Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 Announced, Set for 2018 Release

Focus Home Interactive and developer Tindalos Interactive have announced Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2.

The new sci-fi strategy game with medieval themes set within the Warhammer 40,000 universe is set for a launch sometime this year, for Windows PC. Featured above, you can view the game’s announcement trailer.

Fans can expect the game to include all twelve factions from the tabletop game in what is being posed as “bigger, richer, more impressive, and more ambitious” than the original game. This includes: 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 story will unfold via multiple “extensive and dynamic campaigns” taking place during the Gathering Storm and 13th Black Crusade timelines, which fans know to be “the latest dramatic story development in Warhammer 40,000 universe.”

Finally, Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 will be shown off in public for the first time at the What’s Next De Focus event in Paris, from February 7th to the 8th.

    This is what a sequel should always be.More of everything.Hope they are not stretching themselves too thin though.What made the first so great was the attention to detail.

    >Gathering Storm.
    >Papa Smurf.
    >Necrons.
    >Tyranids.
    >Ynnari.

    Okay.. you’ve got my attention. Don’t lose it by doing something stupid and keeping the extra factions as DLC or something.

    Oh boy! I can’t wait for another unsupported cash-grab game that will see initial production, hype and hysteria, only to disappear in under 2 years. Just like the original. Speaking of which, has any seen a copy of Space Hulk, …I can’t seem to find it. Blood Bowl anyone?…no?
