New Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 Trailer Focuses on Campaigns

Tindalos Interactive and Focus Home Interactive have released a new trailer for Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 ahead of its release later this month.

The latest trailer, as seen above, focuses on the three grand solo campaigns the game has to offer. The campaigns are set during the 13th Black Crusade, and allow players to choose from the Imperium, Tyranids, and Necrons. The goal of each campaign is to conquer the star systems around the dreaded Eye of Terror as Abaddon’s Chaos crusade fleet wreaks havoc on Cadia.

Each faction has a different approach to how they will go about conquering the system, and rely on using completely different mechanics to gather resources, capture territory, and raise fleets. Each campaign can also be played cooperatively, with players splitting control of their fleets during battle.

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2‘s second preorder beta also has a release date now: January 15th. The beta will run until the game launches on the 24th.

Here’s a rundown of 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.

Key Features:

  • The ultimate Warhammer 40,000 space naval warfare experience
  • All 12 factions from the original tabletop game
  • Three dynamic solo campaigns (Tyranids, Necrons and Imperium)

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 will be available on Windows PC via Steam and the Humble Store for $39.99. Returning customers will get a 25% discount when preordering.
