Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 Release Date and Beta Test Schedule Confirmed

Focus Home Interactive and developer Tindalos Interactive have announced the release date for Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2.

The Warhammer 40,000 space-sim RTS will launch on January 24th of next year for Windows PC, via Steam. The game will get two “pre-order betas” leading up to its full release, the first of which is kicking off in December of this year.

The December beta will last a week and includes all twelve factions, as well as full multiplayer progression, AI skirmishes, 1v1, and 2v2 battles. The second beta is coming in January, and will run through the game’s release. This beta includes all the previous content plus the first two sections of two story campaigns.

To secure a place in the beta, you just need to pre-order Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 over on Steam – there’s currently a 10% discount, and 25% if you own the first 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.
