We’re happy to release our third major update for Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 today!

It features the full release of the campaign co-op mode, new Necron ships, including a brand new one that will breathe terror into even the most battle-hardened admiral, and a massive number of bug fixes and balancing tweaks based on your feedback.


It’s been two months since the release of the game and we’d like to thank you once again for your enthusiasm! This new patch is an important milestone in our post-launch support. You can read more about the past updates here, and find our post-launch roadmap below as a reminder of what’s to come.

  • New Necron ship: Grand Cruiser Scourge
  • New Necron ship: Cruiser Scythe Ruiner
  • New Necron ship: Cruiser Scythe Harrower
  • New Necron ship: Light Cruiser Sekhem
  • The AI should now show its flank when front weapons are destroyed and show its front when lateral weapons are destroyed.

The most exciting feature, at least around the BoLS office, is the campaign co-op mode. It does exactly what you’d think, splitting up the forces in each mission so that two commanders can assemble their fleets and set out on the campaign map. It’s a great way to play–the game is at its best with a buddy. You can check out more right here.

Good luck Admirals!
