Battlefleet Gothic: Armada today unleashes its Tau Empire DLC with an explosive trailer! 
Battlefleet Gothic: Armada, the RTS videogame adaptation of Games Workshop’s classic tabletop game by Tindalos Interactive today releases a new faction – the Tau Empire – along with an explosive trailer. The Tau are playable in the multiplayer modes of Battlefleet Gothic: Armada, as well as in Skirmish mode against the AI.

The alien Tau Empire has rapidly expanded across the galaxy, aided by highly advanced technology and a total dedication to the Greater Good philosophy. Their fleets excel at long range, with powerful weapons dealing massive amounts of damage from afar. Skilled Tau admirals can eliminate the bulk of an enemy fleet before they can even get within boarding distance. The Tau have access to a wide array of upgrades and traits to improve their fleet even more.

As announced several months ago, the Tau Empire faction will be free to all Early Adopters of the game on Steam. The Early Adopter offer applies to all Steam pre-purchase owners, as well as those who bought the game on Steam during the first two months following the game’s release (before June 21, 2016). Players who purchased Battlefleet Gothic: Armada after June 21 will be able to purchase the Tau Empire as DLC today.

The Tau Empire DLC releases today on Steam and is free for all Early Adopters.


There you have it folks – September 29th marks the arrival of the Tau in the Gothic Sector. I wonder who could be next?


Oh look what I spy in a couple of these pics… Demiurg.  And they say the Squats are dead…


Well I know what I’m grabbing when I get home today…

    Tau are quite the powerful long range faction. Think of a mix of eldar and IN.

    It would be cool if the Tau got massive space battlesuits; Macross big.
