Warhammer 40k takes to the stars in Battlefleet Gothic: Armada

The first game to feature ship-to-ship, large scale conflicts in the Warhammer 40k universe, Battlefleet Gothic: Armada is looking pretty nice in this new teaser.

Tindalos Interactive, fresh off their RTS Etherium, has what looks to be something of a special looking game on their hands with Battlefleet Gothic: Armada. Set in the Warhammer 40k universe (which has had no shortage of representation in gaming as of late), this strategy title takes the franchise to the stars for some space battles, which is definitely something new for the grim future property.

Using the Unreal 4 engine, Armada is a real-time strategy title and will feature Imperial, Chaos, Eldar and Ork forces that you’ll command on the grand stage of interplanetary warfare that’ll be represented by he ‘Gothic’ sector of space. Apparently, all of the above are vying for control of the creepily-named zone, and if you know anything about the Warhammer 40k universe, then you know that’s going to mean trouble.

Tindalos is promising that you have full fleets to command here with small and nimble frigates battling alongside “miles-long battleships”. You’ll also be able to customize these craft to your liking, specing-out offensive, defensive, and support systems, as well as what special abilities will be available during combat. All of which sounds as awesome as can be.

You’ll also carry over your commanders and crew from battle to battle… providing they survive of course. They’ll rise in the ranks and even serve to improve the battle-readiness of your fleet as they gain all-important combat experience… which also sounds pretty darn cool.

Expect lots more on this one in the months to come, all of which we’ll have for you as it breaks, here on BG.
