and perhaps more! – the Eldar, and the enigmatic Space Marines as you try to vanquish the sector of Chaos influence.

Each faction has its own strengths and skills. The Imperium are heavily armored with a lot of torpedoes, powerful macro weapons and harness the awesome nova cannon. The Chaos are fast, with a longer range than the other factions, utilizing powerful lances.

Learn the basics of Battlefleet Gothic: Armada by watching the exciting new gameplay trailer, and look forward to the release in 2016 on PC.

    Been playing the game since Wednesday (multiplayer was open for pre-orders). I find the game very, very fun.

    And as an Ork player on the tabletop, I am supremely satisfied with smashing the big red button and ramming an enemy.

  • ashikenshin

    This game is hard! for those of us who aren’t very good at commanding naval units.

    • durendin

      Durendin top tip – when fighting against Eldar, target their engines and ram them!

  • Crablezworth

    Good game, nice for once not to have shovelware crap

  • Niraco

    Finnaly a good game of warhammer.
    Surprised the campaign on high difficulty levels is challanging. Having 2 dauntless and escorts versus chaos battlecruisers and multiple cruisers and winning the mission is extremely satisfying.
