Focus Home Interactive and developer Tindalos Interactive have announced a delay for Battlefleet: Gothic Armada 2.
The space-faring Warhammer 40,000-based real-time strategy game will forgo its planned 2018 release for one sometime in January of next year. Once released, the game will be available for Windows PC, via Steam.
Tindalos noted they wanted extra time to improve the game and polish it up further. What’s more, the extra dev time will let the team focus on expanding the planned cooperative play support into a whopping three story campaigns.
The game will have more than just the three main factions like Ork, Eldar, and Space Marines – there’s twelve total factions available from the launch of the game.
Here’s a rundown on the game:
Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 is the new real-time strategy game adapted from Games Workshop’s famous tabletop game that portrays the epic space battles of the Warhammer 40,000 universe.
Expanding on the groundwork laid out by the first game, Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 is a full-blown sequel – bigger, richer, more impressive and more ambitious than the original game. It will include, at launch, all 12 factions from the original tabletop game and its expansions it is based on: the Imperial Navy, Space Marines, Adeptus Mechanicus, Necrons, Chaos, Aeldari Corsairs, Aeldari Craftworld, Drukhari, the T’au Merchant and Protector Fleets, Orks, and finally, the Tyranids.
The latest dramatic story development in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, the Gathering Storm and the 13th Black Crusade, serves as the canvas for three extensive and dynamic campaigns with high narrative values, focusing on the Tyranids, the Necrons, and the Imperium. Explore the systems in the Eye of Terror, with or against renowned characters such as Belisarius Cawl, Gulliman and more.
With bigger battles, refined gameplay, improved multiplayer modes and features for a better and more balanced online experience, as well as improvements across the board and even more customisation options for fleets and ships, Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 promises to be the ultimate Warhammer 40,000 space battle experience.
