Battlefleet Gothic: Armada is the RTS videogame adaptation of Games Workshop’s classic tabletop game, pitting the Chaos, Imperium, Eldar, and Orks against each other in visceral space-battles.
Developed with Unreal Engine 4, Battlefleet Gothic: Armada offers deep management of every ship composing the player’s fleet, both during and between battles. From the fastest frigates to the gigantic, miles-long battleships, the player will customize all aspects of his ships: weaponry, defense and support sub-systems, but also crew, captains, and more... each customization affecting the very performances of the ship and the special abilities available during battle. From battle to battle, the admirals and crew of surviving ships will gain experience and promotions, improving the battle-readiness of the ships for future, bigger and more dangerous battles.
Additionally an extensive multiplayer mode with persistent fleets where up to 4 players can battle simultaneously, Battlefleet Gothic: Armada also features a big story campaign, taking place during the 12th Black Crusade and putting players in the middle of the Gothic War that raged between the Imperium and Abaddon the Despoiler. Players will be at the centre of every fight, commanding fleets of gigantic ships as the Chaos unleash a sequential chain of surprise attacks on Imperium worlds – the start of 20 years of warring in the sector. An expansive single-player campaign across the Gothic sector. Four factions to command, each one with its own strengths and skills.
Plus, there's never going to be "nothing to do", as special PVP gameplay will ensure there's always someone to battle, someone to match wits against, and sometimes to test your skills on. So once you think you're "done" with the main game, go online and see how good you are there!.
Battlefleet Gothic Armada isn't just a recreation, it's an accurate adaptation of the classic game, with many of the ships going through painstaking creation to ensure that they match the ships you know and love from the tabletop game.
