'Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2' Gets Release Date, Pre-Order Beta Schedule - Screens

by Rainier on Oct. 19, 2018 @ 3:01 a.m. PDT

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 is a real-time strategy game that portrays the epic space battles from the Warhammer 40,000 universe, but bigger, richer, and more ambitious than the original.

It will include, at launch, all 12 factions from the original tabletop game and its expansion Armada 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, will serve as the canvas for several, extensive and dynamic campaigns.

With bigger battles, refined gameplay, improved multiplayer modes and features for a better and more balanced online experience, 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.


Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 will run two pre-order beta phases ahead of its release on January 24 next year.

The betas will feature a selection of content, including all of the 12 factions aforementioned, the introduction of two of the three massive narrative campaigns, and much more. Players who pre-order between now and release will receive access to both betas, and their vital feedback will help make Armada 2 the best game possible.

The first beta will take place in early December and is focused on multiplayer and balance. All 12 factions, the full multiplayer progression system, custom games, plus 2v2, 1v1, and versus AI will be available to everyone who pre-orders before or during this week-long event. Developers Tindalos Interactive will use this opportunity to listen to feedback on everything, from the balance of individual ships to the rate of unlocks. Custom fleets built of any combination of ships from a faction allow for a totally open system and Tindalos are looking forward to seeing what fans will cook up.

Beta 2 will begin in January and run up to the launch of the game on the 24th. This will include all the content from Beta 1, including patches and improvements developed during the downtime, plus hours of single-player campaign content. Included will be the Campaign Prologue - acting as a tutorial and story set up - as well as the first sectors of two campaigns. It will give a preview of the ship-building, empire-conquering, narrative-driven offerings of Armada 2 and will be just a taste of the full game.

Throughout and between both betas, Tindalos Interactive will be providing constant updates to fix bugs, apply balance changes, and track all the most important issues of the community. All pre-orders will receive access to both betas, and come with a 10% discount. Those who own the original Battlefleet Gothic: Armada will instead benefit from a 25% discount.

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 is available for pre-order on Steam, offering Beta Access before the release of the game, and a 10% discount! Returning Battlefleet Gothic: Armada players on Steam instead benefit from a 25% loyalty discount on their preorder of Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2.

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 will be available on PC starting January 24, 2019.
